The Queen’s final two corgis, Muick and Sandy, and her fell pony have played a role in her final farewell at Windsor.
Queen’s corgis and favourite pony play poignant role in Windsor farewell
The Queen’s beloved corgis and one of her favourite ponies played a poignant role in the final farewell to their devoted owner.
The neatly groomed young dogs – Muick and Sandy – one on a red lead and one on a blue one – were brought into the Windsor Castle quadrangle for the arrival of the Queen’s coffin, ahead of her committal service in St George’s Chapel.
Emma the Fell Pony, owned by the Queen for 26 years, was stood on the grass at the side of the Long Walk, on the approach to the castle.
It was a moving sight as the solitary horse stood in a gap between the hundreds of thousands of floral tributes, in the care of the Queen’s trusted stud groom and manager at Windsor Castle, Terry Pendry.
