The red carpet premiere for season two of Netflix‘s The Crown brought the glitz and glamour out to the Odeon in London‘s Leicester Square.

The show’s main cast and ~royal fam~, Vanessa KirbyClaire FoyBilly Jenkins and Matt Smith, launched the highly-anticipated new season, along with two very special guests, Prince and Lily, two very precious corgis.

Because it clearly wouldn’t be a royal affair without a couple of corgis and their fluffy butts, would it?

The pair strutted down the carpet, posed for photos, and had a good cuddle with the cast, because this show is absolutely about the REAL royal family – the one with four legs and a penchant to sploot wherever they damned well please.

Ahh, look at them. I don’t even know why they continued with the rest of the red carpet event. Who can even top this?

Clearly Billy Jenkins should know not to get in the way of the precious corg’s closeups with the photographers, here.

Now before we go home and watch the acting prowess of Lily and Prince, let us revisit this excellent video which pitches the idea of ‘what if The Crown, but dogs?’
