  • The Queen's last remaining corgi dies leaving her devastated

This truly is the end of an era, as Queen Elizabeth has owned more than 30 corgis throughout her life; at one point, she had 13 at once. Since then the Queen would breed a new generation of corgis from Susan.

Willow's death marks the end of the line as, per The Telegraph, the queen has stopped breeding her corgis.

According to The Daily Mail, Willow, who was nearly 15 years old, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle on Sunday to prevent further suffering from a cancer-related illness.

The last of Queen Elizabeth's beloved pet corgis has sadly passed away.

"She didn't want to have any more young dogs", Roberts told Vanity Fair.

The queen does still own Vulcan and Candy, "dorgis", a dachshund-corgi mix that resulted from Princess Margaret's dachshund mating with one of Elizabeth's corgis. Nonetheless, she has reportedly taken the loss of Willow very hard.

Of all of the Queen's corgis, Willow was also one of the most known, appearing with another corgi Holly in the James Bond sketch for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. Moreover, in 2017, the Queen kindly agreed to adopt a corgi named Whisper after the death of his owner, who happened to be a former Sandringham gamekeeper.

It is understood the dog has been buried in the castle grounds and in time there will be a headstone bearing the pet's name and the words "a faithful companion of the Queen".

The 91-year-old made the heartbreaking decision to have Willow put down on Sunday afternoon after her condition worsened.

The pup had been suffering from a number of painful complications related to old age, and it was decided the animal should be put down.

Elizabeth's love affair with the breed reportedly began in 1933 when her father, Albert Frederick Arthur George (who would be crowned George VI three years later), brought home a corgi named Dookie, according to the Washington Post's William Booth.
