Meghan Markle’s Royal Beagle Gets His Own Children’s Book

Everybody loves rags to riches story… Especially if its hero is a pooch!


What happens when your life plays out like a literal fairytale? Well, you can read all about it an illustrated children’s book about the luckiest pooch in the world- Guy the Beagle. For those of you who don’t know him, the floppy-eared charmer took the internet by the storm when he was spotted driving to the wedding with Queen Elizabeth herself. Once stories about Guy snarfing down the dropped canapes at the wedding leaked, the four-legged royal quickly became as popular as his parents. So much so that now he’s getting his very own book!

In “His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle: The Rebarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog” Guy shares all about challenges and feats he had since his Mom adopted him in 2015. You see, Guy wasn’t always so fortunate: he was days away from being euthanized when Meghan Markle, then still an actress, decided to give him a furever home. From that moment on, the cute Beagle really had his share of adventures, the most notable being moving to England to j oin the royal family (the four-legged part of it, to be precise). From a shelter in Kentucky to the splendor of Kensington Palace, I bet Guy has a lot of interesting anecdotes to share!

While the book is still not out, there have been some sneak peeks that are more than promising. For instance, Guy the Beagle is comparing Prince Harry’s hair to a traffic cone and shares his woes about having to pee on the other side of the fire hydrant (those Brits and their sides!). But, as all fairy tales should be, the loveable story about the shelter pooch turned royal doggo has a happy end. After all, he is living it up in the palace, with his new rescue sibling and a pack of royal corgis!


As his paws made it a bit difficult for Guy to type out his life story, he got Mike Brumm and Camille March to do it for him. To top it off, the Beagles adventures got beautiful illustrations by EG Keller! The book His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle: The Rebarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog is available for sale now.
