Homeless hounds from Battersea’s Old Windsor centre gathered near Windsor Castle for a special street party to celebrate this weekend’s royal wedding.

Flags were flying and tails were wagging as the guests of honour enjoyed a photoshoot in the hopes that they might find their perfect forever homes.

One of the special guests was Tyson, a ten-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who’s been at the centre for over 80 days. He wore his best Union Jack bow tie for the occasion and was keen to show off his party tricks – including paw, sit, stay and roll over.

Also attending was Loki, a two-year-old Lurcher, who ran rings around the other guests, and Bertie, a three-year-old Greyhound, was took a more laidback approach. They were joined by Hope (main photo), a fun-loving eight-year-old mongrel with a bubbly nature that meant she was a firm favourite with all the guests.

Battersea Old Windsor’s Centre Manager Kaye Mughal said, “We’re so close to the action here at Battersea Old Windsor and we’re all very excited.

“Kensington Palace have been encouraging people to celebrate the wedding with street parties, and we didn’t want our dogs to miss out – so we decided to hold one for them while they wait to find their new family. We have so many dogs here who are looking for homes, and they’re hoping Meghan and Harry’s luck will rub off on them and help them find their soulmates.”
