Royal Family members with a criminal record – a ‘very unfortunate episode’

The court also ordered Anne to keep her English bull terrier, named Dotty, on a lead in public, plus to organise training for the animal.

In the one-hour hearing, Anne – who emphasised that she did not want preferential treatment – admitted to having a dog dangerously out of control but that Dotty, then three, was a good-natured animal “lacking in malice”.

Two boys were injured after Anne’s dog bit them, and relatives of the youngsters called for the terrier to be put down.

But District Judge Penelope Hewitt accepted Anne and her husband Timothy Laurence are experienced dog owners.
