His famous corgis adopted by his son Andrew

Their fate had so far remained unresolved. But the beloved corgis of the Queen Elizabeth IIwho died Thursday at the age of 96, have finally found a new home, that of her son Andrew. A spokeswoman for the prince announced on Sunday that they would be caring for Muick and Sandy, the two corgis who survived the queen. It was already him who had given her the two little puppies a few months apart. Muick and Sandy, the last proud representatives of the Queen’s more than 30 corgis, had brought her a lot of comfort during the pandemic, according to her dresser Angela Kelly.

Muick had joined the family at the beginning of 2021 to brighten up the daily life of the monarch then confined – like the rest of the country – to Windsor, with another puppy named Fergus. The latter unfortunately died a few weeks later, at the age of five months, shortly after the death of the prince philip, husband of the queen. To replace him, Andrew and his daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, had offered Elizabeth II little Sandy, on the occasion of his official 95th birthday.

His first corgi for his 18th birthday

The Queen’s love for these little dogs dates back at least to 1944, when her parents gave her her very first corgi, Susan, from whom most of her subsequent dogs were descended, for her 18th birthday. The Queen cared for her dogs as much as possible herself, who accompanied her on weekends to Windsor and lived in her private apartments. She fed them whenever her busy schedule allowed and also loved to walk them.

His love for corgis was showcased at his platinum jubilee festivities celebrating his 70 year reign in June with a gathering of 70 corgis at Balmoral and a corgis race at Musselburgh Racecourse.
