Loss that hit Queen “exceptionally”

Queen Elizabeth II has owned and loved more than 30 corgis since her family received their first companion in 1933, when the then princess was just 7 years old.

The late monarch’s newest pair of corgis, Sandy and Muick, were by his side when she died at Balmoral Castle on 8 September. The Queen cause of death was released this week, revealing that she died of old age.

Royal expert Hilary Fordwich said Fox News Digital that Elizabeth was “exceptionally touched by the loss” of her corgi, Willow, in 2018. Willow was a direct descendant of her family’s first corgi, Susan, and was given to her on her 18th birthday.

“In 2018, she was exceptionally touched by the loss of her beloved Willow, who had become her most devoted companion due to being a direct descendant of Susan, her first corgi, who was an 18-year-old gift then. that she was still Princess Elizabeth. “, said Fordwich.

Many of the Queen’s corgis she owned throughout her life were direct descendants of Susan.

Fordwich then shared why Willow and Elizabeth had such a close bond.

“Willow’s close bond with the Queen was due to her being the last in a long line to return to her parents. Her closeness to her parents should never be underestimated as she now rests at peace with them and her sister, the last Princess Margaret,” she said.

“Complete with her father, King George VI and her mother, the beloved Queen Mother, they were called ‘we four’. Her husband Prince Philip, who died in April 2021, is now interned with them.

According to the royal expert, some of Elizabeth’s greatest passions were dogs and horses. Fordwich shared that it “wasn’t surprising” that her two corgis, as well as her fallen pony, were involved in her funeral procession “given that she planned almost every aspect of her funeral, in plans known as London Bridge”.

Fordwich’s favorite story involving the Queen’s beloved corgis was when she wrote letters under her corgis’ pseudonym. She wrote of her dogs to her squire’s dogs. A squire is a person who assumes the role of an officer, royal servant or chief of staff.

“Alexander Armstrong, the BBC presenter, said years ago seeing letters she had written herself,” Fordwich recalled. “He said his letters from his corgis were ‘hilarious, a perfect illustration of the Queen’s wicked sense of humour.’ He added that he remembered ‘holding my stomach, screaming with laughter because they were wickedly funny.”

Kinsey Schofield, royal expert and host of the To Di For Daily podcast, says Fox News Digital that the queen was very involved with all of her puppies.

“As accurately described in The Crown, the Queen was very active with her pack and enjoyed feeding them herself. When I say ‘pack’ I mean pack. the time was 13!

Schofield shared the feelings of the late Princess Diana about the Queen’s corgis.

“Shocked by the visual, Princess Diana would call them ‘the moving carpet,'” she said.

“Over the years, an ‘accident’ by one of the corgis inside the palace was a typical Tuesday. A quick cleaning and everything went well. The corgis ran the show. New staff members would hide treats or sausages in their pockets to win corgis around the Queen,” Schofield continued.

The royal expert explained that she was very protective of her corgis and worried about their future. Schofield noted that Elizabeth did not want to have another corgi after Willow died, as she did not want her pets to survive her.

“Despite her wish, Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice found Muick and Sandy for the Queen. Andrew feared for his father’s health and thought the idea of ​​puppies might lift the Queen’s spirits,’ she said.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William shared that Sandy and Muick would be “very well looked after. Spoiled rotten, I’m sure,” in images obtained by Sky News.

The two corgis would be supported by Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

When Queen Elizabeth died, fans held a royal corgi parade at Buckingham Palace in her honor, scheduled for October 9. Parade organizer Agatha Crerer-Gilbert has revealed she plans to honor the Queen with a special corgi event.
