What first came to mind with the news: the affectionate old Paul McCartney tribute, and the fact that the Queen had done more to raise the visibility of Corgi World than anybody; with NWH's own Wolffie & Al running a close 2nd.

She was also a highly respected/successful breeder and owner of race horses. The Queen viewing/inspecting the stallion, Mr. Prospector, Claiborne Farms, Kentucky (1984)
She was an amazing woman. The legacy of her "job description", however, is.........complicated.

CNN says they will be cared for by Royal Staff then adopted by Prince Andrew and Princess Anne who already have some. I do not believe Liz would want them to be killed she only added older Corgis.

Not a good start. The Inkwell Controversy. A king cannot move desk items.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

What I have read says they are going to family. She didn't have so many anymore. I read in the past that she kept the Corgi pack around her and they fended off people when she didn't want to be bothered. It said it took 3 weeks for Andrew to make his way through the pack to tell the queen about his upcoming divorce.
