Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis attend the funeral with Prince Andrew

Queen Elizabeth’s two beloved corgis were comforted by their new owner, Prince Andrew, at Windsor Castle after the late monarch’s funeral.

The puppies, named Muick and Sandy, were walked by royal staff outside the palace on Monday as they awaited the arrival of Her Majesty’s hearse.

The Duke of York, 62, attended his mother’s funeral service at Westminster Abbey, before being seen giving his new pets a pat outside.

It was previously revealed that the disgraced royal and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, would look after the corgis after the Queen died on September 8, aged 96.

Queen Elizabeth is believed to have “tied up” her ex-daughter-in-law Fergie on dog walks over the years, the Telegraph reported.

Ferguson and her ex-husband actually gave the monarch two puppies – Muick and Fergus – in a bid to lift her spirits while Prince Philip was in hospital last March.

Sadly, Philip died in April 2021, followed by Fergus a few months later.

The expectant mother gave the paparazzi a shock by posting photos…

The Queen’s love of the cattle herding dogs goes as far back as 1933 when a then 7-year-old princess asked for a Pembroke Welsh corgi.

She owned more than 30 corgis throughout her life, many of which descended from a dog named Susan, who was given to her as an 18th birthday present by her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, in 1944.

Her grandson Prince William has since confirmed that the Queen’s last living corgis were fine.

“I saw them the other day,” the Prince of Wales, 40, told mourners at the weekend.

Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who was also a keen horse rider, will be laid to rest next to her husband, Prince Philip.

Although the Queen’s middle son, Andrew, apparently remained in his mother’s good graces, the prince was previously stripped of his royal duties and titles due to his friendship with late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew, whose older brother King Charles III is now the British sovereign, paid tribute to his mother in a statement on 18 September.

“Dear mother, mother, Your Majesty, three in one. Your Majesty, it has been an honor and a privilege to serve you,” the embattled royal began.

“Mother – to the nation, your devotion and personal service to our nation is unique and unparalleled; your people show their love and respect in so many different ways, and I know you look to honor their respect,” he continued.

Andrew concluded: “Mom, your love for a son, your compassion, your care, your confidence I will cherish forever. I have found your knowledge and wisdom infinite, without limits or containment.”
