Remarkably, the Queen owned over 30 corgis in her lifetime, having developed a love for the dog breed after receiving one for his 18th birthday present. Her most recent pair, Sandy and Muick (pronounced Mick), was given to her by Andrew and his daughters in 2021.

The Queen also had another dog named Candy, a Dorgi (a Dachshund and a Welsh Corgi mix). While many believe the pup will likely join the two in the care of the Duke and Duchess, it is also believed that Candy may be going to see a member of the Queen’s staff, according to Mirror.
