The Pembroke Welsh corgis will now be under the care of the Duke and Duchess of York, Andrew and Sarah, CNN reports.

The pair, who divorced in 1996, both reside at the Royal Lodge on the Windsor estate. Following the Duke and Duchess’s split, Her Majesty reportedly remained close with Sarah and often walked their dogs at the Windsor Estate.

The Queen is also reported to have left behind Candy, an older, mixed breed ‘dorgi’—a corgi/Dachshund mix—and a cocker spaniel, Lissy.

Her Majesty owned more than 30 corgis and dorgis during her reign, The Royal Household reports. Most of the dogs were descended from her first corgi, Susan, who was gifted to her on her 18th birthday in 1944.
