Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Black Lab name is a nod to their romance


Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are a couple in love and not afraid to show it. Even when performing official duties on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, the couple never shied away from showing off a small PDA – something few royals dare to do.

They don’t hesitate to talk to others about what they mean to each other, and it’s pretty safe to say that their relationship is as strong as it gets. Almost everything Meghan and Prince Harry do seems to have some sort of meaning. Even when they chose a name for their son, Archie Harrison, it had special meaning, as the middle name “Harrison” had been chosen to mean the words “Harry’s son”.

We all know Prince Harry and Meghan both have weak spots in their hearts for animals. Prince Harry has had a few pets over the years, and everyone is well aware that Meghan’s dogs represent the world to her.

A few years ago the couple added a black lab to their family, but we weren’t sure what they called the dog until now. Here’s how the name of Meghan and Prince Harry’s black lab is a nod to their romance.

Meghan and Prince Harry had a whirlwind romance, to say the least. Just a few years ago, it almost seemed like Prince Harry might never settle down, but we’re certainly glad he did. The prince has had a few girlfriends over the years, but he’s never really been near the altar with anyone.

That all changed, however, when Meghan took the stage, and after dating for a while, Prince Harry offered the American actress while the two were at home, to roast a chicken for dinner. Royal life has certainly had its ups and downs for the couple, and it has become quite overwhelming for them.

After tiring of the relentless British media, they surprisingly announced that they would step down from royal duties. Before long the split was official, and now Meghan and Prince Harry have moved to Meghan’s hometown in LA, California.

Adopt a new black lab

It’s no secret that Meghan has always been a humanitarian who goes out of her way to help others. She loves animals, and People reports that the Duchess even made a secret visit to her animal charity patronage, proving her dedication.

Before meeting Prince Harry, she even adopted two rescue dogs named Guy and Bogart, and fans know how much she still adores them. While Bogart remained in Canada, where Meghan lived, she was able to take Guy across the pond to England when she moved there to be with Prince Harry.

However, the beloved dog is not alone. Meghan and Prince Harry adopted a black Labrador in 2018, and according to Harper’s Bazaar, the new dog gets along wonderfully with Guy and the rest of the family.

They’ve had the Dark Lab for quite some time now, and we recently found out that the dog’s name is a nod to their royal romance. How? ‘Or’ What? Well, Vanity Fair reports that they named it Pula, which means “rain” in Setswana, the language spoken in Botswana. This is important because this is where Prince Harry and Meghan fell in love at the start of their relationship. It is also the official currency of Botswana, which makes it even more special for the couple, Archie, and their wonderful pets.
