Keep calm…and grab a wee-wee pad. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new pup is causing a royal ruckus at Kensington Palace. Earlier this summer, the newlyweds adopted a black Labrador retriever named Oz, but they’re having trouble potty training the newest addition to the royal family.
“The dog has had a few accidents at Nottingham Cottage [their home on the palace grounds] and their country home in the Cotswolds,” a royal insider tells Life & Style. Meghan’s annoyed by the messes, but Harry “finds it hilarious, so she’s given him the job of cleaning up!” Meghan, 37, and Harry, 33, got Oz to keep her adorable rescue beagle, Guy, company while they’re away on an upcoming royal tour to Australia. “Even though he needs a lot of attention,” says the source, “Meghan and Harry just adore Oz.”
But the potty training is the least of the royal duo’s worries. Although the pup was supposed to keep Guy company, it seems like it’s been just the opposite. Meghan’s Beagle isn’t warming up to the new pup in their home. “The lab absolutely loves Guy, but Guy doesn’t like the new dog at all! When the lab comes near him, he nips and tries to get away,” a source told OK! Magazine.
“She’s hopeful that with time, Guy will get along with their new pooch — or at least learn to tolerate him,” the insider added.
