Meghan Markle Just Had Her Cutest Engagement Yet, Hanging Out With Rescue Dogs

Like we need another reason to be jealous of the Duchess

Last year when Meghan Markle literally wed Prince Charming, we thought we’d reached peak jealousy. Turns out, we hadn’t.

That point would be reached today, as the Duchess of Sussex spent the day at the Mayhew Animal Welfare Charity for her first official visit since she was announced as the organisation’s patron earlier this month.

Dressed in a $35 H&M maternity sweater dress and an Emporio Armani coat, Meghan met several rescue dogs being housed by the centre.

The dog-loving Duchess was introduced to Minnie, a Jack Russell who is being put up for adoption – and, unsurprisingly, immediately fell in love with her.

Meghan said she couldn’t adopt Minnie because she and Prince Harry have their “hands full”. 

The couple are already the proud parents of two dogs at Kensington Palace: Guy, a beagle Meghan adopted from a rescue centre in Ontario, and Oz, a black Labrador the couple adopted soon after their wedding.

While also meeting staff, volunteers and beneficiaries at her new patronage, Meghan expertly dodged a bold comment.

“What a lovely lady you are,” said volunteer Peggy McEachrom. “May God bless you.”

“And you’re a fat lady!” she added, motioning to the Duchess of Sussex’s growing baby bump.

Meghan immediately let out a big laugh and responded, “I’ll take it!”

During her visit, the Meghan saw first-hand a number of projects run by the charity, designed to improve the lives of animals and people and to better communities both in London and internationally. Some of the projects include animal therapy visits, work with homeless people and their pets and international projects, such as dog rabies vaccinations in Kabul.
