The Royal family although public figures – do like to keep themselves to themselves – nobody wants all of their likes, dislikes and everything else you can find to be used for public knowledge. One thing that we already knew about the Queen is that she does have a love for animals. Of course a lot of people will automatically think about the corgies she has – but recent photos that have previously been unseen show the Queen definitely had an early love for horses and of course they have been a big part of the Royal family’s life since then.
One of the photos that has recently come to light show the Queen at roughly 4-years-old sitting on top of a Shetland Pony she had named Peggy which was a gift from her grandfather. You can see her smiling brightly, paying close attention to her Father, who was then the Duke of York, as he looks on. Another photograph taken by her Father in 1928 includes the Queen playing on a small toy horse in Naseby Hall gardens pretending to ride it – with her mother encouraging her and cheering her on.
