People reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed the new puppy—a black labrador—early this summer, where it joined the couple at their Kensington Palace home. But aside from that, we knew very little else about the latest addition to the Sussex clan—until now.
According to reports from USA Today, the black lab has been named Oz by Meghan and Harry. The inside information reportedly comes from author Sally Bedell Smith, who has written several biographies about the royal family.
Before moving to the UK permanently, Meghan had two rescue dogs: a beagle named Guy, and a labrador/shepherd mix named Bogart. Sadly, Bogart was deemed too old to make the transatlantic move with Meghan and had to stay back in Canada where the Duchess lived prior to becoming royalty.
Guy, on the other hand, has risen up the royal ranks with his human mother, and was even spotted riding in a car with the Queen shortly before the royal wedding.
But it seems Guy is going to have to adjust to not being the sole object of Harry and Meghan (and the Queen's) pet-affections, with Oz now on the scene.
It's no surprise that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the decision to get another dog. Splitting their time between Nottingham Cottage in the Kensington Palace grounds, and a country estate in the Cotswolds, they've got plenty of outdoor space to give their animals a run around. Plus, did you see how much they loved meeting Bród and Síoda—the massive dogs belonging to Ireland's President Michael Higgins during their official visit to Dublin in July?
Pure joy on their faces.
Here's hoping they'll share a picture of new puppy Oz in future.
