Now this is a scene that you don’t see very often. British Royal News says that Queen Elizabeth’s corgis were given a chance to say goodbye at Windsor and right before the funeral procession. Her beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy, were seen outside of Windsor Castle on Monday and ahead of the Committal Service for Queen Elizabeth. Here’s what you need to know.
According to reports, pups Muick and Sandy were allowed to wait for the arrival of the Queen’s coffin at Windsor for the Committal Service. The Queen’s love of her dogs was well known to all, they even appeared alongside her and James Bond actor Daniel Craig in a short film made for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.

The corgis were used to break the ice with a plethora of foreign dignitaries the Queen entertained during her 70-year reign. Until the end they provided the Queen companionship and loyalty, helping entertain her while Prince Philip was in hospital.
Sandy and Muick will now go to live with Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson following the Queen’s death but were permitted one last glimpse of the Queen as her coffin drove by inside the Windsor Castle grounds. Muick joined the royal family at the start of 2021 along with a so-called “dorgi”, a cross between a corgi and a dachshund, called Fergus.
Fergus died after just five months and was later replaced with Sandy, a new corgi puppy from Andrew and his daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, for the queen’s official 95th birthday. The corgi gifts came in the same year that Prince Andrew stepped back from his public duties due to the scandal over his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The little, mainly sandy-colored corgi dogs with pointy ears were a busy presence in the queen’s court, following her from room to room in Buckingham Palace and featuring in official photos. They were even given a starring role in the spoof James Bond clip filmed with the queen for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. She stopped raising corgis in her 90s so as not to leave them orphaned after her death, and the 2018 demise of Willow, the last corgi she reared herself, served as a reminder of the monarch’s own mortality.
