Muick and Sandy, the corgis of the Queen, are waiting to welcome Her Majesty in the front courtyard of Windsor Castle. Prince William greeted British citizens and informed one woman that the late queen’s corgis are in excellent care while paying a surprise visit to the line of mourners lining up to pay their respects to the coffin at Westminster.
In a video shot by Sky News, William was seen holding the hand of a blonde woman who asked for the welfare of the dogs.
“I recently saw them, and it made me really sad,” he stated. “They will be well taken care of.”
They are “two extremely sociable corgis,” he said, adding they live in a “wonderful home.”
“They’ll receive excellent care. I’m sure they’re spoiled rotten “In the video, he stated.
As previously reported by TODAY, the queen died leaving behind four dogs: Candy, a corgi/dashchund mix, two corgis, and a cocker spaniel.
The two corgis would be moving to Prince Andrew, the third child of the queen, to his residence in Windsor, according to a source close to him on Sunday, September 11. What will happen to the other two dogs is yet unknown.
According to reports, the queen stopped taking in dogs in the middle of the decade because she didn’t want to pass away and leave any puppies behind. She did receive a few pets as gifts, though, including one from Andrew, throughout the years. The source claims that Sarah, Duchess of York, Andrew’s ex-wife, was instrumental in acquiring the late monarch the dog.
Despite divorcing in 1996, Andrew and Sarah stayed in touch. The insider claimed that even after they broke up, Sarah and the queen remained close “through dog walking and riding horses.”
Even after her divorce, the insider told NBC News, “she would continue her strong connection with the Queen by walking the dogs in Frogmore and conversing.”
Queen Elizabeth II is renowned for having raised more than 30 corgis, many labradors, cocker spaniels, and Candy the dorgi during her lifetime. She was renowned for both breeding and horse racing.
Another Sky News video from Prince Williams’ Saturday encounter with the late queen’s admirers shows him addressing the crowd that his grandmother “never dreamed” there would be such a large wait to view her casket.
Long queues of admirers formed outside Westminster Hall as the queen’s corpse was brought to rest. The wait was officially closed on Sunday night, just in time for the monarch’s royal funeral, according to the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport. The most recent wait time estimate was eight hours.
