Queen Elizabeth II: Corgis awaited her at Windsor Castle

Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) was a great lover of animals, particularly fond of her corgis and horses. So it is not surprising that they played a role in the late Queen's state funeral on Monday (September 19). After the service in Westminster Abbey and the procession to Wellington Arch, Queen Elizabeth II began her final journey to Windsor Castle. The funeral procession led along the long avenue Long Walk to the inner courtyard of the palace.

The pony Emma stood guard along the Long Walk and said goodbye to his queen and mistress. An employee held the animal by the halter. In the summer, the Queen rode a horse.

In the courtyard of Windsor Castle, the two corgis Muick and Sandy were waiting for the monarch. Two bellboys in red tails kept the dogs on a leash.

It was announced last week that Prince Andrew (62) and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson (62) are taking care of the dogs after the Queen's death. A spokesman for the Queen's son confirmed this to the "Guardian". The Queen got the two four-legged friends from Andrew and his family last year.

Prince Andrew gave his mother Muick the corgi and Fergus, a dorgi, to his mother in 2021. After Fergus died, another corgi named Sandy took his place - a gift from Andrew's daughters, Princesses Beatrice, 34, and Eugenie, 32, for the Queen's 95th birthday.

The Queen's great love for Corgis was well known. She is said to have once said that "my corgis are family". Over the course of her life, she has owned more than 30 of the dogs, mostly descended from her first corgi lady, Susan. The dog was a present for her 18th birthday.
