Sarah Ferguson celebrated her 62nd birthday this Saturday, October 15

The queen’s dogs are doing wonderfully. After Elizabeth II died, two of her famous corgis, Muick and Sandy, were left to Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson who still live together. A logical choice because it was he who had offered these dogs to his mother in 2021, when the latter was facing health problems, then the death of her husband, prince Philip. And a few weeks after joining their new home, the two four-legged friends made a remarkable appearance on Sarah Ferguson’s Instagram account.
Indeed, this Saturday, October 15, the ex-step-daughter of Elizabeth II celebrated her 62 years. And for the occasion, the Duchess of York has published several photos of her giving big hugs to Sandy and Muick. A publication that delighted its subscribers who did not fail to leave a small comment. “The queen would be so happy”, “it’s great to see that you take such good care of them”, “I’m so happy that they are with you”, can we read for example.
Sarah Ferguson close to the royal family
If Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson divorced in 1996, the latter still remains very close to the royal family. “She was the most incredible mother-in-law and a friend,” she wrote on her Instagram account after the announcement of the sovereign’s death, before adding that she would be missed “more than words. cannot express it”.
Regarding corgis, they played a very important role in the life of Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8, at the age of 96. Indeed, for many years, she was surrounded by these short-legged little dogs. It was at the age of 18 that the monarch welcomed her first animal. It was then a female named Susan. And the 30 corgis that followed thereafter are all descendants of the latter. During her life, she even created a cross with a dachshund, called the “dorgi”.
Until the end, the corgis were present alongside the queen. They even participated in their own way at his funeral. Indeed, on September 19, Los of the Queen’s coffin procession from Westminster Abbey to Windsor Castle, Muick and Sandy, were present on the steps of Windsor Castle to bid farewell to their deceased mistress. Held on a leash by two assistants, the dogs wisely welcomed the remains of Elizabeth II before the burial ceremony.
