Meghan Markle was pictured beaming last night as she took her son Archie and two dogs for a walk in Vancouver Island, hours before her husband Harry landed in Canada.
The Duchess of Sussex, 38, looked at ease in Canada while she walked her Beagle, Guy, and black Labrador Oz, who was pictured in public for the first time during the outing at Horth Hill Regional Park.
Meghan and Prince Harry adopted Oz in London in 2018, and he and Guy were flown to Canada with the couple when they took a six-week break from royal duties in December, perhaps hinting that plans to leave the royal family were already afoot.
Now that the couple appear to be settling in Canada, it begs the question of whether Meghan will be reunited with her beloved Labrador-Shepherd cross Bogart, who she left behind in Canada when she moved to London in 2017.
The former Suits star was accompanied by Guy for her move to London, but Bogart was said not to be fit to travel and was re-homed with a friend.

The Duchess of Sussex, 38, looked at ease in Canada while she walked her dogs, black Labrador Oz and beagle Guy.

In her engagement interview, Meghan revealed to the BBC’s Mishal Husain: ‘One [dog] is now staying with very close friends and my other, little Guy, he’s in the UK, he’s been here for a while.’
The former actress, who lived in Canada while filming Suits, made the heartbreaking decision to leave Bogart after moving to the UK to start her new life, because the pet was too old to fly overseas.
She took Bogart’s ‘best friend’ Guy with her when she moved into Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace with Prince Harry, and the couple are believed to have adopted black Labrador Oz in August 2018.
It is not known if Bogart will now be reunited with the Duchess as the royal couple spend more time in Canada following their step back for senior positions in the Royal Family.
To be able to come to the UK, Guy had to be subjected to several vaccinations and bloodtests, as well as being microchipped.

Shortly after his arrival, it was revealed that Guy had been injured, and was reportedly receiving treatment from television ‘super vet’, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick.
Meghan is known for her love of dogs, and has described the pooches as ‘my boys in’ the past, gushing how they ‘mean the absolute world’ to her.
During her time in Toronto, the animals repeatedly appeared on her Instagram page and were pictured snuggled up in bed with her.
Ahead of the royal wedding, fans were sent into overdrive after insisting that the dog the Queen was seen riding in a car to Windsor Castle with was Meghan’s dog Guy.

And while Meghan and Harry were dating, she would reportedly keep in touch with her pets via FaceTime during her long stints away.
Prince Harry also revealed the Queen’s corgi and dorgis took to his wife ‘straight away’.
He said the mother-of-one had charmed his grandmother’s pets far easier than even he had ever managed.
In their first interview since announcing their engagement, Harry said: ‘And the corgis took to you straight away.’
‘I’ve spent the last 33 years being barked at; this one walks in, absolutely nothing …’

Describing the moment he added: ‘Just laying on my feet during tea, it was very sweet.’
And Prince Harry added: ‘… just wagging tails and I was just like “argh”.’
Harry is today finally joining Meghan and Archie at the oceanfront mansion where Meghan and Archie have spent most of the past two months.
Yesterday he rushed through morning meetings with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and several heads of state at the UK-Africa Investment Summit in Greenwich, arriving at around 11am and leaving by 1pm UK time.
He then held a meeting with his Kensington Palace team about managing his and Meghan’s affairs because they will now be in Canada for the foreseeable future.
