The Duchess of York was entrusted with the late Queen Elizabeth's dogs after her passing in 2022. 

She has continued to keep the keen public up to date with the corgis since. And her latest share on the Lorraine show in the UK could be the sweetest yet. 

Apparently the late Queen used to break up a Digestive biscuit to share with the dogs. 

“There’s now seven dogs, five Norfolks and two corgis. The Norfolks tend to be a little territorial with the corgis. The corgis are bigger so there’s a few punch-ups but they fine, they’re very fine. I remember what the Queen would do, she used to break a little Digestive biccy.” said the Duchess. 

Turns out, the dogs remember the distinct sound. 

“When I break it, they come running because they can remember the noise, her little hands… it was so sweet! So I sort of do that ritual and everyone gets cross with me for feeding the dogs too much!”

Sarah previously explained that whenever the canine companions are barking over what appears to be nothing, she believes it is because they have noticed the ghost of their former owner passing by.

She told People: “I always think that when they bark at nothing, and there’s no squirrels in sight, I believe it’s because the Queen is passing by.”
