The Queen left heartbroken by loss!

The Queen left heartbroken by loss!”

"She has mourned every one of her corgis over the years, but she has been more upset about Willow's death than any of them", the Insider says.

As a descendant of Susan, who was an 18th birthday present when she was then Princess Elizabeth, Willow had a particularly close link with the Queen.

The death of Willow marks the end of an era as there are now no longer any corgis in the royal household.

The Queen has always been associated with corgis but the dynasty she has bred appears to be coming to an end.

In 2017 the monarch also adopted a corgi named Whisper after its owner, a former gamekeeper at Sandringham, died.

'Willow represents a significant thread running through the Queen's life from her teenage years to her 90s, ' says a courtier.

She has had to put down one of her last and most beloved dogs, it was reported last night.

The dogs got underfoot of staff and guests alike.

To this day, the monarch is believed to feed and walk her dogs herself and is extremely particular about their diet, as royal biographer Brian Hoey revealed in his book Pets by Royal Appointment. On Sunday afternoon, the decision was taken to call a vet.

The Queen herself decided that the dog should be put down to prevent any further suffering, sources said.

It is understood Willow has been buried in the castle grounds.

A headstone will be used to display Willow's name.

The death comes in a busy week for the Queen, as she welcomes leaders to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London.

In 2016, Holly, The Queen's second last Corgi passed away.

The Queen still has two dorgis - a daschund-corgi cross.

There is no canned food in sight - the corgis dined on fillet steak and chicken breast specially prepared by a Buckingham Palace chef.
