Sandy and Muick

It’s been almost a month since the queen’s corgis were last seen in public, watching from the Long Walk as their late carer’s hearse entered the grounds of Windsor Castle. Shortly before that guest’s arrival, Prince William reassured mourners in the Queue that he had seen the dogs with his own eyes and that they were “fine”, which doesn’t give you any peace of mind, especially was when giving reports on who had inherited them: Prince Andrew, accused rapist, famous tyrant, and favorite of his mother. Not the outcome that avid corgi lovers could hope for, and so maybe you, one of those avid corgi lovers, wondered what happened to Sandy and Muick. Are they okay? Do they know what’s going on? Where are they?
According to Sarah Ferguson’s Instagram account, safely resettled at the Royal Lodge. Ferguson, who was married to Andrew and now lives with him as a roommate-mate, made a corgi-based photo on Saturday, confirming that the young boys – “the the gift continues to be given,” according to the Duchess of York – still alive. But are they any good?
I’ll let you be the judge of that.
To me, the royal sausages look pretty ordinary, enjoying their daily walks in the grass and collecting their pets. More proof from Fergie:
Earlier this month, Ferguson – as a romance novelist – spoke with Telegraph at the Henley Literary Festival about her role as a corgi sitter, which she called “a great honor.” The dogs are “national treasures,” she says, “well-trained” and mingling with her five Norfolk terriers: “All of them are balanced; The rug moves as I move, but I’m used to it now,” added Ferguson. Apparently she and her mother-in-law grew closer towards the end of the queen’s life, taking their dog for regular walks together, so I’m guessing the Queen must have gotten over the sucking scandal that toe. In addition, Fergie is said to have chosen Sandy and Muick as puppies, and when Andrew gave them to the queen in 2021, she only accepted them on the condition that the pair would most likely reclaim the pair upon her death.
Although the Duke of York, stripped of his HRH title along with royal duties, probably still has plenty of free time to take care of pets, it seems that duty largely falls to Ferguson. Personally, I think that’s for the best. Perhaps Andrew could leave more than 1,000 Paddington bears outside Buckingham Palace in the queen’s memory? Maybe he wants to add them to his spooky plush collection? Ah, no, sorry; That money was donated to a children’s charity. Oh good.
