BAZAAR.com previously reported that it’s Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, who will now handle the queen’s corgis following her death. The exes still live together at Royal Lodge in Windsor—Muick and Sandy’s latest home.

A source near the Duke of York told BAZAAR, “The corgis will return to live at Royal Lodge with The Duke and Duchess. It was The Duchess who found the puppies which were gifted to Her Majesty by The Duke.”

The source added, “The Duchess bonded with Her Majesty over dog walking and riding horses and even after her divorce, she would proceed her great friendship with Her Majesty by walking the dogs in Frogmore and chatting.”

Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, gifted the monarch dogs Muick and Fergus in spring 2021, when Prince Philip was hospitalized. Fergus sadly died at two months old, after which Andrew gifted his mother one other corgi, Sandy, on what would have been Philip’s one hundredth birthday.
