Following Queen Elizabeth II’s death on September 8, her eldest son, Prince Charles, ascended to the throne, and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, ascended to the throne.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are elevated to the status of Prince and Princess of Wales.
Despite being stripped of military positions and royal patronages after sexually assaulting Virginia Giuffre, her disgraced son Prince Andrew received something.
According to The Sun, the Duke of York will look after the Queen’s three corgis.
The 96-year-old monarch was known for her love of dogs and had four corgis at her death.
Sandy and Muick, two Pembroke Welsh Corgis, Cindy, a Dachshund and Corgi mix, and Lissy, a Cocker Spaniel.
Whether Prince Andrew will look for Candy and Lissy or only Muick and Sandy has not been determined.
Prince Andrew has been attempting to re-enter the royal family’s good graces by leveraging his close friendship with Queen Elizabeth II, but nothing appears to have changed.
The source said:
“There is no new title and apparently no way back into the fold. Instead, he just gets the dogs.”
They went on to say that it was still a victory for Prince Andrew. He now has more time on his hands because he is no longer on the front lines of the royal family.
“He’s been spending most of it horse riding but will now be able to get out for walks with the dogs too.”
Though he is not a senior member of the royal family, Prince Andrew spoke to well-wishers as he strolled through throngs outside Balmoral Castle on his way back from a short prayer session organized in the Queen’s honor over the weekend.
He was among those who rushed to Scotland to be by Queen Elizabeth II’s side in her final hours.
According to the Associated Press, the Duke of York was asked how things were going, and he reportedly responded:
“We’ve been allowed one day. Now we start the process of handing her on.”
He also thanked the mourner for coming.
The floral tributes laid in memory of Queen Elizabeth II beside the River Dee bridge moved Prince Andrew and his daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Princess Anne and Prince Edward.
Before returning to Balmoral Castle, they all take a few moments to read the memorials and appreciate the flowers.
