Queen Elizabeth II once called Prince Philip cruel following a shocking incident.

In the BBC documentary “Elizabeth R,” footage of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visiting the Sandringham Kennels was released. While there, the royal couple met a group of gun dogs that were being trained.

One of the Labrador retrievers was seen picking up his dummy and instead of returning it to its owner, the dog went straight to the Prince. Upon seeing her husband with the adorable dog, the Queen couldn’t help but laugh.

Prince Philip played with a dog for a few minutes before he told Her Majesty that the dog is someone else’s. The comment surprised the monarch so she called her husband cruel.

According to Express, gun dogs are the best in the world and the Queen has been a keen supporter since she was young. She commandeered dogs to find birds at Balmoral and alerted them to the vagaries of scent and wind.

Meanwhile, the Queen is not the only member of the royal family who was fond of dogs. While Queen Alexandra was still alive, the Sandringham kennels reached approximately 100. But the Sandringham strain of Labrador retrievers was found in 1911.

David Clark, MVO and Sandringham’s former housekeeper previously detailed the Queen’s interactions with dogs during an interview for the Field magazine.

“You see a lady wearing a headscarf with a load of dogs around her and in a field of sporting people, you wouldn’t Her Majesty out. The great thing is animals understand her as well… That’s why she’s an amazing dog handler,” he said.

Other than gun dogs, the Queen was also very fond of taking care of Corgis. She reportedly saved the drying breed of her favorite breed. The Queen also took care of a handful of Corgis throughout her life but she recently stopped breeding them because she didn’t want the dogs to still be around when she’s no longer alive.
