Dogs as pets have a special history associated with the Royal Family with the late Queen Elizabeth II’s obsession with a certain breed of dog brought to light after her death. Now, a photo of Prince Harry petting a dog has caught the attention of social media users. An emotional photo of the Duke of Sussex sharing a mournful moment with a beloved dog during a walk in Windsor has left social media users in awe of it.
The royal couple, including Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, made a surprise arrival to thank mourners who had gathered outside and shared handshakes, hugs, smiles and tears. However, it wasn’t just people in attendance, some even brought their dogs.
Prince Harry’s love for dogs has netizens in awe
As the four members of the royal family came out to greet the public, one eye-catching moment caught the attention of everyone present. Prince Harry seemed enthusiastic about meeting one participant in particular – a golden labrador named Louis. The king clicked as he bent down, giving the polite dogs a few scratches on the ears.
In addition to Prince Harry, his wife and Costumes Alum Meghan was also seen showing her love for the animal as she patted its back. Louis belongs to Sarah Gracie, who also uploaded pictures of Prince and her puppy to her Twitter account. Sharing the images, she wrote: “When our little puppy Louis met Meghan and Harry as we paid our respects to the Queen.”
Awww that’s your dog 🥰… thanks for comforting Harry and Meghan. They need love.

Meanwhile, last month, the couple reportedly adopted a seven-year-old dog named Mamma Mia, who was one of the beagles rescued from a research factory in the United States. The Duke and Duchess also have three other dogs – a beagle, a Labrador-German shepherd mix and a black Labrador.
Apart from the royal couple, the late monarch favored horses, of which she owned more than 100, but the Queen of the United Kingdom’s best friend may have been her corgi. According to Queen Elizabeth II, Corgi dogs were the most loyal of all the monarch’s servants, providing household companionship for nearly a century in the public glare. For those unfamiliar, according to various media reports, the Queen of the United Kingdom stopped breeding corgis in her 90s as she did not want to leave them orphaned after her death.
