Oh my goodness! What excitement at MDD HQ when they were invited by patron HRH Camilla Duchess of Cornwall to see HRH the Queen in June and to do one of their famous demos.

  • These dogs are able to sniff out Parkinson's disease, and bladder and prostate cancer amongst other illnesses. They have been proven to be up to 93% accurate - far far more precise than most other forms of detection.

The Queen has been told how dogs are so far ahead of humans when it comes to detecting cancer, scientists are developing a digital dog’s nose.

If successful, she was told, it will save lives.

Dogs which sniff out cancers are trained by the charity Medical Detection Dogs.

And in the Royal Mews, the stables at the back of Buckingham Palace earlier, the Queen watched Kizzy – a cocker spaniel – discover which of the eight urine samples placed in front of her came from a human with bladder cancer.

See the ITV coverage here and read all about it on the Prince of Wales' website here!

I am a Very proud ambassador!
