The royals are known to be a family of dog lovers, often accompanied by their beloved pets during outdoor pursuits.

Prince William and Princess Kate's black spaniel Orla regularly stars in their family photo shoots, while King Charles' much-loved Labrador Harvey rarely strayed from his side during his younger years.

Nowadays, King Charles and Queen Camilla share their home with jack Russell terriers Bluebell and Beth, while Sarah Ferguson inherited Queen Elizabeth's corgis Sandy and Muick.

Following her breast cancer surgery, the Duchess of York even commented how excited she was to get back to walking the dogs.

Meghan Markle is a dog lover too, rescuing her hounds including her and Prince Harry's latest addition, a beagle named Mamma-Mia, who joins fellow beagle Guy and a black Labrador named Pula at their home in Montecito, California.
