the deceased Queen isabel II she was known for her fondness for animalsbut a particular breed of short-legged dog became the iconic companion of the monarch with the record-setting reign of 70 years.

At the time of his death, Isabel owned four dogs: two Pembroke Welsh corgis named Muick and Sandy, an older dorgi named Candy and a cocker spaniel named Lissy, though she’s actually bred 10 generations of corgis since being given a Pembroke corgi named Susan at the age of 18.

And after his death on September 8, many wondered: Who will inherit Queen Elizabeth’s corgis and if they know their master just died?

I doubt they feel so hurtbecause they were used to being cared for by other members of the household and of course by Prince Andrew, who was present at the time of death and who is now taking over their care,” manager Roger Mugford said during a chat with ETOnline.

While Roger added: “I’m sure they knew Her Majesty was on the decline and that they miss her.”

“It was so lovely that, in his later years, he had two little corgis and other dogs around him. There is no doubt that, at any stage of our life, but particularly when we feel that we are slipping, it is incredible to pet and be loved by an uncritical admirer such as a dog. That is a great consolation,” he noted.

As Roger Mugford put it, the queen’s last two corgis will live with her son, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, who still live together, as they and their daughters gave them to the monarch last year when the Duke of Edinburgh was hospitalized.

Yes, Elizabeth was the queen and she had important constitutional duties. But her relatives talk about how she was happier living her life as a peasant, enjoying the company of her animals.

so maybe it was fitting that his dogs were present during his funeral.
