Who Will Take Care Of Queen Elizabeth II Corgis

Queen Elizabeth II's corgis will end up in the home of the Duke and Duchess of York, Andrew, and Sarah, a source close to the Duke has revealed.

Although they have been divorced since 1996, the ducal couple still lives at Royal Lodge, Windsor estate.

Queen Elizabeth II and the Duchess of York share the same passions, namely a love of dogs and horses, which made the two very close.

According to CNN, Sarah continued her friendship with Her Royal Highness, with whom she walked her dogs on the Windsor estate, even after her divorce from Prince Andrew.

The most recent dogs Queen Elizabeth owned were two corgis, Muick and Sandy, a dorgi named Candy, and a cocker spaniel, Lissy.

From 1933 to 2018, for 85 years, Queen Elizabeth II always had at least one corgi dog with her, so as a breed it became a symbol of the British monarchy.

Why Does Queen Elizabeth Love Corgis

Queen Elizabeth II was just 7 years old when her father, the Duke of York, bought a corgi named Dookie for his daughters Elizabeth and Margaret in 1933. 11 years later, on her 18th birthday, Elizabeth II was given a Pembroke Welsh corgi puppy named Susan, who she became so attached to that she took her on her honeymoon in 1947.

It's worth noting that Queen Elizabeth's corgis enjoyed extraordinary living conditions at Buckingham Palace. They had their room, the Corgi Room, where they slept in wicker baskets. Their bedding was changed daily and they were supervised by the Queen herself.

According to Reader's Digest, Queen Elizabeth had a soft spot for corgis because of their "untamed energy and spirit".

Characteristics Of Corgi Dogs

The corgi is one of the most popular breeds of herding dogs and is among the most agreeable breeds of small dogs. The specimens of this breed have a strong, affectionate character and are extremely lively.

Standing up to 30 cm tall and weighing almost 13 kg, a male Corgi is a large dog with a small body. Short but strong legs, muscular legs, and a deep chest equip him for a hard day's work. With a long, short body, the Corgi is surprisingly fast and agile. They can have red, brown, or black fur, with or without white stripes.

Corgi is an intelligent and sensitive dog who enjoys playing with his family and responds well to training. As dogs developed for herding, they are fearless and independent. They are alert watchdogs with keen senses and large dog bark.

Families who own a Corgi can enjoy a loyal and loving pet. It's no wonder they became Queen Elizabeth II's favorite breed of dog.
