Your morning cereal will look especially sad once you know that Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis are probably, this very moment, chowing down on steak served in a fancy dish.

The Guardian previews an upcoming issue of Town & Country, which has a piece from Dr. Roger Mugford, a prominent animal psychologist who has apparently worked with the famous corgis. He reports:

“At feeding times, each dog had an individually designed menu, including an array of homeopathic and herbal remedies. Their food was served by a butler in an eclectic collection of battered silver and porcelain dishes,” he writes.

“As I watched, the Queen got the corgis to sit in a semi-circle around her, and then fed them one by one, in order of seniority. The others just sat and patiently waited their turn.”

Those meals involve steak, rabbit or chicken, according to the Guardian. But at least you don’t have to abide by seniority-based protocol at lunch.
