Meghan Markle news: NAME of Meghan’s new dog REVEALED – What is it? | Royal | News (Details)



What is the name of Meghan’s new dog?

The name of the adorable dog is said to be Oz.

The black labrador is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex second dog, as the couple already has a beagle named Guy.

The new dog is said to be adapting well into his new home at Kensington Palace.

Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the news, but a source told the Daily Mail: “The dog is already happily ensconced at their cottage.

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

Ms Markle has always been a dog-lover and before she moved to the UK to marry Prince Harry she had to leave her Labrador-German Shepherd mix Bogart behind in Canada.

The 37-year-old Duchess has on many occasion referred to the dogs as “my loves”.

Guy and Oz are thought to be getting along well as newbie Oz adapts to his new life as a part of the British Royal family.

However, in April Queen Elizabeth’s last corgi, Willow died and the monarch was said to be ‘heartbroken’.

According to a palace source, the monarch had been hit particularly hard by this death, as for the first time since the 1940s, there are no corgis in the royal household.

Willow’s death came 18 months after the loss of another corgi, Holly, who died at Balmoral aged 13.

Since 1945 more than 30 corgis have been in the royal households and Willow’s death in April marks the end of an era.

The Queen still has two dorgis, a cross between a corgi and a dachshund.
