Sure, the Queen loves her corgis and Prince William and Princess Kate represent team Cocker Spaniel with family pup Lupo, but there’s another avid dog lover in the royal family – and she’s waving the rescue flag!

On Wednesday Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, brought her Jack Russell rescues, Beth and Bluebell, to a dog show held at Scotland’s Dumfries House, the 18th-century stately home that she and Charles helped save and restore.

Go-getter Beth, who was adopted at 12 weeks old in 2011, won first prize in the show’s agility contest.

Bluebell, the younger of the two dogs, didn t compete.

“She was just having fun,” a palace source tells PEOPLE. (You do you, Bluebell.)

Camilla adopted Beth in 2011 and Bluebell, then 4 months old, a year later from South London’s famous Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, which she has visits regularly.

Royal observers say it is unusual to spot the pups accompanying the royal couple on official engagements.

“It was nice to see the dogs out and about,” adds the source. “You never know they may pop up again.”
