It’s been referred to as an explosive interview that will ‘rock’ the royal family and shock the nation. But for many animal lovers, they were just keen to hear an update on the couple’s two dogs, Guy and Pula.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are well known for their love of dogs. Meghan who is a patron of The Mayhew, a London-based animal welfare charity, has previously talked about how her two rescue dogs have helped her through some very difficult times.

Fresh start

Guy, a Beagle and Pula, a Labrador Retriever live with the couple and their young son Archie in their new home in Santa Barbara, California after the pair announced they would be giving up official royal duties and leaving Britain.

During the televised interview near their home, Meghan and Harry, who are expecting a baby this summer, told Oprah that they will be having a girl.

Harry couldn’t hide his delight at the news that Archie will have a little sister. He told Oprah that with the birth of his daughter, his family will be complete: four humans, and two happy dogs.

Walks with the dogs

Guy and Pula are very important members of the Sussex’s family and the move to California has given them more time and space for family walks. Harry explained:

“This year has been crazy for everybody. But, to have outdoor space where I can go for walks with Archie, and we can go for walks as a family and with the dogs, and we can go on hikes.”
