The Queen’s corgi appears for the final farewell as the funeral procession approaches

Queen Elizabeth’s last pets were brought in to bid farewell to the monarch as her coffin was taken to its final resting place at Windsor Castle.

A well-known animal lover, especially dogs and horses, Queen Emma’s corgi and pony waited for her funeral procession to pass by in a sweet gesture for the late monarch.

Queen Elizabeth II has long loved corgis and owned more than 30 during her tenure on the British throne.

At the time of her death on September 8, the Queen had four dogs, including two corgis named Muick and Sandy, a Dorgi called Candy and two Cocker Spaniels.

Muick and Sandy were brought to Windsor Castle to await the passage of the State hearse carrying the Queen’s coffin en route to the burial service at St George’s Chapel.

The young dogs waited patiently with palace staff outside, watching events closely.

They were also comforted by Prince Andrew who gifted the dogs to his mother and will look after them after she passes away.

Emma, ​​the Queen’s Fell pony, was also spotted waiting for her old friend, standing with groom and manager of Windsor Castle, Terry Pendry.

The 26-year-old pony was one of the Queen’s favorite horses and was spotted with Emma last month.

The welfare of the Queen’s pets was a top concern for people around the world in the hours after her passing, with many reacting to the emotional moment in Windsor.

“Corgi sad face before got me,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Another added: ‘Seeing corgis queens waiting for him makes me sick.’

And a third commented: ‘Sobbed openly over corgis and the Queen’s pony waiting for her at Windsor Castle.’

Queen Elizabeth fell in love with the corgi breed when she was still a princess, and her father, King George VI, gave her a breed for her 18th birthday.

Named Susan, the queen raised all of the beloved pets and all subsequent royal corgis descended from her.

The late queen also helped create a new breed of dog called the Dorgi, which is a combination of a Corgi and a Daschund. The Dorgi was created when one of the Queen’s Corgi bred with Princess Margaret’s daschund Pipkin to create a cross between the two.

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland and her state funeral was held at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday.

His coffin was then led in a procession past London landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, before being placed in the state hearse for the journey to Windsor Castle.

Thousands of people lined the streets of London and Windsor Road to bid farewell to Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

Queen Elizabeth was laid to rest alongside her father, mother and sister in the Royal Vault of George VI Chapel at Windsor Castle.
