The Queen's long association with corgi dogs may be coming to an end, an animal behavioural expert has claimed.

American trainer Monty Roberts, known as the horse whisperer, has said the Queen told him she did not want to have any more puppies of the famous breed.

Roberts told Vanity Fair magazine that in 2012 he asked the Queen to name her favoured corgi breeder so he could replace one of her pets that had died that year.

It was named Monty in his honour and famously appeared with the Queen and James Bond actor Daniel Craig in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.

The trainer said: "But she didn't want to have any more young dogs. She didn't want to leave any young dog behind."
