In what may be the biggest sign yet that Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry could be planning to spend much more time in our country, a new report says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have flown their two dogs to Canada.
The two pups – the Duchess of Sussex's beagle Guy and a black Labrador whose name is unknown – travelled with them to Canada during their break from royal duties, according to the Daily Mail.
The publication reports the black Labrador has been seen at the Vancouver Island property where they were said to have stayed during their six-week break from royal duties, to which Meghan has also reportedly returned. E! News reports the same.
Guy is a rescue dog, and Meghan has had him since she lived in Toronto while filming Suits. The duchess brought him with her across the pond when she became engaged to Harry in 2017. People reported after arriving, he broke both of his legs, and needed special veterinary care. Given how much Meghan loves him, this could be seen as a major sign that the Sussexes are planning to spend much more time here.
Meghan is a lover of dogs and in addition to Guy, she also had a labrador-shepherd named Bogart when she lived in Toronto. Unfortunately, he was too old to make the trip across the pond when she relocated in 2017. In her engagement interview with Harry, the duchess said Bogart was "staying with very close friends."
On Jan. 11, it was also reported the Duchess of Sussex had signed a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders before the couple left on their six-week break. That is believed to be a strong indication of how the Sussexes plan to move toward becoming "financially independent," a goal they described in the announcement they were stepping down from their senior royal roles earlier this week.
The day before, Meghan was also said to have returned to Canada, where Archie had been staying with his nanny and with Jessica Mulroney, the duchess' close friend. Harry was said to be following shortly.
After the Sussexes revealed their news, the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William directed aides to come up with a "workable solution" for the couple to step away from their roles. Talks are said to be "progressing well" in that department, according to a new report from BBC News, which says discussions have also involved the UK and Canadian governments.
"[The Royal Family], like everyone, are hopeful this can all be worked out, sooner rather than later," a source reportedly told the PA news agency. "It is in everyone's interest for this to be figured out, and figured out quickly, but not at the expense of the outcome."
