Prince Andrew will take care of the Queen’s beloved corgis following Her Majesty’s passing, according to the BBC

The Duke of York and his ex-wife Sarah, the Duchess of York, will take Muick and Sandy after giving them to his mother back in 2021.

He will also take Candy, the Queen’s dorgi – a dachshund-corgi cross.

A source told the BBC: “The corgis will return to live at Royal Lodge with the Duke and Duchess. It was the duchess who found the puppies which were gifted to Her Majesty by the Duke.”

They said that the Duchess ‘bonded’ with the Queen, even after divorcing the Duke.

The Royal Lodge, which is in the grounds of Windsor Estate, is the home of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife.

However, not everyone is happy with the decision. After hearing the news, people took to Twitter and reacted.

One joked: “I see Prince Andrew is still in the doghouse… He’s been given the job of looking after the Queen’s corgis.”

“I wouldn’t trust Andrew with my dog. At all!” added another.

“Let’s face it, he won’t be doing anything for the dogs,” a third remarked. “Can’t even open his own curtains.”

A fourth wrote: “Somehow the poor corgi dogs were left to Prince Andrew and his ex-wife. I feel so sorry for the dogs. What a shame.”

“Those pups deserve better,” another remarked.

According to The Express, Her Majesty stopped breeding corgis and replacing her dogs in 2015.

Her horse trainer and longtime advisor, Monty Roberts, said the Queen ‘did not want to leave any behind’.

However, she did receive animals as gifts and following the death of her husband, Prince Philip, she was gifted Muick and Fergus.

Devastatingly, Fergus passed away and this resulted in Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, gifting her another puppy named Sandy.

Newsweek also reported that at some point last year, the Queen also acquired a four-year-old cocker spaniel named Lissy.

Royal expert Ingrid Seward spoke to the news outlet and said how Her Majesty’s ‘first’ and ‘last’ love was the breed of dog.

She told Newsweek at the time: “She loves animals and she absolutely adores dogs. She always has done, they were her first love and they will be her last.”
