As dog owners, we can’t imagine spending special occasions like Christmases and birthdays without our pets. And that’s exactly the way Meghan Markle feels too!

The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 40th birthday just yesterday, and decided to mark the day by announcing a new charitable project on video.

Her 40x40 project aims to help women get back to work after the Covid-19 pandemic. And helping her to announce the exciting new project was friend and comedian Melissa McCarthy!

But while the content of the video was both interesting and entertaining, we couldn’t help but get distracted by an adorable stander-by: Meghan’s Beagle, Guy.

Guy can be seen sleeping on a very comfortable-looking dog bed in the background during the whole video. We haven’t been able to get an official statement from him, but we’d say he’s a very spoiled dog!

Meghan Markle’s dogs

Guy was rescued by Meghan Markle years ago, before she joined the Royal family. He moved with her to the UK, then back to the US when she and Harry relocated to California.

Though Guy now has to share Meghan’s love with a husband, two children, and another dog, he’s been with her through thick and thin, so we know the two of them have a strong bond. It makes sense that he was with her on her big day!

Happy belated birthday to the Duchess!
