Queen’s funeral: her corgis and her pony watch her pass


Queen Elizabeth II’s black pony Emma watched the monarch’s funeral procession pass through the grounds of Windsor Castle, where he was held on a leash by a groomsman.

The Queen’s two corgis, Sandy and Muick, were also brought in for the arrival of the coffin at the castle, where Elizabeth was to be buried later in the day after a large state funeral.

Leashed by palace staff, the dogs waited patiently in the castle forecourt.

The Queen, who died this month aged 96 after 70 years on the throne, always loved corgis and horses and loved horse riding throughout her life. Her second son, Prince Andrew, will now look after the dogs.
