The Queen's corgis are dead

The Queen's last remaining corgi dies leaving her devastated

In this official photograph released by Buckingham Palace to mark her 90th birthday, Queen Elizabeth II is seen walking in the private grounds of Windsor Castle on steps at the rear of the East Terrace and East Garden with four of her dogs: clockwise from top left Willow (corgi), Vulcan (dorgie), Candy (dorgie) and Holly (corgi).

The corgi, Willow, was nearly 15 years old when she was euthanased at the royal residence. The Queen is said to be heartbroken.

An insider told the publication the Queen is especially heart broken over the death of Willow.

She started breeding them a few years later and all her dogs are descended from Susan, the dog she was given on her 18th birthday.

Her Majesty still has two dogs, Vulcan and Candy, which are informally known as "dorgis" - a cross-breed between a dachshund and a corgi introduced to the royal household when Princess Margaret's daschund Pipkin mated with one of the Queen's dogs.

Willow was 14 years old.

.

"A wonderful legacy", Attenborough said.

Willow was the last surviving corgi to have appeared alongside the Queen and actor Daniel Craig in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony James Bond sketch.

She has owned more than 30 corgis and going for walks with the dogs was a hallmark of the royal routine.

She also adopted Whisper a year ago, after the death of his owner, a former Sandringham gamekeeper.

At one point the Queen reportedly had 13 corgis. Monty died a couple of months after the sketch was filmed, and Holly was put down in 2016.

In 2015, the Queen chose to stop breeding the dogs, reportedly because of fears she might trip over them and be hurt. She also reportedly didn't want to leave any behind when she dies.

Although the dog was still being exercised and fed until the weekend, her condition began worsening, and so a vet was called to the castle.

A courtier at the palace was quoted as saying Willow represented "a significant thread running through the Queen's life", and "to think the last one has now gone is something of a milestone".
