Arguably one of the best things to come out of the upcoming Platinum Jubilee, or “platty joobs” as it’s becoming affectionately known, is the sheer proliferation of corgis. Taking inspiration from the Queen’s well-documented love of the breed there have been countless instances of corgi-themed events and celebrations. From corgi-themed foods, to a corgi trail treasure hunt and floral displays, London can’t seem to get enough. And neither can we. So imagine the giddy little dances we did as we saw these pictures of corgis taking over the Elizabeth line.
To commemorate the opening of the new Canary Wharf Elizabeth line station, and of course tying in to the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations, TFL recently welcomed the Welsh Corgi League for one of the cutest photoshoots of all time. Appropriately situated in the Isle of Dogs, the station saw an influx of 20 corgi delights, with bread-loaf-bum-wagging and tongue-lolling aplenty.
Andy Byford, London’s Transport Commissioner had the following to say of the event.
“We are thrilled to be joining in the celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. We will be running a special service on the recently opened Elizabeth line on Sunday, and there will be congratulatory announcements and digital signs at stations with a Royal link across the bank holiday weekend.”
Just look at those dogs. Look at those cheeky little smiles and proud faces. Those perked-up ears and tiny little legs. Okay, one more, just for good measure. It’s a public service you see, us sharing these images.
Catch us hanging around on the platform eagerly awaiting their next visit. Or just looking at these pictures over and over again.
