The dog and Muick, now a bonded pair, brought millions of people to tears Sept. 19 when footage was broadcast of them being brought out to await the arrival of the Queen’s coffin at Windsor, her final resting place, following a state funeral. Andrew was also photographed petting the pups.
Two days earlier, her grandson Prince William, now second-in-line to the British throne, told a worried fan waiting in line to view his grandmother’s coffin lying in state at Westminster Palace in London that he had recently seen Muick and Sandy and that the dogs were “going to be looked after fine.”
The Prince of Wales added, “They are two very friendly corgis so they’ve got a good home. They’ll be looked after very well, spoilt rotten I’m sure.”
In addition to Muick and Sandy, the Queen was also survived by a cocker spaniel, Lissy. Multiple reports have said that it is believed that the pet, who won the 2022 Kennel Club Cocker Spaniel Championship, currently lives with her trainer.
In addition, the Queen cared for a dorgi named Candy for 18 years prior to her death. Multiple outlets reported after her passing that the dog died this past summer. The royal family has not commented on the reports.
