Corgi owners are saying their dogs have been ‘acting differently’ since the Queen died

Corgi owners have taken to social media to reveal that their pets have been ‘acting differently’ following Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

The poor pooches haven’t been coping too well since the late Monarch's passing, according to people in the Facebook group UK Corgi Club

From ‘laying on their laps’ to not understanding the difference between ‘mourning’ and ‘morning’ these corgis have been having a torrid time.

One concerned owner wrote: “Has anyone else’s corgi acting differently now that Our Majesty has passed?

“Ours has been culled up on our laps ever since the news broke which is unusual. It’s almost like they know, God bless the Queen.”

Meanwhile, another member of the group claimed that while their corgis were ‘upset’ by the Queen’s death they are looking towards the future.

She wrote: “Mine are upset about the Queen's passing but excited about the new Prince and Princess of Wales.


"Also we're very relieved that the Yorks are looking after the Queen's corgis as we were going to offer.”

The pet owner believed the whole period was a confusing time for the dogs, especially when the term ‘mourning’ could be confused for their morning meal.

She added: “It's confusing for all corgis, it's difficult enough for them having to understand English rather than Welsh and now mourning doesn't even mean breakfast time.”

One other owner had the perfect way to clear up the confusion for the pups.


The suggested: “When speaking of the Queen's passing to corgis, use Welsh to avoid confusion. Morning - boreu. Mourning - galaru."

I’m sure they’ll appreciate that. 

And while these corgi owners may truly believe their pets have a deep-rooted connection with the late Queen, others think they may just be losing the plot, according to Deadline News

One Facebook user wrote: “Oh my days. Are there really people like this in the world?”

Another said: “Definitely too far, some people need therapy.”

A third added: “Everyone’s lost the plot.”

Queen Elizabeth II owned two corgis and one cocker spaniel at the time of her death, according to Today


It has been reported that the two corgis would move to Prince Andrew’s home in Windsor to stay with his family. 

As per Deadline, Her Majesty reportedly owned 30 corgis during her 70-year reign and owned at least one at any given time between 1933 and 2018.

A hole has truly been left in the corgi world.
