It goes without saying that the Queen is a huge dog lover, but did you know that the Duchess of Sussex also shares the monarch’s passion for canines?
The Queen reportedly adopted a Pedigree Wolferton Drama, while Meghan adopted a seven-year-old beagle. This year, both royals welcomed adopted dogs into their homes.
Earlier this year, The MailOnline reported that the royal dog lover had adopted Lissy, a four-year-old puppy, in place of her usual Corgis.
A champion cocker spaniel who won the Kennel Club Cocker Spaniel Championship is now the Queen’s new friend.
Mamma Mia the beagle, who was reportedly saved alongside 4000 other puppies of the same breed by federal authorities in Virginia last month, was recently offered a place to live by Meghan.
At Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Montecito residence, Mamma Mia is joined by Guy, a fellow beagle, and Pula, a black Labrador.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also well-known for their love of dogs, so Meghan and the Queen aren’t the only dog lovers in the royal family.
Princess Charlotte’s family dog made her official royal photography debut when she was pictured with the young royal in pictures to celebrate her seventh birthday.
The photo’s caption, which read, “Princess Charlotte, who turns seven on Monday, with cocker spaniel Orla, taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, in Norfolk, at the weekend,” revealed the dog’s name.
James Middleton, Kate’s brother, gave the family the adorable puppy as a gift after their beloved English Cocker Spaniel, Lupo, tragically passed away last year.
William and Kate posted the following on social media to share the sad news: “Sadly, our beloved dog Lupo passed away last weekend. For the past nine years, he has been the center of our family, and we will miss him dearly.”
