IN SHORT: Queen Elizabeth’s two remaining corgis will live with the duke and duchess of York on the Windsor estate. The dogs won’t be buried with the queen.
Elizabeth Windsor, born 21 April 1926, was crowned as queen in June 1953 at the age of 26. She died on 8 September 2022, aged 96. She had been queen for 70 years.

But will Elizabeth’s corgis be buried alive with her? We checked.
A lifelong love of corgis
According to the BBC, the fascination with the breed started in 1933 when Elizabeth, aged seven, wanted a corgi because a friend had one. She was given her first corgi, Susan, on her 18th birthday. Susan lived for almost 15 years, and Elizabeth went on to own 30 of the dog’s descendants.
The BBC has developed a family tree of Elizabeth’s corgis – and dorgis, a mix of dachshund and corgi.
At her death, Elizabeth owned two corgis, a cocker spaniel and a dorgi.
It has not yet been decided who will take care of the cocker spaniel and dorgi.
There is no evidence that the corgis will be buried with the queen.
