Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice are set to adopt the Queen’s corgis Muick and Sandy, meaning they will now be living at his residence Royal Lodge in Windsor.
Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson already have four dogs at their home – Jack, Cici, Teddy and Ginger.
The Duke of York gifted Sandy to his mother on what would have been Prince Philip’s 100th birthday.
Previously he and his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie had given her Muick to keep her company while the Duke of Edinburgh was in hospital.
TV star of ‘Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly’ Graeme Hall, also known as The Dogfather, has offered some advice for settling the corgis into their new home.
Mr Hall told The Mirror it was important that the animals had an easy transition.
He said: “Like humans, dogs grieve in different ways. They are all individual, after all.
“The fact is we cannot fully understand how grief feels for dogs – it’s not as though we can sit them down for a heart-to-heart over a coffee – but they are often withdrawn and less playful for a period of time.
“For new owners, my best advice is give them time to settle and create new routines that work for you.
