Queen Elizabeth’s beloved corgis were spotted waiting for her coffin to arrive at Windsor Castle.

The two dogs, named Sandy and Muick, were gifted to the late monarch by her son Prince Andrew.

The Duke of York and his ex-wife will take over the couple after the Queen’s death.

In early 2021, the Queen received two new puppies, a Dorgi and a Corgi, as a gift from Andrew while staying in Windsor during the lockdown.

The puppies kept the monarch busy while the Duke of Edinburgh was in hospital.

But the monarch was devastated when 5-month-old Fergus died just weeks later, in the wake of Philip’s death.

He was later replaced by a new corgi puppy, from Andrew and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie for her official 95th birthday, which the Queen named Sandy.

Most of the Queen’s corgis are descended from her first corgi, Susan, who was gifted to her on her 18th birthday in 1944.

The Queen took care of her own dogs as much as possible, and during the weekends she spent in Windsor, the corgis also came along and lived in her private apartments.

She fed them whenever her busy schedule allowed and also enjoyed walking the dogs.
