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

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

The pups, named Muick and Sandy, were walked by royal staffers outside the castle 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 he was seen giving his new pets a pat outside.

It was previously revealed that the disgraced royal and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, would take care of the corgis after the Queen died on Sept. 8 at age 96.

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

Ferguson and her ex-husband actually gifted the monarch two puppies — Muick and Fergus — in an attempt to lift her spirits while Prince Philip was in hospital last March.

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

The Queen’s love for the cattle-herding dog dates 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 whom were 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 the Queen’s last living corgis were doing well.

“I saw them the other day,” the Prince of Wales, 40, told a mourner over the weekend.

The Queen’s beloved fell pony, named Carlton Lima Emma, was also spotted on the grounds of Windsor Castle during Her Majesty’s final journey to St. George’s Chapel.

The longest-serving British monarch, who was also an avid horse rider, will be laid to rest next to her husband, Prince Philip.

Although the Queen’s middle son, Andrew, seemingly remained in his mother’s good graces, the Prince was previously stripped of his royal duties and titles over his friendship with deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

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

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

“Mother — of the nation, your devotion and personal service to our nation is unique and singular; your people show their love and respect in so many different ways and I know you are looking on honoring their respect,” he continued. 

Andrew concluded, “Mummy, your love for a son, your compassion, your care, your confidence I will treasure forever. I have found your knowledge and wisdom infinite, with no boundary or containment.”
