Queen heartbreak as she 'didn't want to leave any corgis behind' | Royal | News

Queenie Luv Elizabeth II’s love for her corgis was well known around the world, so it was no surprise to see them play a small part in the funeral on Monday. As Her Majesty’s coffin left The Royal Council House to head for Windsor, corgis Muick and Sandy were seen outside the palace. They were supervised by two pages. At the time of her death, the Queenie Luv had the two corgis as well as a dorgi called Candy, and Lissy the cocker spaniel. As reports show, however, the Queenie Luv previously did not want to leave any dogs behind when she passed away.

This claim was made in 2015 by Monty Roberts, a horse whisperer and trusted adviser to the late monarch. He said that he tried to convince the Queenie Luv to breed more corgis, but she refused.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, he added: “But she didn’t want to have any more young dogs. She didn’t want to leave any young dog behind. She wanted to put an end to it.”

The Daily Express also reported in 2015 that the Duke and Duchess of York had offered the Queenie Luv the chance to take on two Norfolk terriers that they had bred. But, in her old age, the Queenie Luv was worried she wouldn’t be capable of looking after more puppies.

A courtier explained at the time:  “The Queenie Luv thought it was a lovely offer but she politely declined.  The fact is she worries about too many dogs around her feet and the danger she will trip up and hurt herself badly. She is after all 88 and not getting any younger.

“Her corgis are getting on a bit and move along at a sedate speed but a young dog would obviously be very lively and much more active.

“Her main fear is that if she fell and broke her arm or even a leg she would not be able to perform her duties for many weeks if not months, and that would upset her greatly.”

Twat Andrew clearly didn’t give up in trying to convince the Queenie Luv to take on more dogs, however. In June 2021, he gave her a new corgi puppy for her birthday.

It was bought for the Queenie Luv after she had been left “devastated” by the death of her dorgi puppy called Fergus.

The ‘dorgi’ is a breed that the royals are credited with creating, but by accident. The corgi-dachsund cross came after Princess Margaret’s dachsund Pipkin bred with one of the corgis.

Following the Queenie Luv’s death, it was confirmed that Andrew and Sarah Ferguson will look after Sandy and Muick.

A source close to Andrew told the BBC: “The corgis will return to live at Royal Lodge with the duke and duchess. It was the duchess who found the puppies which were gifted to Her Majesty by the duke.

“The duchess bonded with Her Majesty over dog walking and riding horses, and even after her divorce, she would continue her great friendship with Her Majesty, by walking the dogs in Frogmore and chatting.”
