Queens family have a plan in place for much-loved Corgis, says expert

They are as emblematic of British Royalty as the crown, small yapping icons immortalised on everything from china plates to tea towels.

So as we mourn Her Majesty this morning, Royal fans have been flooding chat boards to speculate what will befall the Queen's most beloved pets – her Corgis.

Luckily there is no need to fear – the animal's new homes will have already been decided.

Royal correspondent Victoria Arbiter says that while there’s been no official announcement the royals will have something in the works.

She told The Independent: “We can only speculate on plans for the corgis – nothing is left to chance with the royal family."

She described the Queen's family as, like Her Majesty, dog lovers.

She said: “The royal family is a family of dog lovers, though none are particularly fond of corgis. The Queen was definitely the lord and master and had a wonderful way with them. They were known to nip ankles of the royal family.”

Victoria added: “All of the Queen’s children would welcome them with open arms,” and if not a family member then they would likely be adopted by a trusted member of staff.

Throughout her long reign Queen Elizabeth II always owned at least one Corgi.

The passion started when she was given her first in 1933 when her father, the then Duke of York, bought a corgi named Dookie for his daughters Elizabeth and Margaret.

On her 18th birthday the late Queen was gifted a corgi named Susan, from whom many of her later dogs were descended.

The last descendant of Susan,Willow, died in 2018 , however the monarch was not left without canine companionship.

It was in 2018 that the queen made the decision to stop breeding puppies as she became concerned that she may injure herself by tripping on one.

Following Willow’s death the Queen still had corgi Whisper, who died later that year, and two dorgis Vulcan and Candy, who were product of one of the Queen’s corgis mating with one of the dachshunds of her sister, Princess Margaret.

Vulcan has since passed away, but Candy has survived to outlive her owner.

In 2021, the Queen was gifted corgi puppies, named Muick and Fergus, who kept her company when her late husbandPrince Philipwas hospitalised.

Sadly Fergus, the pup, tragically died just two months later of a heart defect. The Queen was then gifted a new corgi by son Prince Andrew and granddaughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. It remains unclear what she named this new pup.

And earlier this year the Queen became the owner of a new dog, but this time opted for a different breed.

Instead opting foran award-winning cocker spaniel , affectionately named Lissy.
