“Are you a dog or cat person?” — a question that’s been asked for eternity and seldom have we witnessed that ongoing war rest for even a little while. But have you ever wondered about the British royals? From cats, dogs, ponies, and even tortoises, pets have always been a part of the royal family and enjoyed their royal shelter. Among other members, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle is also a pet lover and even promotes adopting pets from shelter homes.

The Duchess is a mother floofer to three dogs, namely Guy, Mia, and Pula. While Guy and Mia are rescue Beagles, Pula is a Labrador. Prince Harry has notably talked about their puppers at par saying that even though they wreak havoc when they are playful, and even chase squirrels, when behaving, they are definitely emotional support dogs. But does that mean that the Duchess of Sussex is a dog person? Or has she ever been a Cat Girl?

It could be the cat’s collar, my homework, some mail that had just been brought in, and some magazines.”
