This clip of King Charles III getting distracted by a corgi will melt your heart

Queen Elizabeth II's love of corgis was no secret, and throughout her life she had dozens of the adorable dog breed. It's a passion that has seemingly passed on to her children too, with Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson adopting the late monarch's pups, and King Charles III struggling to hide his excitement at seeing a corgi on his latest royal outing.

To recap, yesterday His Majesty visited Gray's Inn in London where he met judges, barristers, students and royal fans. But, during the royal visit, the King became distracted by an onlooker's corgi, who was patiently waiting to meet the royal.

The sweet moment was, of course, captured on film and quickly shared to social media where it attracted a lot of attention.

"KCIII must have thought it was mummy that came with one of her corgis," one royal fan tweeted, with another writing: "Corgis for Charles."

Like his mother, Charles is an avid dog lover and he and Queen Consort Camilla have two of their own – a pair of Jack Russell terriers named Bluebell and Beth. The royal couple adopted the pups in 2017 from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, making them the first rescue dogs to take up residence at Buckingham Palace.

In a previous interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, Camilla said: "The nice thing about dogs is you can sit them down, you could have a nice long conversation, you could be cross, you could be sad and they just sit looking at you wagging their tail."

Truly melts your heart, doesn't it!?
