Queen Elizabeth II was known for her love of corgis – and now her beloved dogs are finding a new home.
The Duke and Duchess of York – Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson – are taking the corpses of the late Queen, who was fake “bonded” during a dog walk, according to The Telegraph.
Fergie had chosen two dogs — Muick and Fergus — which Andrew gifted to her mother last March when her husband, Prince Philip, was hospitalized. While Fergus has since passed away, he was replaced with another royal Corgi named Sandy.
Fergie, who still lives with the Duke despite being divorced since 1996, was invited to Balmoral Castle last summer for the first time in decades, where she bonded with Her Royal Highnesses, including dogs.
A source told The Telegraph: “The Duchess bonded with Her Majesty for dog walking and riding horses, and even after her divorce, she continued her great friendship with Her Majesty by walking the dogs and chatting at Frogmore. Will keep.”
Duchess released a Statement Expressing how “heartbroken” she was after the Queen’s death last week.
“I am heartbroken by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. She leaves behind an extraordinary legacy: the most splendid example of duty and service and perseverance, and her continued steady presence as our Head of State for more than 70 years,” Fergie wrote Twitter,
“To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed in being close to me even after my divorce.” Continuous, “I can express him more than words.”
The Queen’s love for corgis dates back to 1933, when she specifically requested a Pembroke Welsh corgi when she was just 7 years old.

Queen Elizabeth II also created her own hybrid with her sister Princess Margaret, called a “Dorgi” – a dachshund and corgi mix.
The Queen was given her first Corgi, Susan, at the age of 18 and has gifted some puppies to family and friends, along with being the owner of more than 30 offspring of Susan.
