OK, so this might not get any headlines in all the stories about Queen Elizabeth II’s death and the royal transition to King Charles III. Certainly, the spotlight right now is on the Royal Family as well as all the dignitaries involved in the pageantry.
But many people would love to know what Prince William just released about this crucial time in England’s history.
He reassured people that the late queen’s corgis are in good hands.
In a video captured by Sky News, Prince William held the hand of a blond woman who asked about the dog’s well-being.
“I saw them the other day, that got me quite sad,” he said. “They are going to be looked after fine.”
He added that they’re “two very friendly corgis” and they have a “good home.”
“They’ll be looked after very well. Spoiled rotten, I’m sure,” he said in the clip.
It was reported by “TODAY” that the queen left behind a least three dogs at the time of her death. She had two corgis and one cocker spaniel. His corgi/dachshund mix named Candy reportedly died earlier this summer.
One source close to Prince Andrews revealed that the queen’s two corgis would move to his home in Windsor, and there is no word yet about what will happen to the cocker spaniel named Lissy.
It was Prince Andrew’s first wife, Sarah who bonded with the Queen over dog walking and horses. Even after their divorce, Sarah continued to have a friendship with the Queen and they walked dogs together.
Throughout her life, the Queen cared for more than 30 corgis, several labradors, cocker spaniels, and Candy, the dorgi. She was also known for breeding and racing horses.
So all the queen and dog lovers out there can rest easy, the royal canines are in good hands.
