Queen's Corgis Await The Arrival Of Their Late Owner's Coffin

LONDON - Two of the Queen's beloved corgis are waiting for the arrival of Elizabeth II's coffin.

Throughout her life, the monarch was regularly photographed with one of her many Welsh corgis at her feet.

The Queen’s passion for corgis dated back to her childhood, when she fell in love with her father King George VI’s dog, Dookie. In 1944, on her 18th birthday, she was given a Pembroke Welsh corgi puppy named Susan. Such was her attachment to Susan, she reportedly took her on her honeymoon in 1947. Susan died in January 1959.

Her surviving corgis will now live with the Duke and Duchess of York, Andrew and Sarah, a source close to the Duke of York told CNN last week.
