Her other dog Guy, a Beagle, did make the journey and is now part of the family and has joined the Sussex's other pet, a black Labrador.

The duchess is a dog lover who supported various animal rescue centres in her home city of Los Angeles. Meghan has taken up the post of Patron to support the education and animal welfare work of Mayhew.

The duchess picked up the dog when she spotted it was shivering and clutched it to her chest when she chatted to Mayhew staff who told her about the charity's projects in India and Afghanistan.

Meghan's new patronage is very close to her heart, as she previously adopted two rescue pups when she lived in Toronto.
