Queen Elizabeth’s Corgis Will Stay in the Family

For the legions of dog lovers who have wondered what will happen to Queen Elizabeth’s two remaining corgis, there is clarity: One of the Queen’s sons will keep the dogs in the family.

The Duke of York, aka Prince Andrew, and his former wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, will look after the two corgis, a spokesman for the duke said on Sunday.

It was the Duchess who found the dogs when they were puppies, and the Duke who gave them to the Queen as gifts, the spokesperson said by email.

The corgis, named Muick and Sandy, take up residence at Royal Lodge in Windsor, the sprawling estate Prince Andrew shares with his ex-wife.

The Queen had more than 30 dogs during her 70-year reign, but her love of corgis in particular is well documented. The dogs were such a fixture at her side or at her feet that Princess Diana, mother of William and Harry, famously called them a “moving carpet.”

What will happen to the Queen’s other dogs, Candy, a Dorgi — a cross between a Dachshund and a Corgi — and Lissy, a Cocker Spaniel, remains unclear.

Ms Ferguson maintained a bond with the monarch after she split from the prince in 1996, and they often rode horses and walked with the dogs, the spokesperson said.

After the Queen died in Scotland, the Duchess said in a message on Twitter: “She was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me by staying close to me even after my divorce.”

She added: “I will miss her more than words can express.”
