Sarah Ferguson is convinced that the ghost of Queen Elizabeth II is haunting her corgis.
The Duchess of York took over the care of the former monarch's infamous corgis after her passing, and quickly noticed some spooky behaviour from the pooches.
Fergie detailed how the affectionately-named Sandy and Muick appear to "bark at nothing", believing it to actually be the ghost of her mother-in-law.

The pooches were given to the Duchess of York as a gift following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, late last year, with the dogs more than a handful for Ferguson.
In a recent interview with People, Ferguson said: "They are national icons, so every time they run chasing a squirrel, I panic.
"But they're total joys, and I always think that when they bark at nothing, and there's no squirrels in sight, I believe it's because the Queen is passing by."
The Duchess of York further claimed that the two pooches found her "very funny", but that it was also a "big honour" to be tasked with looking after the "national treasure".
Along with Sandy and Muick are Ferguson's five Norfolk terriers, all under the same roof together in the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

Daily Star had previously reported the extremely close relationship the Queen shared with her corgis, often opting to own one or two at a time throughout her reign.
Muick and Sandy were said to be "with her in the room" at the time of her passing at Balmoral in September last year.
The dog's had previously been spotted lying outside of Windsor Castle around the time of the funeral, but it was confirmed by Buckingham Palace that the pooches had been with the Queen in her final moments.
Her Majesty had sadly lost her eldest corgi, Candy, just a few months before she passed.
