• Queen Elizabeth II died in early September
  • Sarah Ferguson has been taking care of the corgis ever since
  • The Duchess sees this as a special honor

Sarah Ferguson sees this special gesture as a great honor bestowed upon her after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8 at the age of 96 after reigning for 70 years, bred ten generations of her favorite dog breed, popularly known as the corgi. 

Sarah Ferguson: It's a great honor for her

Sarah Ferguson and her ex-husband Prince Andrew took over caring for the dogs Sandy and Muick, after the death of the Queen. Sarah Ferguson shared an adorable picture of her and the dogs through her social media.  She captioned the photo with the words:

"The presents that keep giving."

She told The Telegraph, "It's a big honour. Sandy and Muick are national treasures and they have been taught well." The author of Most Intriguing Lady now has a total of seven dogs living under her roof, she explained that her five terriers "all balance out" the corgis.

She added: "The carpet moves as I move but I've got used to it now.“ Dr. Roger Mugford, the dog's former trainer, previously told Entertainment Tonight that the corgis probably feel the absence of the Queen.

"Dogs are very perceptive of changes in their owners. I'm sure they knew that Her Majesty was in decline and they will have missed her," said Sarah.

It's good to know that the dogs remained in the royal family and have found a nice home.
