I think I’m becoming a royalist. The top ladies (the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge) are all dog owners. And this week the people at Fortnum & Mason knew how to please them.
Each of the royals was gifted with a hamper which included Hearty Treats for Happy Hounds when they visited the retailer based in Piccadilly.

“Of course they all have dogs and we do want to think about what our customers like,” said Fortnum’s managing director Beverley Aspinall.
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, adopted a Jack Russell from the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home earlier this week.
According to the media statement released by Battersea, the puppy is named Beth and she is a tri-colour Jack Russell Terrier who is 3 months old. She was one of more than 100 stray dogs that the Home took in during the month of July.

The Duchess is familiar with the breed; she owned a much-loved Jack Russell named Freddy.
