Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Approve of This $8 Pup Toy

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry are remaining mostly out of the spotlight, in the wake of their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, where they levied several damaging accusations against the royal family. Prince Harry recently made a trip to England to honor his recently deceased grandfather, but Meghan remained at the California home, where she is bonding with the couple’s young son and preparing for the arrival of their baby daughter. Likely, the former royal is also taking her pets on lots of long walks through their California estate. And when she does, People Magazine reports that she brings along a fun, inexpensive toy to entertain her canine companions.

Meghan is no stranger to charitable causes. Even well before she met Prince Harry in 2016, she was speaking out on behalf of animals and pet adoption.

After she married into the royal family, she continued to spend her time working with animal rescue organizations, often referencing her own experience as a dog owner. In a 2019 essay, Meghan detailed how important it is to give animals a second chance at love: “As a proud rescue dog owner, I know from personal experience the joy that adopting an animal into your home can bring,” she detailed.

“The choice to adopt a pet is a big decision,” the Duchess of Sussex wrote. “…[it] comes with much responsibility but infinite return on investment. It will undoubtedly change your life.” The former actor is still an animal devotee, even though she has since left the royal family — and she and Prince Harry have several pets of their own.

As reported by Parade, Prince Harry and Meghan have two dogs, a beagle named Guy and a black Labrador mix named Pula. The Labrador was adopted not long after Meghan and Prince Harry’s 2018 wedding and got her name from the official currency of Botswana, a place that holds special significance to Prince Harry.

Guy the beagle is also a rescue, who was adopted by Meghan when she was filming Suits in Toronto. Both dogs moved with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to their new home in California, and have undoubtedly been enjoying their new, low-key lives.
