Sarah Ferguson is convinced that the ghost of Queen Elizabeth II is haunting her corgis.
The Duchess of York took over the care of the former monarch's infamous corgis after her passing, and quickly noticed some spooky behaviour from the pooches.
In an interview with People magazine, the Duchess detailed how the affectionately-named Sandy and Muick (pronounced Mick) appear to "bark at nothing".

Ferguson argues the canines are actually barking at the ghost of her former mother-in-law: the late Queen: "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."
It's no secret that Queen Elizabeth II was very fond of her corgis, and Ferguson definitely feels the pressure: "They are national icons, so every time they run chasing a squirrel, I panic. But they're total joys." the Duchess commented.
She thinks the pets are settling in well at her home, the Royal Lodge in Windsor, adding, "They're with me a lot, and they think I'm very funny."
Ferguson previously described her adoption of the dogs as a "big honour", adding, "They all balance out, the carpet moves as I move but I’ve got used to it now."

The corgis were originally a present to the Queen from Fergie herself, her ex-husband Prince Andrew, and their daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, in 2021. After the Queen's prominent death in 2022, the pets were adopted by the Duchess, joining Andrew and Fergie's five Norfolk terriers.
The Queen's loyal corgis were reportedly in the room with Her Majesty in her final hours, the beloved pets at their owner's side as she passed away peacefully.
The pair of pooches were then pictured outside Windsor Castle, saying their final goodbyes to the monarch's coffin, before being returned to Fergie and Andrew.
