It is a time of great change for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. After announcing that they will be stepping back from their role as senior members of the royal family, now they have made a pretty big move that might hint at where they will be relocating. The two of them have reportedly flown their two beloved dogs to Canada, which is a good indicator that they are considering a more permanent move to Canada.
When Meghan moved from Canada to the UK she brought along her beagle Guy, and since then it seems their family has grown, and we don’t mean baby Archie. The couple reportedly got a black Labrador, but its name is yet to be revealed. They flew their two dogs to Canada for their six-week break from royal duties, as the media have seen a black Labrador on the grounds of the property where they stayed on Vancouver Island.
At the moment, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have revealed that their plan is to step back as senior royals, to become financially independent and to split their time between the UK and North America. Moving their dogs to Canada only further confirms that they will be moving out of the UK, and when asked about the whole situation, a spokeswoman for the couple declined to comment.
Meghan is well-known for her immense love of dogs, with one of her charities she supported being an animal welfare project. When she moved to England to be with Harry, she had to leave Bogart, her Labrador-shepherd mix, in the US. Meghan also promoted taking in shelter dogs, as she has previously said the pair of rescue dogs “means the absolute world” to her and has referred to them as “my loves” and “my boys”. Guy and Bogart regularly featured on her Instagram account, with Guy even appearing in a patriotic knitted Union flag jumper. Meghan often used the #adoptdontshop hashtag in her Instagram posts.
The Queen is the royal best known for her love of dogs. In their engagement interview in 2017, Harry revealed the Queen’s corgis and dorgis took to Meghan straight away. He said: “And the corgis took to you straight away. I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at; this one walks in, absolutely nothing…” Describing the moment, Meghan said: “Just laying on my feet during tea, it was very sweet.” And Harry added: “…just wagging tails and I was just like argh.”
