Queen Elizabeth II’s Corgis Wait to See Her at Windsor Castle

  • Photos show Queen Elizabeth’s last two corgis awaiting her arrival at Windsor Castle.
  • Her coffin is currently on its final journey from London to Windsor Castle for her burial.
  • Prince Andrew will inherit the dogs, which he gave to the Queen as a gift when they were puppies.

Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis waited for her arrival at Windsor Castle, where she will be buried Monday afternoon.

The Queen’s coffin made its final journey from London to Windsor following her funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday morning.

At Windsor Castle, there will be a Committal Service at St George’s Chapel at 4 pm BST, which the Dean of Windsor will preside over.

The royal family and past and present members of the Queen’s households will attend the Commital Service, which will be intimately compared to her State Funeral at Westminster Abbey, which was attended by 2,000 people.

The Queen will then be buried at an even smaller ceremony attended only by the closest members of the royal family.

As the hearse made its way to the chapel, the Queen’s two living corgis were brought outside so they could see her Majesty one final time.

The Queen’s love of her corgis was well-documented; Over the course of her life, she had more than 30 corgis, most of which were descendants of Susan, a corgi she was gifted for her 18th birthday in 1944, as the BBC reported.

Her corgis often appeared in photos and videos with her, and in 2016, the Queen posed with her dogs for the cover of Vanity Fair.

Her majesty stopped breeding the dogs in 2015 so they would not outlive her, although she had four dogs at the time of her death: two corgis, a dorgi, and a cocker spaniel, according to NPR.

The Queen’s remaining two corgis, Muick and Sandy, will be adopted by her son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, following her death, according to the BBC. Andrew gifted the Queen these corgis when they were puppies.

It is unclear where the Queen’s remaining dogs, Candy, a dorgi, and Lissy, a cocker spaniel, will live now.
