Her Majesty will have a “private low-key birthday” as she turns 95 today — just four days after the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh.
She will take corgi Muick and dachshund-corgi cross Fergus for a stroll around Frogmore House, as she has every day since Philip died aged 99.
An insider said: “The Queen did not plan on getting any new dogs as she feared she was getting too old.
“But it was Andrew who surprised his mum with two new puppies when she felt down and alone in the Castle after the Duke was taken to hospital.”
The Duke of York, 61, stepped down from royal duty 18 months ago over his links to dead paedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein.
Andrew, a “favourite” of the Queen was warned by palace chiefs to forget any plans to return to public life until he has cleared his name.
He “categorically denies” any wrongdoing.
