A happy reunion 20 May 1998

RCIN 2943871

In May 1998 The Queen made a visit to Vindolanda Roman Fort on Hadrian’s Wall. She is pictured here stroking a dog as she tours the site. This dog was already known to The Queen. This is Watney, a dorgi bred by Her Majesty at Windsor two years previously and passed to a friend living near Hexham, and what we are actually seeing is a happy reunion between the two.
