Some dogs were simply destined for royalty, and Archie the Pembrokeshire Welsh Corgi is one of them.

Archie was crowned ‘Most Royal Pooch’ at DogFest 2022, the UK’s biggest dog-friendly festival, at Ragley Hall in Warwickshire on Saturday.

The year-old pup – also known as His Royal Archieness on Instagram – has a royal habit of “waving like the Queen”.

owner Lauren Coles, 29, from Warwickshire, spoke to The Mirror about Archie’s gorgeous personality and shared his celebratory plans for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.

Lauren said: “Archie is very friendly, lively and so well-behaved. If he gives you his paw, he’ll gently wave it in the air, just like the queen.”

Last July, Lauren and her partner Adam Bourdon, 30, welcomed pup Archie to their new home and chose a corgi as the breed was recommended for first-time owners.

Despite his royal nature, Archie’s name wasn’t inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan’s son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – Lauren says they just liked him and thought he was a perfect match.

She said: “Archie is very patient and will wait as long as possible for a treat. He is very hungry and his favorite snack is cookies.

“We try not to give him human ones – although he likes them – but he’s allowed gingernuts if he gets motion sickness.”

Much like Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis, Archie enjoys walking and playing in the great outdoors, and socializing with other dogs.

“His best friend is a Finnish Lapphund named Mara and they play so beautifully together,” Lauren said.

Ahead of attending DogFest on Saturday, Lauren Archie signed for the Ulti-Mutt Royal competition and was delighted to be nominated for the final.

Archie competed against other wannabe royal puppies, including rescue dog Duke and Princess Peanut the dachshund, to claim the crown.

He was awarded a platinum prize basket filled with enrichment toys, peanut butter, a special anniversary bandana and a matching bow tie.

“It was incredible to win and we had such a great day,” said Lauren.

Archie will be dressed for the role this weekend in one of his sleek Union Jack bandanas, which he is representing for a company on Instagram.

“We’re going to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee by going to a jubilee corgi meet in Leicestershire with a dozen other corgis,” Lauren said.

“Then we’ll have a picnic in the park with our little village.”

It won’t be scones and sandwiches for Archie – but maybe he’ll get a cheeky cookie while he’s there.
