Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly adopted a Labrador dog together earlier this summer. The dog’s name is not known yet.
Markle has always been an outspoken dog lover. She had two dogs before moving to England, and one of those dogs, a beagle named Guy, moved into royal life with her. Guy was also present at the Royal Wedding, and was spotted in Queen Elizabeth II’s Range Rover as she traveled to Windsor Castle. Meghan’s other dog, Bogart, did not make it to England with her due to his old age and now lives with a friend in Los Angeles.
The Royal Family is also a supporter of dogs; Queen Elizabeth herself is known for her love of corgis. Just months before the new Lab joined the family, the Queen had to put down the last of her corgis, Willow, who was a 14th generation royal corgi. She descended from the Queen’s first corgi named Susan, gifted to her when she was only 18.
Prince Harry revealed in the couple’s first interview after their engagement that the corgis loved Markle, saying, “The corgis took to you straight away. I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at, this one walks in, absolutely nothing.”
Prince Harry and Meghan have reportedly filled the place for dogs in their lives with the new Labrador. The dog has joined the Royal couple on walks in their Cotswolds home and in their Kensington Palace residence. It is not known if the dog joined them on their recent trip to Italy, where they hung out with George and Amal Clooney.
The Palace has not yet officially commented on the dog.
