One thing the world knew about Queen Elizabeth II was that she had a deep love for her dogs. Her corgis, in particular, were considered by many to be just as iconic as she was. Prior to her passing, Queen Elizabeth II was the proud owner of many dogs. Naturally, many fans wonder what will happen to the furbabies after her passing. Will they live at the Crown Estate with her son Charles? Here’s what we know about the future plans for Queen Elizabeth II’s beloved dogs.

“She loves animals and she absolutely adores dogs. She always has done, they were her first love and they will be her last,” a royal biographer named Ingrid Seward told Newsweek prior to the Queen’s death.

So, the question remains: What will happen to her first and final love now that she’s passed away?

What will become of Queen Elizabeth II’s dogs?

At the time of her passing, Queen Elizabeth II was believed to have at least five dogs. This included two corgies named Sandy and Muick, a Dorgi named Candy, and two Cocker Spaniels. The world can only assume these dogs loved the Queen as much as she loved them and are mourning her passing with the rest of the world. So, what will become of her beloved canines following her death?

Officially, there has not been any type of plan released regarding what will happen to the late Queen’s furbabies. Ingrid Seward, however, did speculate to Newsweek that she believed the family would do the best they could to keep the furbabies within the Royal Family.

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.”

An author named Penny Junor of a book called All The Queen’s Corgis noted that Queen Elizabeth II had a lot of staff members who assisted in caring for her canines. So, the furbabies could be more comfortable living with someone from her staff as they were already close to the dogs and fond of them.

Care of the dogs has fallen sometimes to footmen but mostly to the Queen’s trusted dressmaker, assistant and right-hand woman, Angela Kelly; and to her equally trusted page of many years standing, Paul Whybrew, who was seen walking with the Queen and the dogs in the James Bond spoof. Both are fond of the dogs, have unfettered access to the Queen and are said to be very close to her.”

When did her love for Corgis start?

It was way back in 1933 when Queen Elizabeth II’s love for corgis was first discovered. On her 18th birthday, she was gifted Susan the corgi. All of the future royal corgis would later be bred from Susan’s bloodline. During her life, Queen Elizabeth II reportedly owned over 30 corgis as well as many other breeds of dogs and a few horses. Back in 2015, she made the decision to stop breeding corgis. She made the decision because she didn’t want to leave any corgis behind.
