A few weeks after Prince Philip’s disappearance and the death of one of his dogs, Queen Elizabeth II received a new puppy from her son and granddaughters. The young Corgi thus joins his fellows Muick and Candy.
The family of Corgis and Queen Elizabeth II’s Corgis Crusaders is growing again. The British sovereign has, in fact, recently welcomed another puppy, as People reported on Monday, June 14.
The little dog is a Welsh Corgi Pembroke. It was given on the occasion of what would have been the 100th birthday of her husband, Prince Philip, on 10 June. The young canine was reportedly given to Queen Elizabeth II by her son, Prince Andrew , as well as the latter’s daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York .
A long tradition of Corgis
Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Commonwealth, which had blown its 95th candle on April 21 has always been surrounded by dogs and more specifically Corgis, a race that she is particularly fond of.
She had lost one of them last month, however; Fergus , a Dachshund / Welsh Corgi Pembroke cross, died just weeks after the Duke of Edinburgh’s disappearance. Fergus was one of 2 puppies brought to him in March. The other responds to the name of Muick .
Previously, at the end of December 2020, Queen Elizabeth II had to say goodbye to another of her four-legged companions; Vulcan , who had been by his side since 2007, had also gone peacefully. 4 years earlier, it was his brother Holly who died at the age of 13.
Before the arrival of Muick and, more recently, the new Welsh Corgi Pembroke, Candy was therefore the only survivor of the royal pack. She will now have company.
