Queen’s beloved corgis to be ‘looked after by Andrew’ following her death

Queen Elizabeth II's much-loved corgis may be moved out of Buckingham Palace to live with the Duke of York following Her Majesty's death on September 8.

A royal expert speculated that the newly-appointed King Charles was unlikely to take in his late mother's pets as he never took to the breed and is more of a fan of Jack Russells – currently owning two with the Queen Consort Camilla.

The royal couple's dogs, Bluebell and Beth, are expected to move to Buckingham Palace with the King and Queen, MyLondon reports.

As for the corgis, royal biographer Ingrid Seward suspects the Queen's beloved pets will move in with Prince Andrew at his £30million home, the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

Ingrid Seward told Newsweek before the news of Her Majesty's death was announced: "She loves animals and she absolutely adores dogs. She always has done, they were her first love and they will be her last.

"I imagine the dogs would be looked after by the family, probably Andrew [as] he's the one that gave them to her, they're quite young, the corgi and the dorgi [a cross between a dachshund and corgi]."

It is thought the Queen had five corgis at the time of her death, including Muick and Sandy the corgis, a dorgi named Candy, and two Cocker Spaniels at the time of her death.

The dog-loving monarch owned more than 30 dogs over the course of her life.

No official plan has been released for the dogs following the death of Her Majesty, despite Seward's speculation.

Royal author Howard Hodgson, who wrote 'Charles — The Man Who Will Be King', agreed that the corgis could be moved out of Buckingham Palace following the Queen's death, The Express reported earlier this year.

The Queen sadly died on September 8 at Balmoral Palace as her family rushed to be by her side in her final moments.

The new King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla stayed the night at the royal residence near Aberdeen before returning to London today, where one brazen royal fan even gave the incoming king a smooch as he arrived at Buckingham Palace.

The king is expected to make a speech later today.
