LONDON, UK: They say no human in the world can be show more loyalty to you than your pets, so it makes a lot of sense that everybody collectively felt sad for Queen Elizabeth II's corgis when she died. Questions later arose as to who would take care of the corgis now that the Queen had died.

It was then reported that the Queen's second son Prince Andrew and her former daughter-in-law Sarah Ferguson will inherit the two four-leggers. Muick and Sandy, the Queen's two most beloved and the last dogs she had who were at her side when she died, are now with Andrew and Ferguson. Ferguson, who also has five Norfolk terriers of her own, said that the pack has now gotten used to the corgis and they all get along just fine. The corgis are now at the sprawling country estate Royal Lodge, Windsor, where they are well taken care of.

The royal corgis await the cortege ahead of the Committal Service for Queen Elizabeth II held at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on September 19, 2022 in Windsor, England. The committal service at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, took place following the state funeral at Westminster Abbey. A private burial in The King George VI Memorial Chapel followed. Queen Elizabeth II died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8, 2022, and is succeeded by her eldest son, King Charles III.

Ferguson said that looking after the pups was “a big honor,” as per a report by The Telegraph. According to the publication, she also called the corgis “national treasures,” adding that they’d “been taught well.” “They all balance out. The carpet moves as I move but I’ve got used to it now,” she said.

That only makes sense considering the royal staff will by now have lots of experience with training the Queen's pets. She owned over 30 corgis in the past 70 years. The Queen was frequently photographed sharing tender moments with her pets, often during walks on the grounds. The Queen was also accompanied by Ferguson on many of these walks.

The Queen loved her corgis and ensured that they received the royal treatment, with her pets getting their own room to sleep in and meals that are made by a personal chef. It has been reported that at one point she owned nine corgis at the same time!

Considering how highly constant the corgis have been throughout the Queen's life, it is heartwarming to know that they gave her positivity during tough times as well. Andrew is said to have gifted The Queen two the corgis after her husband Prince Philip died, to help her get through the grief- Muick and Fergus. Upon Fergus' death, he was replaced with another corgi named Sandy.
