News of the royal couple's adoption was first revealed this summer, with a source telling 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."

Weeks later, royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith, who penned Prince Charles' recent biography Charles: The Misunderstood Prince, told USA Today that the rumours were true regarding the royal couple's new family addition – and that they've adopted a black Labrador named Oz.

Meghan's love for dogs – particularly rescue dogs – has always been well-known. The former Suits actress was the proud owner of two during her time in Toronto, named Bogart and Guy. Once her engagement to Prince Harry was announced in November 2017, the star revealed that Bogart would be staying back in Canada with friends, due to his old age.

Guy, however, lives in Kensington Palace and it seems he has adapted well to his new life. Just one day before the royal wedding, the adorable pet was spotted riding with the Queen in the back seat of her car in Windsor!
