Royal Family fans ‘broken’ as Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis wait to see Her Majesty’s final journey home – Kent Live

As the Queen’s state funeral continues, her ever-faithful corgis have been spotted waiting to welcome Her Majesty on her final journey back to Windsor Castle. Snaps have shown two pooches being walked inside Windsor Castle as they wait for the coffin to arrive.

In her lifetime, Her Majesty owned more than 30 corgis and dachshund-corgi mixes. For her Golden Jubilee, a new coin depicting the Queen alongside a corgi was issued.

As reported by the Telegraph, the late monarch chose to stop taking on corgis in the mid-2010s as she did not want to leave any dog behind when she died. She has been survived by two pooches: Muick and Sandy.

With the two dogs now being photographed waiting for the Queen’s coffin to arrive at its final destination, mourners have flocked to Twitter to share the emotional moment. One social media user, @ClaireBear11223 penned: “Seeing The Queen’s dogs waiting for her has broken me.

“I wonder if they know she’s never coming home.” Another, @ekr1989 , commented: “You know I good, I hadn’t cried or teared up watching Queen Elizabeth’s funeral but it was when they showed the corgis that I started to bawl.”

Some Twitter users compared the emotional moment to Prince Phillip’s funeral where a carriage horse loved by Phillip was given a sugar lump. @toriaa_h penned: “I’ve not been too bad really all day but this? Nah. This got me.”

@DanLit111 commented: “They must be really sad as they haven’t seen their Queen for a week and a bit now. They must be wondering where she is.”

Prince William assured members of the public earlier in the week that Sandy and Muick are being well cared for and will be spoilt rotten. The pair are to be taken care of by the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson.

Prince William told mourners: “I saw them the other day, that got me quite sad. They are going to be looked after fine.”

He continued: “They are two very friendly corgis, so they’ve got a good home. They’ll be looked after very well. Spoiled rotten, I’m sure.”
