Prince Andrew to care for Queen's beloved corgis

Queen Elizabeth II's corgis are going to live with her son Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, the BBC has confirmed.

The Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York will take on Muick and Sandy - two young corgis that the prince and his daughters gave the Queen as a present in 2021.

The Queen also had a dorgi - a dachshund-corgi cross - named Candy, which she was pictured with in January.

Her Majesty owned more than 30 corgis during her lifetime.

So strong was the association that well-wishers almost immediately began asking who would adopt the dogs.

The Queen was an enthusiastic corgi breeder, and owned more than 30 corgis and dorgis over six decades. Many were descended from Susan - the dog she received as an 18th birthday present from her father in 1944.
