Sarah Ferguson, 64, looks like she should be titled the Duchess of Dogs based on her new Instagram post.

After Queen Elizabeth II’s passing, the monarch’s beloved corgis fell under the care of her son, Prince Andrew, and his ex-wife, the Duchess of York. Now, Ferguson has given her followers a life update, which included a fall-themed snap that featured two of the late queen's pups, Sandy and Muick (which you can view here).

The photo, which was snapped by Hello! magazine, was posted by the duchess on Thanksgiving day. In her caption, Ferguson wrote, “Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends! We are enjoying the cool, November weather. It is a perfect time to take a stroll, sip a cup of tea… or perhaps, to write something cosy, mysterious, and new. This author is sharpening her pen this autumn and feeling thankful for all of the little things. What are you thankful for this festive season?”

Seems from her caption that the duchess is working on a new novel, and her followers are surely excited to hear this major update, given the impressive sales of Ferguson's other novels, like A Most Intriguing Lady and Her Heart for a Compass.

Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022, it was revealed by CNN that her cuddly pooches had been taken in by Ferguson and Prince Andrew. This made sense, given that Muick and Sandy were gifts to the late queen from her son and granddaughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Since then, the Duchess of York has given updates to her followers on the status of the dogs. Back in September, she wrote, “As we mourn a year on, we also celebrate the wonderful times we shared with Her Late Majesty the Queen. She entrusted me with the care of her corgis Sandy and Muick and I am delighted to say they are thriving.”

Meanwhile, in July of this year, Ferguson shared a slideshow of nature shots to her page, with a caption that said, “I took all 7 doggies yesterday to where Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth used to walk them. It was wonderful to have a moment to remember.”

We live for these corgi check-ins, Sarah.
