Meghan Markle’s Adorable Pups Are About To Become Royal Rescues
With the world aflutter about the news of Prince Harry’s engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, it looks like the Queen’s Corgis will be adding some new fur-family as well!
I love the royal family and I love the royal princes. I love watching their sincere hearts that follow their mother’s, and I love how committed to animal welfare they are.
And so, with yesterday’s announcement from Prince Harry that he’d be marrying American actress Meghan Markle comes news of an addition to the royal family by about eight furry feet. Those feet belong to Markle’s rescue dogs, Guy and Bogart, who many assume will move with her into Kensington Palace once she marries Prince Harry.
Markle is well-known for her commitment to animals and particularly rescue animals, and she said that one of her pups has been with her in the United Kingdom already. The other is staying with friends but it is expected both her beagle and Lab-Shepherd mix will take up residence in the royal palace once their mama is married.
Which means that the Queen’s uber royal Corgis may have a run for their money when it comes to attention and affection. It’s no secret that the Queen has a horde of purebred Corgis she adores, and who are treated like royalty on a regular basis. Markle’s pups may not even know what to do when they see the Queen’s corgis eat from silver platters and porcelain dishes! Talk about rags to riches!
The Queen received her first Corgi Susan as a birthday present in 1944. All of the Queen’s Corgis are descended from Susan, including two corgi-dachshund mixes who were the result of a little royal hanky-panky that happened with Princess Margaret’s dachshund Pipkin.
Prince Harry, for his part, has no concern about the getting along of the newest royals to be, as he says he’s spent the last 33 years being with the Corgis barking at him contrasting with Markle, who says that the Queen’s corgis lay at her feet during tea, and seem to be quite content with the new blood coming to the palace.
Let’s hope they extend that royal welcome to Markle’s fur-babies as well!
