The Lady July 17, 2015 00:00

In this issue of The Lady : Dear Readers, In the gardens and living rooms of Britain, a crisis is unfolding. For, slowly but surely, we are becoming a nation without corgis. Yes, Her Majesty the Queen – doubtless the world’s most famous owner – has two, Willow and Holly, but last year only 274 Pembroke Welsh Corgis were registered with the Kennel Club. Is it too late to turn the tide? Melonie Clarke investigates on page 20. We also take a magical peek at the remarkable, priceless treasures of the Waddesdon Bequest, recently rehoused in a new gallery at the British Museum; ask our resident agony aunt to solve a very romantic conundrum: how to find love later in life; and begin an exclusive series on the Jane Plan diet, in which nutritionist Jane Michell explains how to stop being a naughty nibbler. Meanwhile, we celebrate that most ladylike of television presenters, Fiona Bruce, tackle the thorny issue of interfering with a friend’s garden and have an audience with one of the greatest British cartoonists to put pen to paper, Ralph Steadman – illustrated by our very own cartoonist extraordinaire, Gary. So without further ado, cuddle up to your corgi (if you have one) and enjoy a good read. Very best wishes, Matt Warren, Editor
