Step aside, Harry...

Meghan Markle Has A New Love: Her Two Adopted Dogs

Meghan Markle's Love For Her Pet Dogs Guy & Pula

Meghan Markle has a special fondness for her pets, not unlike that of her grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II. According to a close source, the Duchess of Sussex has found support in Guy and Pula—the two dogs she recently adopted—during her transition to post-royal life in California and difficulties including lawsuits in 2020.

Prince Harry apparently has competition for his wife's heart... from two four-legged friends. According to a source who spoke to Hello!, Meghan Markle has developed a special affection for Guy and Pula, two adopted dogs who were by her side during difficult times in the complicated year that was 2020.

Almost a year after breaking away from royalty, Duchess Meghan seems to have found a balance in her life thanks to her family, including two friendly pups she adopted from animal shelters in recent years.

A close source has told Hello! that the Duchess of Sussex holds dear her two pets, Guy and Pula, as they have made for stable company amid lawsuits, media scrutiny and rumours, and her and Prince Harry's stepping down from the Royal Family.

In fact, Meghan's love for her dogs is such that they both found a privileged spot on the Sussex family's Christmas card in 2020. Prince Harry and his little son, Archie, were also captured in the stylized holiday card.

Along with her charitable activities as royalty, Meghan has also developed a special bond with various associations that help animals in difficult situations. As part of that commitment, Meghan and Harry decided in 2018 to adopt a little beagle they named Guy.

Two years later, in early 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expanded their family with a rescued Labrador retriever they named Pula. Currently, the family lives in a Santa Barbara mansion, which includes a huge garden where Guy and Pula can have fun with their animal-loving family.
