It's official: Queen Elizabeth's beloved corgis, Muick and Sandy, have found a new home.

Following the passing of Her Majesty, a source close to the Duke of York confirmed with CNN that her pups will be taken in by Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. They'll live at the duke and duchess's current residence, the Royal Lodge in Windsor.

The news comes as no surprise, given that Muick and Sandy were gifts from Prince Andrew and his two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. Also, per The Telegraph, a close source revealed that Ferguson and the queen had developed a special bond. They said, “The Duchess bonded with Her Majesty over dog walking and riding horses and, even after her divorce, she would continue her great friendship with Her Majesty, by walking the dogs in Frogmore and chatting.”

The queen's fondness of this dog breed has been well documented throughout her life. In fact, she owned over 30 corgis—many of which were descendants of the first corgi she owned back in 1944. And Willow—the last descendant of her original corgi—appeared with her in a James Bond sketch that she recorded for 2012 London Olympics.

As for Muick and Sandy, they were a source of "constant joy" for the queen, according to her dressmaker, Angela Kelly. In her book, The Other Side of the Coin, she wrote, "I was worried they would get under The Queen's feet, but they have turned out to be a godsend. They are beautiful and great fun, and the queen often takes long walks with them in Home Park."

We'll be on the lookout for sightings of the duke and duchess with these adorable pups.
