Throughout her lifetime, Queen Elizabeth II was deeply attached to her dogs, and is believed to have owned some 30 corgis.

At the time of her passing exactly one year ago, on Sept. 8, 2022, the late monarch had two remaining corgis, named Muick and Sandy.

Having been gifted to her by Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, the two dogs returned to the Duke and Duchess of York when the Queen died.

As part of her tribute to Her Late Majesty one year on, Fergie posted a new photo of herself laying in the grass with Muick and Sandy on Instagram.

The duchess captioned it, "As we mourn a year on, we also celebrate the wonderful times we shared with Her Late Majesty the Queen. She entrusted me with the care of her corgis Sandy and Muick and I am delighted to say they are thriving."

None other than supermodel Naomi Campbell took to the comments to share some angel wings and heart emojis.

Elsewhere, the duchess also shared a poignant quote of the Queen's, which reads, "Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load."

She captioned this post, "I often remember the wise words Her Late Majesty the Queen shared with me and the wider world. At a time of great troubles in the world one year after her passing, today this quote of hers seems more apt than ever."

The late Queen and Ferguson were neighbors in Windsor in the monarch's latter years, and they are believed to have shared a strong bond at that time.
