In Pictures: Queen and PM visit church but only one was joined by a furry friend

Both were accompanied by their respective Philips, but only one had an encounter with an adorable doggy.

The Queen and Theresa May both attended church services on Sunday morning.

The Duke of Edinburgh accompanied the Queen to St Peter and Paul Church in West Newton, Norfolk, while the Prime Minister was joined by her husband Philip.

The Prime Minister didn’t seem too phased by rumours of a plot to oust her in a Brexiteer coup as she played fetch with a black and white border collie named Blitz.
