Meghan, a puppies lover, previously rescued two dogs: a beagle named Guy who followed her to London from Canada, and Bogart, a mixture of a labrador shepherd who had to stay behind. Neither Guy nor Bogart look like the dog in the picture.
While Meghan and Harry adopted a dog together, their new puppy is a black Labrador that is believed to be called Oz, which presumably looks very different from the pet in the photo, although it is always possible that the couple decided to adopt an additional furry friend .
Meghan previously referred to Guy as her "absolute world" and regularly shared photos of her with her pets while still maintaining a public Instagram presence.
She spoke effusively of Bogart in 2013 with BuzzFeed, and told the website: "It's a small rescue dog from SPOT in New York and it's nine months old. He's adorable. Ellen DeGeneres was there when I was looking at him and he told me I had to take him home. So I did it. It's like Oprah telling you to do something, just do it!
Who will tell? A source told People this week that Meghan Markle finds it hard to know who to trust "from his commitment to Prince Harry."
New life: the duchess has kept her mother close. Doria Ragland recently moved to the UK to be closer to her
Guy was injured shortly after Meghan's engagement with Prince Harry was announced in November 2017, the Mail on Sunday revealed earlier this year. While it was not clear how the injuries could have occurred, it is believed that the beagle is receiving in Surrey.
The eagle-eyed fans were convinced that they saw Guy in the back of Queen Elizabeth II's car in May of this year.
The publication of the mysterious photo arises as reports emerge that say Meghan is having a hard time deciding who she can trust these days.
Ever since the Duchess said she "accepted" Prince Harry earlier this year, the relationships she had in her previous days with Harry have fallen by the wayside as she struggles to know who she can let in.
"Meghan has lost contact with some of her close friends before the wedding, which has been difficult," a source told People in her new issue.
"It's hard for him to know who to trust."
According to the magazine, Meghan has reduced her circle of friends to a select few that she knows are trustworthy.
With so many leaks to the tabloids, and her own family frequently talking to the press about her, it makes sense that she limits her relationships with people who do not count to the media as "anonymous sources". with privileged information.
These trusted friends include his make-up artist, Daniel Martin, and his BFF stylist Jessica Mulroney, whom he secretly traveled to Toronto in August to visit.
"There is a small group of us who register with her and see how she is, but she is still the same person," Martin told People.
Being guarded is not new to members of the royal family. Earlier this year, royal observer Patricia Treble told Vanity Fair: "Look at all the members of royalty, and they are incredibly careful about their friends, they end up having many" acquaintances "or people who" know "them. .
Another real observer, Emily Nash, told the magazine that after the wedding, Meghan would be "getting used to a more discreet social life." . . she will still be seeing and talking with her most trusted friends, just like before.
