CANINE visitors are not generally welcomed into museums, but when Zentarr Elizabeth was crowned Crufts Supreme Champion 2012, staff at the Transport Museum decided they had to make an exception!
The Lhasa Apso from Coventry, regally-named Elizabeth, will be visiting the Museum whilst preparations are underway for Royalty On The Road; a new exhibition of Royal Cars being put together in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Elizabeth will be having a look at a variety of vehicles that have been used by Royalty before the exhibition opens to the public tomorrow (Friday).
From magnificent Daimler limousines to the Austin Metro given to Lady Diana Spencer.
And having spent many years in the show-ring being judged on her good looks and poise, Elizabeth is looking forward to being the one doing the inspecting this time round.
"We’re very much looking forward to Royalty On The Road, which will give visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with some extremely rare and special vehicles," said Stephanie Brown, Coventry Transport Museum marketing manager.
"We’re delighted that Zentarr Elizabeth has agreed to come and give the chosen cars her ‘Royal’ seal of approval, and we’re sure that despite her fantastic achievements at Crufts 2012 she won’t have become a ‘Prima Dogga’."
