In possibly the sweetest news today, the Queen has adopted a new dog because she "fell in love" with him.

According to The Sun, the dog, who's name is Whisper, was owned by Sandringham's gamekeeper Bill Fenwick, who passed away at the beginning of this year.

And after the Queen took the dog out on a walk, she decided she had to keep him.

"The Queen has always had corgis but she made the decision four years ago not to breed any more because she didn’t want to have a bad fall," an insider told The Sun. 

“She was also concerned dogs might be left without an owner if anything happened to her.

"But she couldn’t resist Whisper and now she has asked Bill’s family if she can keep him."

The Queen was apparently very close to Bill, and his wife Nancy, who passed away many years ago.

We'd say Whisper is delighted with his new home.

In this day and age, everyone is on social media… even the Queen.

But of course, she has a million and one responsibilities under her belt, so she's looking for someone to tweet for her.

Posted on Queen Lizzie's website, the royal mother is looking for a "digital communications officer" to join her fast-paced team.

The job is full time and pays £30,000 (€35,370) a year. All you have to do is keep her Twitter, Facebook and YouTube channel up to date (who knew the Queen had a YouTube channel?!).

You will also have 33 days of paid holidays, as well as a "comprehensive benefits package."

Sounds pretty sweet to us. Want to know more? Check out the Royal Household's website here.

For the first time in 28 years, Queen Elizabeth will not be attending the traditional Christmas service in Sandringham.

Since 1988, the Queen and members of the Royal Family have celebrated Christmas at St Mary Magdalene Church, but the monarch’s ill health has left her unable to attend today’s service.

Releasing a statement to the press and public, Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Queen, who turned 90 this year, has made the decision to opt out of the service in an effort to recover from a cold.

“The Queen continues to recover from a heavy cold and will stay indoors to assist with her recovery.”

“Her Majesty will participate in the Royal Family Christmas celebrations during the day.”

Various other members of the Royal Family will attend the service as usual.

This cereal is certainly fit for a Queen – Queen Elizabeth that is. 

As of today, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch in all of British history – surpassing her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. 

Her reign began on the 6th February 1952, yet her first royal duties didn't begin until the middle of the second World War. 

It's fair to say she has seen a lot in her time, with major constitutional changes such as the devolution of the UK and the decolonisation of Africa. 

As well as being the longest running monarch in England, she reaches another landmark around the world as she is now the 48th longest reigning monarch in all of history. 

Fair play Lizzie. 

To celebrate this day, Kelloggs have created a cereal fit for the Queen herself! 

The cereal is composed of gold leaf cornflakes, Special K. edible diamonds and pearls, and macadamia nuts – the Queen's favourite. 

Unfortunately, the royal flakes are not available world wide with only one Manchester café selling them. 

They are a bit pricey though with just one BOWL costing £6.30 (€8.65).

Yep… we think we'll stick to our Rice Crispies, thanks!

Apparently the royal family are just like the rest of us! They love watching TV too, we knew it couldn’t be all grand tea parties and walks with the corgis.

Queen Elizabeth is a massive Downton Abbey fan, obviously.

According to the Telegraph the Queen “loves Downton Abbey”. However, she also “likes to spot historical mistakes” in the series.

Brian Hoey, the author of At Home with the Queen revealed that the series came up in conversation with a worker at Buckingham Palace.

“We were talking about Trooping the Colour and how the Queen always notices if anything is not quite right, such as one young officer she spotted wearing his medals in the wrong order not long ago.”

The eagle-eyed royal also takes this attention to detail to her favourite television shows too:

“She loves watching Downton Abbey and pointing out things they have got wrong, partly because she is familiar with Highclere Castle, where it is filmed. She used to stay there as a guest of the Carnarvon family.”

Amongst the royal family the Queen is not the only Downton fangirl. Kate Middleton is apparently also a “huge” fan and makes William watch it with her.

While Prince Charles is apparently said to not be as keen on Downton the Queen also has some other favourites to choose from.

In 2011 she was reported to have told Mary Byrne, a former X Factor contestant, that she has her staff record every episode.

Oh no, Prince Philip has made a royal faux pas yet AGAIN.  

Queen Elizabeth II’s husband made headlines last week when he told a photographer to hurry up and “just take the f***ing picture.”

Now, the 94-year-old has done it again during a visit to the Chadwell Heath Community Centre in London alongside his wife yesterday afternoon.

Many readers took offence when Prince Philip was speaking to a group of female nurses at the centre and asked them, “who do you sponge off?”

ITV News quoted Nusrat Zamir as saying, “We’re all married, so it’s our husbands.”

The nurse explained that Prince Philip was “just teasing and it’s similar to what I call my husband – the wallet.”

Prince Philip is famous for making inappropriate comments when on Royal outings. While many people view him with the same eyes you would the lovable grandad you can’t bring anywhere for fear of what they'll say, many others feel that as a senior figure of the monarchy, his comments are not acceptable.

Here are some of the Prince’s most outrageous comments to date. 

1. An event for The Battle of Britain. Prince Philip tells the photographer to "take the f***ing picture."

2. On a trip to China in 1986, the Prince told a British student that if he stayed there much longer, he'd "go home with slitty eyes." 

3. In 2002, he asked and Aboriginal leader, William Brin, in Australia if the aborigines "still throw spears at each other?" Mr Brin replied saying, "No, we don't do that any more." When he was asked about the incident Mr Brin said that while he was "quite surprised" by the question, he found it very funny. 

4. When Prince Philip met the President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjoy, Mr Obasanjoy was in his ceremonial dress. The Prince remarked on this saying, "You look like you're ready for bed."

5. When Ashely Banjo's dance group Diversity won Britain's Got Talent in 2009, the Prince did it again by asking the multi-ethnic group, "Are you all one family?" 

6. When speaking to Lord John Taylor of Warwick – a Briton of Jamaican origin – the Prince asked, "What exotic part of the world do you come from?" To which the Lord politely replied, "Birmingham".

7. When Prince Philip visited the Cayman Islands in 1994, he somewhat surprised the natives by asking, "Aren't most of you descended from pirates?"

After just four weeks of maternity leave, Kate Middleton is looking set to return to her royal duties.

With the Queen’s birthday parade looming on 13th June, it has been reported that the Queen is expecting the Duchess of Cambridge to be there.

This four weeks maternity leave is even shorter than the 39 days the Duchess took after the birth of her son, Prince George, in 2013.

A source close to the royals told OK US that the Queen “thinks a month is more than enough time for Kate to take off before she should return to performing her royal duties.”

This will be Kate’s first public event since the birth of her daughter, Princess Charlotte. The whole world will be watching and we already can’t wait to see what elegant ensemble she will be donning this time.

Meanwhile it’s already business as usual for William who jetted of to Switzerland last week for his first public duty since the birth of his daughter.

Four weeks isn’t a long time but we are already dying to see some more family snaps now that Kate is almost back!
