Queen mourns last corgi
THE Queen has been left heartbroken after the death of her last corgi.
Willow, 14, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday. The dog had a cancer-related illness and the Queen did not want her to suffer further.
The death brings to an end a remarkable history between the Queen and corgis dating back more than 80 years. Wil- low was the 14th generation descended from Susan, a dog gifted to the then Princess Elizabeth on her 18th birthday.
But her heritage dates back even further, to 1933, when the Queen’s father George VI introduced a corgi, Dookie, into the family. The Queen was still feeding Willow until the weekend, when the dog’s condition worsened.
