Officials from Buckingham Palace say 13-year-old Monty - who was previously owned by the Queen Mother - passed away recently.

In the film Monty, along with two ofter Corgis, greeted actor Daniel Craig and performed tummy rolls before watching James Bond and the Queen take off in a helicopter.

The death leaves two corgis in the palace, Willow and Holly. Corgis have frequently been kept by royals since George VI bought his first Pembroke corgi in 1933.

George Osborne booed at Paralympics (VIDEO)


When George Osborne stepped out into the Olympic Stadium to present the medals for the Paralympics mens 400 meters T38 class he prompted the first mass boo of the games.


The Chancellor of the Exchequer initially looked shocked as the 80,000 capacity stadium booed and jeered him, but then managed to give a little fake smile.

Less upset by the not so odd news that Osborne is unpopular, was fellow medal presenter Chris Brownridge of BMW who smirked at the boos, and the grinning volunteers who were holding the medals.

And if that wasn't bad enough for George Osborne, even Gordon Brown got a mass cheer from the crowd when he presented medals at the Aquatic centre on the same evening.

It's said that the White House beers were created after Obama bought a home brewing kit for the kitchen and started making recipes from a local brew shop.

Writing online it's said that a couple of home brewers who work in the White House helped to amend the recipes and produce the first alcohol brewed or distilled on the White House grounds.

"Like many home brewers who add secret ingredients to make their beer unique, all of our brews have honey that we tapped from the first ever bee-hive on the South Lawn," said a spokesperson.
