The rumours are true – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have indeed expanded their family three months into married life.
After months and months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a new addition to their home, and are now a family of four.
Richard Eden, writing for the Daily Mail, confirmed that the pair adopted a new puppy, a Labrador Retriever, at the beginning of summer.
The dog has been living with them, settling between their main residence in Kensington Palace, and their second country home in the Cotswolds.
Richard’s source said, “The dog is already happily ensconced at their cottage,”
The new arrival already has another four-legged friend at home, in the form of Meghan’s beagle, Guy, who came with her from Toronto when she moved to London. So he or she has had someone experienced on hand to show them the royal ropes.
It’s well-known that Meghan is a massive dog fan; as well as Guy, she also had a rescue dog, Bogart, who sadly had to stay behind in Canada.
The prince also revealed in the couple’s BBC engagement interview that Meg and his grandmother’s corgis had instantly hit it off.
It’s actually Prince Harry’s very first pet dog though. However, the royal has been regularly pictured in the past with pups of all breeds – and clearly loves the company of canines.
We’re sure that Harry, Meghan, Guy and the new arrival are loving their countryside walks together as a family of four.
However, the pair will have to leave behind their new arrival to the family soon, as they’ll be jetting off for their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga in October.
Harry and Meghan will also return to royal duties tomorrow night (29th August) after a long summer off, when they attend a special gala performance of West End hit musical Hamilton.
They’ll then go to the WellChild awards on Tuesday 4th September, a national charity for which the Duke of Sussex is a patron.
