It’s clear who will inherit Elizabeth II’s royal corgi dogs

Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson will take care of Queen Elizabeth II’s corgi dogs after her death, the Guardian reports.

A spokesman for the Duke of York said he and Sarah will look after Muick and Sandy, two dogs the late monarch received as gifts.

In 2021, during the COVID pandemic, Prince Andrew gave his mother Muick the corgi and Fergus the dog. However, when Fergus died in May of that year, he was replaced by another corgi, Sandy. It was a gift from Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie for her official 95th birthday.

The Queen named the dorgito – a cross between a dachshund and a corgi. Fergus was named after Elizabeth II’s uncle, who was killed during the First World War, and Muick the corgi, pronounced Mick, is named after Loch Muick on the Balmoral Estate.

The Queen’s love of corgis throughout her life has been well documented, with Elizabeth II herself referring to them as “my family”.

Throughout her life, the Queen has owned over 30 corgis, mostly descendants of Susan, who was given to her by her father, George VI, for her 18th birthday.

The dogs slept in their own room specially created for them. Furnished with wicker baskets and cushions. It is believed that the dogs themselves were fed only raw rabbit and beef prepared by a gourmet chef.

Some of their names include: Whiskey, Sherry, Sugar, Mutt, Mint, Buzz, Geordie, Smokey, Dash, Smoke, Cisco, and Dipper.

The last corgi descended from Susan died in 2018.

Andrew, 62, is the third child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. He stepped down from his royal duties in 2020 after being accused of sexual abuse by Virginia Giuffre, allegations he has consistently denied.
