The Queen has been gifted a Corgi puppy to mark her official birthday by her “favorite” son, Prince Andrew.
The generous gift comes just months after the Queen was given 2 new dogs by Andrew to keep her company while the late Duke of Edinburgh recovered from surgery.
He brought her a dachshund-corgi cross named Fergus and a corgi named Muick.
Fergus was said to be named after the Queens maternal uncle Fergus Bowes-Lyon, who died in France during World War I.
While Muick, pronounced Mick, was said to be named after Loch Muick, a lake on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.
But sadly, Fergus died last month leaving the Queen “devastated.”
Fergus reportedly died from heart problems which he had suffered from birth.
Prince Andrew and his daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, gifted the Queen her new 6-week-old puppy last week on what would have been Prince Philip’s 100th birthday, The Sun reports.
It also came just days before the Queens official ninety-fifth birthday celebrated on June 12th.
A Windsor Castle source reportedly told The Sun: “The Queen has had a rough time and she is absolutely delighted to have a new corgi.”
“She was distraught when Fergus died suddenly, but this new dog will be the perfect company for Muick going forward.”
The Queen has owned more than thirty corgis during her reign so it’s safe to say she’s a major dog lover!
