What will become of the queen’s dogs?

Queen Elizabeth II leaves behind not only a large family, but also four dogs. Bite attacks didn’t stop her love of corgis, which has lasted for decades. However, the hype surrounding the four-legged friends caused problems for the British park authorities after the death of the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II was a big dog fan all her life. The Queen was particularly taken with corgis. Most recently, she had four four-legged friends: two corgis named Sandy and Muick, a corgi dachshund (Dorgi) named Candy, and a cocker spaniel named Lissy. What happens to the animals after they die? The royal family has not yet responded. Prince Andrew will likely adopt at least some of the animals, court expert and biographer Ingrid Seward told Newsweek magazine. Andrew had given it to his mother himself a few years ago.

Another possibility, according to journalist and royal expert Penny Junor, would be that the dogs are left to the old royal staff, who have looked after the animals for decades. For example, Angela Kelly, the seamstress and right-hand man of the Queen, or Paul Whybrew, a close associate, are suitable for this job. “Both love the dogs,” Junor told Newsweek, they had unimpeded access to the Queen and would have been very close to her.

The Queen’s love for corgis, officially Welsh Corgi Cardigan, goes back to Susan, a dog her parents gave her for her 18th birthday. Susan was even allowed to honeymoon. The queen started breeding her. After her death in 1959, Elizabeth is said to have personally designed Susan’s headstone, which stands in the grounds of the Sandringham Estate. Her last offspring, Willow, died in 2018.

Not everyone around her shared her enthusiasm for corgis: The breed is known for being confident with a tendency to bite, as many staff members of the Queen’s palaces have painfully experienced over the years. Many guests were able to sing a song about the aggressiveness of the animals. The queen was also bitten in the hand. But that didn’t stop her from keeping more than 30 corgis over the course of her life.

Corgis, stuffed animals and sandwiches with jam

Corgis Monty, Willow and Holly became famous in a skit the Queen filmed with James Bond actor Daniel Craig to mark the opening of the 2012 London Olympics. The officer, slightly irritated but determined, walks past the animals that often scurry around his legs. As he takes off in the helicopter with the supposed queen, he looks down at the dogs that must be left behind with a 007 Schadenfreude look.

The hype surrounding the four-legged Queen companions has now resulted in a momentous official announcement. People who want to pay tribute to the late monarch with souvenirs for their palaces should forgo putting out teddy bears, corgi stuffed animals and wrapped jam sandwiches. Only flowers, without plastic protection, may be placed. The park manager Royal Parks must dispose of the material after the funeral services.

“In the interest of sustainability, we ask visitors to use only organic or compostable material,” the agency says on its website. “Unfortunately, gifts and artifacts cannot be accepted and the public is asked not to take them into the parks.” Candles were also taboo, the park authority writes. In London, all flowers must be placed in the dedicated memorial area in Green Park near Buckingham Palace.

With the teddy bears and jam sandwiches, the mourners responded to a video of the Queen having tea with the fairytale character Paddington Bear this year before her throne anniversary. She had said mischievously that, like the bear, she always carried a jam sandwich with her, which she promptly removed from her handbag.
