It’s a heartbreaking day for Queen Elizabeth as she says learns of a devastating loss.
On January 2nd, Her Majesty was told that one of her most beloved horses, PH Keston, had died.
The news of PH Keston’s loss came as a shock to Her Majesty who adores each of her animals. As an animal lover, the Queen’s animals have always felt like family to her.
PH Keston was one of Queen Elizabeth’s most adored horses who she often requested for special events. PH Keston served in the New Year's Day Parade just two days before passing away. Queen Elizabeth always referred to Keston as a “crowd-pleaser.”
The news was shared by the Metropolitan Task Force. The original announcement read, “It's with the greatest of sadness to announce that PH Keston has passed away. PH Keston regularly escorted HM The Queen on various state events and other high profile occasions. He was a real crowd-pleaser with people around London. Thank you for your service, Keston. Rip."
Queen Elizabeth has made it a priority to spend time with her animals. Even at 92 years old, she can still be seen riding her horses at Windsor Castle.
This news comes not only days after Keston’s appearance in the New Year’s Day Parade, but also just a couple months after the Queen said a final goodbye to one of her most adored animals: Whisper.
Whisper was the Queen’s last full-blooded corgis. Her Majesty exclusively owned corgis from the time she was a little girl and had 33 over the corse of her life. Whisper was the last corgi of her time. Now, she owns a cross-breed of corgis and dashshunds and calls them “dorgis.”
Please pray for the Queen as she navigates this difficult loss. Her animals are like family members to her so this has got to be a difficult time.
