The Duke and Duchess of York will look after Queen Elizabeth II’s two corgis, according to media reports.

Muick and Sandy are two young corgis that Prince Andrew, one of the Queen’s sons, and his daughters gave to her in 2021. The gift was meant to boost her spirits after the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

Elizabeth herself died Thursday at Balmoral.

“The corgis will come back to live at the Royal Lodge [on the Windsor Estate] with the Duke and Duchess,” a source close to Andrew told the BBC.

NPR has yet to independently confirm and will update once we do.

It’s still unclear who will be watching over Elizabeth’s other two dogs – a cocker spaniel named Lissy and a dachshund corgi hybrid named Candy. Some royal experts have previously speculated that the dogs could be separated and given to various family members.

Elizabeth’s affinity for corgis dates back to her youth, when she received a corgi named Susan for her 18th birthday. The Queen owned over 30 dogs in her lifetime, the majority of which were Pembroke Welsh Corgis.
