It’s nearly that time of the year, when the nation is gripped by garish colours, glittery bobbles and fun festive puns – but it’s all for a good cause! And a quartet of Corgis, decked out in PetsPyjamas festive finest have joined in the fun, showing the nation’s pups that they too can get involved to make a difference.
Save the Children’s annual fundraiser falls on Friday 16th December 2016 with the aim to raise money to help clothe, feed and make children living in refugee camps feel safe this winter.
To kick-start this year’s fundraising, wax museum Madame Tussauds teamed up with the children’s charity to deck out their most regal waxworks – The Royal Family – in a variety of woolly pullies.
Caught on camera, and then later hot-footing over to ITV’s This Morning Studios, with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield to help promote the cause, Her Majesty the Queen was appropriately dressed in a woolly jumper featuring a Corgi, whereas the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rocked a bright, two-person knit. Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall emulated Mrs Claus and Prince Harry’s jumper featured a cheeky penguin.
The Royal Family also had some Very Important Paws by their feet – the Queen’s favourite breed of course. Corgis’ Marcel (@marcel.lecorgi), Rupert (@Rupert_TheCorgi), Cuthbert (@cuthbertcorgi) and Jimmy all wore and modelled woolly knits of their own in the fashion of our gorgeous Doggy Things Snowflake Knitted Jumper, in a festive red and green colourway.
If you want to see the royals in their woolly jumpers, they’ll be on display at Madame Tussauds throughout December.
A whole host of celebrities and fellow pet lovers will be joining in with the fun, including Jess Wright from TOWIE, former footballer Jamie Redknapp, actress Ashley Jensen and singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor.
We’re getting our four-legged friends involved in this worthwhile cause and hope you will too! Snap up a fantastic woolly jumper for your pet from our fabulous collection and sign up to get you and your dog involved at https://christmasjumperday.org/
