♦ Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to have flown their two dogs to Canada.
♦ Royal fans are taking it as the clearest sign yet that a permanent move is on the cards.
While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced last week that they're planning to split their time between the UK and North America going forward, it seems likely that they'll spend more time in the latter. According to the Daily Mail, the couple flew their dogs - beagle Guy and a black labrador we don't know the name of - to Canada in November for their six-week break, and fans are taking it as a sign that they're not planning to be in Britain much.
Harry will join Meghan in Canada, possibly as early as next weekend.
And sources say the biggest clue that they are never coming back from their holiday home is the presence of their two dogs. https://t.co/OtQfHhL4fU— Rebecca English (@RE_DailyMail) January 11, 2020
Both royals are animal-lovers, but Meghan especially. She chose animal welfare charity Mayhew as one of her first patronages after becoming a royal, and when she moved to England to be with Harry she had to leave her Labrador-shepherd mix Bogart in the US.
The Duchess is currently in Canada with baby Archie who, reports say, had been left with a nanny and Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney while the couple were in the UK.
Last week she and Prince Harry announced they would be stepping back from their roles as "senior royals", working to become "financially independent". Whether they'll be returning to the UK any time soon is unknown, but we hope they're feeling more settled with their family - dogs and all - around them.
