Queen Elizabeth II was famous for her love of dogs – and now her adorable dogs are getting a new home.

The Duke and Duchess of York – Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson – are taking corgis belonging to the late Queen, which Fergie “tied” during a dog walk, according to The Telegraph.

Fergie had chosen the two dogs – Mick and Fergus – which Andrew gave to his mother last March to make her happy when her husband Prince Philip was admitted to the hospital. While Fergus has since died, he was replaced by another royal corgi named Sandy.

Fergie, who still lives with the Duke despite her divorce from him in 1996, was invited to Balmoral Castle last summer for the first time in decades, where she bonded with Her Royal Highness, including dogs.

A source told The Telegraph: “The Duchess has been linked with Her Majesty on dog walks and horseback riding, and even after her divorce, she would continue her great friendship with Her Majesty by walking dogs in Frogmore and chatting.”

The Duchess fired a statement After the Queen’s death last week, she expressed her “sadness”.

“My heart is saddened by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. She has left behind an extraordinary legacy: the finest example of duty, service and resilience, and a constant presence as our Head of State for more than 70 years,” Twitter.

“For me, she was an incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in staying close to me even after my divorce,” continued. “I will miss her more than words can express.”

The Queen’s love of corgi dates back to 1933, when she specifically ordered a Pembroke Welsh corgi at just 7.

Queen Elizabeth II even created her own hybrid breed with her sister Princess Margaret called the “Dorgie” – a mix of Dachshund and Corgi.

The Queen was given her first corgi, Susan, at the age of 18 and has owned more than 30 of Susan’s offspring, as well as gifting a few puppies to family and friends.
