UNITED KINGDOM – Their fate had so far remained unsolved. The corgis adored by Queen Elizabeth II, inseparable dogs from the sovereign who died on Thursday at the age of 96, have finally found a home: with her son Prince Andrew.

A spokesperson for Prince Andrew, the Queen’s third child, and his ex-wife, the Duchess of York Sarah, announced on Sunday 11 September that they will take care of Muick and Sandy, the queen’s two surviving corgis.

30 corgi during the reign of the queen

Andrew is often presented as ” the favorite son of Elizabeth II but resigned from the monarchy after allegations of sexual assault in the United States, which ended up paying millions of dollars.

It was already he who had given her these two puppies a few months apart. Muick and Sandy, the last proud representatives of the Queen’s 30-plus corgis, had brought her much comfort during the Covid pandemic, according to her Angela Kelly dresser.

Muick had joined the family in early 2021 to brighten up the monarch’s daily life 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 Prince Philip, husband of the queen. To replace him, Andrea and her daughters, princesses Beatrice and Eugenia, had given little Sandy to Elizabeth II on the occasion of her 95th official birthday.

Susan and the others

The Queen’s love for these little dogs dates back to at least 1944, when her parents gave her her first corgi, Susan, from whom most of her later dogs are descended, for her 18th birthday.

Elizabeth II took care of her dogs as much as possible, accompanying her on weekends to Windsor and living in her private apartments. She fed them whenever her schedule allowed and she also loved accompanying them.

His love of corgi was shown at his platinum jubilee celebrations which celebrated his 70 years of reign in June with a 70 corgi gathering at Balmoral and a corgi competition at Musselburgh Racecourse.
