Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their dog and of course, it’s adorable


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have welcomed a new member to their family.

Last week we learnt that the royal pair got themselves a new labrador to live with them in Kensington Palace and their country home in the Cotswolds.

A source told the Daily Mail:

‘The dog is already happily ensconced at their cottage.

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

Aww. And now, we know the name of the new puppy and guess what, it’s not anything regal in fact, it’s actually quite adorable. As the pair decided together to call the dog Oz.

According to USA Today, calling the dog Oz has some connection to do with author Sally Bedell Smith, who has written several biographies about the royal family.

Before moving to the UK, the Duchess of Sussex had two rescue dogs, Guy and Bogart which lived with her in Canada. Sadly however, Bogart was deemed too old to move to the UK and therefore only Guy, Meghan’s beagle, made the big move alongside the royal.

We’re still unaware as to whether or not this new addition is too, a rescue dog or if we’ll get to see him anytime soon. Hmm, fingers crossed. We’re already swooning at the idea of Prince Harry holding the little puppy. Dreamy eh?
