The Duchess of Sussex has a way with animals

Meghan Markle was an American actress before she met Prince Harry, married him and became a member of the British Royal Family. She now lives in London and, before arriving there, she had two rescue pups at her home in Toronto. She brought one of them along with her but had to leave the other one back with her friends because it was too old.

Animals appear to be at ease with the Duchess of Sussex. When she met the Queen for the first time at her engagement interview, there were a couple of corgis at the feet of Queen Elizabeth and they did not even bark.
