Here's why Prince Edward's kids do not have official prince and princess titles

Over her lifetime the late monarch owned more than 30 corgis, with each one descended from her first, Susan, an 18th birthday present from her father, George VI.

They became synonymous with her glorious 70-year reign and frequently featured in portraits, official photographs, coins and on bone china.

The Queen was even credited with introducing the dorgi after a brief – and entirely unexpected – encounter between her corgi Tiny and Princess Margaret's dachshund Pipkin.

Her Majesty suffered heartache with the death of her oldest dorgi shortly before she passed away aged 96 on September 8.

Candy — a cross between a dachshund and a corgi – died soon after she arrived in the Scottish Highlands at the beginning of summer.

The Queen was reportedly “distraught” at the loss of Candy, who was 18 years old and remained by her side in Balmoral for her final visit before her death on September 8 aged 96.

In February, as Her Majesty modestly marked the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne, Candy trotted into the Oak Room at Windsor Castle to join her.

It comes as…

  • The Queen’s coffin has arrived at St George’s Chapel to be laid to rest with Prince Philip
  • Princess Charlotte cried after The Queen’s emotional funeral in a heartbreaking moment
  • King Charles led his family in an outpouring of grief today at his mother's funeral
  • Meghan Markle was teary-eyed as she watched the Queen's coffin be placed into a hearse
  • Princess Kate paid a touching tribute, wearing Her Majesty's pearl choker

Following her passing, the Queen's two surviving corgis have been left to Prince Andrew, The Sun revealed.

A source revealed the shamed Duke of York would now take in the Muick and Sandy at his 30-bedroom Royal Lodge home in Windsor.

Muick, pronounced Mick, is named after Loch Muick on the Balmoral estate.

The insider added: "It's fascinating – Charles is now King, Camilla is Queen Consort, William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales

"As for Andrew, there is no new title and apparently no way back into the fold. Instead he just gets the dogs."

Prince William this week reassured a grieving royal fan in London as they were concerned about what would happen to the Queen's Corgis.

The newly-appointed Prince and Princess of Wales shook hands with fans and spoke to mourners who were queuing to see the Queen lying-in-state.

In the sweet footage, the father-of-three shook hands with a blonde woman on the other side of the barrier.

The royal fan asked Prince William how the dogs were doing as she was concerned that they would be very upset after their owner's passing.

Still clasping her hand Prince William reassured her: "I saw them the other day. They’re being looked after fine, they’re two very friendly corgis."

He then joked that they were being looked after so well that they were perhaps being spoilt.
