With the input of animal experts as well as royal biographers and correspondents, this programme analyses the unique relationship between members of the British monarchy and their pets and other animals through the ages. Prince William's Labrador Widgeon is said to have helped him deal with the death of his mother, while the film also investigates the popular belief that the Queen's corgis are served a special menu at Buckingham Palace. In addition, viewers are introduced to the Royal Swan Uppers - the men and women who count the swan population of the Thames every year - and are also given the privilege of a look inside the royal pigeon lofts.
