What Happens to Queen Elizabeth II’s Beloved Royal Corgis Now That She Has Passed?
Queen Elizabeth II was an avid animal lover, and her affection for her pet corgi dogs was well documented throughout her reign.
Queen Elizabeth II is being laid to rest today - her coffin is being transferred to Windsor Castle in a royal procession, and will be placed in a vault next to her late husband Prince Philip, who she was wed to for 73 years. Queen Elizabeth II passed away at her residence in Balmoral, Scotland. She was 96 years old, and reigned as the monarch of the United Kingdom and its commonwealth nations for 70 years.
The funeral ceremony is attended by the likes of King Charles, Queen Consort Camila, and her grandchildren, including Prince William and Prince Harry. Also in attendance were her beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy.
Her affection for her corgis (specifically Pembroke Welsh Corgis) was not contained to herself - in fact, search queries for what will happen to her corgis was trending on search engines throughout the day.
It is reported that they will be returned to Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, who originally gifted Muick and Sandy as puppies to the Queen last year.
These were not the Queen’s only corgis - in fact she owned over 30 of them throughout her rule of the United Kingdom, one of them most famous being Susan, who was gifted to her by her father King George IV on her 18th birthday in 1944. Susan was her companion when her father passed and when she ascended the throne in 1952, and all of her Pembroke Welsh Corgis are reported to have descended from her.
When asked about Sandy and Muick, Prince William stated to a mourner: "They are two very friendly corgis, so they've got a good home. They'll be looked after very well. Spoiled rotten, I'm sure."
