She may be well known for her love of Corgis – she’s owned more than 30 during her reign – but a series of drawings Queen Elizabeth II made when she was just a toddler reveal a surprising twist – she liked cats!

As the Queen celebrated her 90th birthday last year, a series of doodles and drawings, signed by ‘Princess Lillybet’ capture the then three-year-old as she enjoys the simple pleasure of drawing, showing she was once a carefree child far away from the pressures of statehood.

The unique drawings were part of several documents that belonged to the former Royal photographer, Marcus Adams. The couple who found them have put them up for sale at The collection is valued at £15,000 and includes the drawings, letters, and photographs of the Royal Family from the early 20th century.

The Queen may have a pack of Corgis now, but it looks like she preferred to draw cats when she was a child!

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
