The 92-year-old monarch has always had a soft spot for corgis owning several of the dogs over her lifetime, three of which appeared in the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony film the Queen participated in.
It appears that on the Queen's return to London, a dog was carried up the stairs onto the plane by what is believed to be a staff member.
The Queen was rugged up in a grey coat for the occasion with a patterned headscarf while Prince Philip was sporting a white shirt and a dark coloured jacket as they embarked the plane home.
The royals have clearly enjoyed their summer break in Balmoral often spotted driving around the grounds of their Balmoral residence and regularly attending church with family and friends.
But, the fun isn’t coming to an end just yet as the royals return home in time for their grand-daughter, Princess Eugenie’s wedding.
The princess is set to tie the knot with Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle on October 12.
There has been speculation that Philip may not be well enough to attend the wedding after having hip surgery earlier this year.
However sources say that if he is well enough he will be there.
“He absolutely adores Eugenie,” a palace insider told Express.
“He can’t stand up for very long, which makes church services hard work and he can’t stand Fergie, but he wants to see Eugenie married and, if he is fit enough to be there, he will be there.”
