Lily dies aged 7

Lily in 2010, soon after arriving at her new home.

Lily, Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff, has died aged 7.

Lily was born in 2010 to Rose, a pet bullmastiff of the Imperial Family who also served as Mascot.

She was sold to a family living in the British county of Surrey, and was visited by members of the Imperial Family in 2010 and 2011. Upon the death of Edd in April last year, Lily was appointed the Order of the Bullmastiff’s new Mascot.

Lily’s death was announced earlier this evening by her owners. She had been experiencing health issues since late last year.

Lily was the last surviving member of the Carothan kennel of bullmastiffs, and her death has left the position of Mascot vacant for the first time since its creation by Terry I in January 2009. If no bullmastiff can be found, there is provision for a dog of another breed to be appointed Honorary Mascot.

Jonathan I has sent a message of condolence to Lily’s owners, expressing sympathy at her death and thanking them for giving her a loving home.

Edd dies aged 8

Edd, beloved pet bullmastiff of the Imperial Family, has died aged 8 years old.

Edd passed away yesterday in the Imperial Residence after having a stroke.

Born in December 2008 and bought as a pet by the then Emperor Terry I in March 2009, Edd lived in the Imperial Residence with his distant relative Rose, whom he succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff – practically the ceremonial embodiment of Austenasia’s national animal – upon her death in April 2014.

With a superb showing pedigree, Edd was shown at ten dog shows between 2009 and 2012, and qualified to be shown at Crufts in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Edd has been succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff by Lily, Rose’s daughter who lives with a family in Surrey.

Edd will be cremated, and his ashes buried in Wrythe Pet Cemetery in the coming weeks.

Emperor and Princess Consort announce engagement upon return from Seville

The Emperor and Princess Consort in Maria Luisa Park immediately after getting engaged.

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I and his consort Princess Hannah of Wildflower Meadows arrived back in the country yesterday after a week-long holiday in the Spanish city of Seville.

Whilst there, on Monday 5th the couple became engaged to be married whilst in Maria Luisa Park.

The date of the wedding has yet to be announced, but will not be until after mid-2019, when the Princess completes her university course.

The Princess Consort was crowned Princess of Wildflower Meadows by the Emperor on 12 May earlier this year upon the creation of a principality for her.

On 11 November 2011, Hannah met the then Crown Prince Jonathan at a charity shop while lost in Carshalton. The two did not maintain contact, but met again on 10 September 2015. After several weeks of close friendship they announced the start of a romantic relationship on 5 November.

Jonathan I and Princess Hannah spent eight days in Seville, during which they toured major sites of the city such as the Cathedral and royal palace.

Whilst there, the imperial couple also met Sir Dominic Connolly, the Austenasian Ambassador to Spain, whom the Emperor knighted into the Order of the Bullmastiff in recognition of Connolly’s diplomatic service and in celebration of the imperial engagement.
