Fashion guru Alexander McQueen left £50,000 to his dogs

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen left £50,000 of his £16 million fortune for his beloved pet dogs, his will reveals.

McQueen, 40, bequeathed another 50,000 to each of his two housekeepers, one of whom found him dead in his Mayfair flat nearly 18 months ago.

But he left most of his money to his favourite charities, including Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London and the London Buddhist Centre.

McQueen left 16,036,500 when he hanged himself after taking a cocktail of drugs on 11 February last year. The designer's will includes provision for 50,000 to be put into a trust for the upkeep of his dogs for the rest of their lives.

McQueen also bequeathed 50,000 to his godson and each of his nieces and nephews, and 250,000 to each of his three sisters and two brothers.
