Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Have Named Their New Dog

And it's very Australian

Last week we learned that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had taken the next step in their relationship by adding to their family with the addition of the four-legged kind. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly adopted a Labrador who is settling into life with the royal couple at their home in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace.

“The dog is already happily ensconced at their cottage,” a source told the Daily Mail.

And now we have a name for their newest family member, with royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith the Daily Mail, that the couple have named the dog Oz.

What inspired the name remains to be seen, but we can’t help but think it’s to do with their upcoming visit to Australia.

“Like the Sussexes, the dog will divide its time between the palace and their country home in the Cotswolds.”

Meghan and Harry are following in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s footsteps, who adopted pup Lupo shortly after their wedding in 2011.

Before meeting Prince Harry, Meghan was already a fur mum to her beloved pooches Bogart and Guy, while Meghan flew beagle Guy over to London when she moved, it was thought that Bogart was too old to make the journey.

In her pre-royal life Meghan would often post photos of her “loves” on her blog and on Instagram.
