Sarah Ferguson has marked her 63rd birthday with a sweet update on the Queen's Corgis, calling the adorable dogs 'the presents that keep giving.' 

Sarah Ferguson has called the late Queen Elizabeth's Corgis 'the presents that keep giving', sharing a touching series of photos with the precious dogs in honor of her 63rd birthday. 

The Duchess of York took to Instagram on Saturday to pay tribute to Her Majesty's beloved pets, who are now living at the Royal Lodge in Windsor with Prince Andrew and his ex-wife. 

Sarah, a.k.a., 'Fergie', said it was a 'big honor' to rehome the Queen's two Corgis, Muick and Sandy, following the monarch's death at the age of 96. The precious hounds have joined the duke and duchess's five Norfolk terriers, and are reportedly settling in well to their new digs.

"They all balance out, the carpet moves as I move but I’ve got used to it now," Fergie joked in an interview with the Telegraph last week. 

In the carousel of photos shared on her Instagram this morning, Sarah can be seen playing with Muick and Sandy in the sunny gardens of the Royal Lodge. 

Wearing a green blazer and red and multi-colored shawl, the Her Heart for a Compass author appears to be in her element as she smiles alongside the adorable canines. Fans were quick to share their emotional reactions to the images, which mark the first time Muick and Sandy have been seen since their big move. 

"How heartbreakingly beautiful, they are in safe, gentle hands with Sarah," one person wrote, while another said, "My heart melts at this... It's a lovely site to see Sarah.

Prince Andrew had gifted Corgi Muick, pronounced 'Mick', to the Queen during lockdown in 2021, along with a dorgi named Fergus. Fergus sadly died shortly after Prince Philip's death and was later replaced by Sandy, a corgi gifted to Her Majesty by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie for the monarch's 95th birthday.
