Plot Queen Elizabeth II dies

Two corgis owned by Queen Elizabeth II will live with her son Prince Andrew strong>and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson in Windsor. This is reported by the Daily Mail with reference to the representative of the prince.

The fate of the rest of the queen's dogs of other breeds has not yet been decided.

What is known about the two remaining corgis of Elizabeth II?

Corgi named Mick and Sandy have been living with Queen Elizabeth II since 2021. Then, during the quarantine period, Prince Andrew gave his mother two dogs — corgi and dorgi (a cross between a corgi and a dachshund). The Queen named the dorgi Fergus in honor of her uncle, who died during the First World War, and the corgi — Meek, after the lake in Balmoral Manor.

Fergus passed away in May 2021 after only five months with the royal family. Later, Elizabeth II got a new pet — Corgi Sandy. It was a gift from Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princesses Beatriceand Eugenie, for the monarch's 95th birthday.

“I was worried that they [the new dogs — approx. ed.] will fall under the feet of the queen, but they turned out to be a real success. They are beautiful and very cheerful, and the Queen often takes long walks with them in Home Park. Angela Kelly, the queen's costume designer, said earlier.

The new home for the royal corgis did not come as a surprise to the British media. Journalists guessed that it was Prince Andrew who would look after the pets of his late mother. He was reported to have walked dogs with Princess Beatrice in the months leading up to the Queen's death.

What will happen to the Queen's other dogs?

It is not yet known what fate awaits the dorgi named Candy. The pet is expected to join Mick and Sandy at Windsor or be handed over to one of the staff.

It is also not reported where the spaniel Lissy will live. While the current champion of the national competition is with his cynologist. A decision on her future is expected to be made by KingCharles IIIin the coming weeks.

How did the Queen's corgis live?

Elizabeth II's dogs lived in royal conditions. They had their own rooms, as well as a chef who prepared beef, chicken, rabbit, liver, cabbage and rice dishes.

The behavior of the pets was not always diligent. The Queen's husbandPrince Philip“hated” yapping of dogs. And in 1989, a corgi had to call an animal behavior expert to wean them from the habit of biting members of the royal family.

In 1991, Elizabeth II tried to stop a fight between her pets, but one of the dogs bit the mistress, after causing the doctors to put three stitches on her left arm.
