At Home portrays Queen Elizabeth II relaxing with two of her favourite dogs at Windsor Castle, the 900 year old castle and royal residence that she regards very much as her home. The figurine is inspired by a photograph taken in 1962 when the Queen was celebrating ten years of being a monarch, but she was also a mother of three - her fourth child Prince Edward, now the Earl of Wessex was not born until 1964. Wearing a striking yellow dress with matching jacket styled with 1960s flair, Queen Elizabeth II sits on a carved stone seat playing with two of her Corgis - she is stretching to pat one of her dogs whilst the other looks adoringly up to her mistress's face. The Queen's first Corgi, Susan, was given to her as an 18th birthday present in 1944, by her father, and all her subsequent corgis are Susan's descendants. They travel with the Queen to her different residences and she likes to be involved in their care as much as possible.
