Meghan Markle wrote a letter in which she shares her love for animals, stressing their importance especially in the face of the difficult period of Covid-19.
When the world is going through tough times, Meghan Markle knows she can count on the unconditional love of pets. Prince Harry’s wife signed the preface to the annual report of the Mayhew Foundation, which defends the animal cause. Godmother of this association which had the exclusivity of the couple’s greeting card last December, the Duchess thanked in her text “all those who love animals in London, in England, in the world, and who have supported Mayhew this year ”. “The organization has rescued cats and dogs in critical situations and, of course, provided vital animal health services overseas in countries also affected by the pandemic,” she explained, stressing the importance of donor aid “despite difficult times”.
This fervent defender of the animal cause then confided how the year 2020 had been complicated because of the global pandemic, and praised “the importance of the community and its links”. “We may have been forced to go our separate ways, but we found new ways to be close and support each other through this common crisis. For many of us, it was made that much easier with our pets by our side. (…) As we collectively build the future, I sincerely hope we will do so with continued support and appreciation for organizations like Mayhew, who continue their vital work in times of crisis and calmer times. Their commitment to the cause of animal welfare is unwavering and their effect on the welfare of our community is evident. ”
Visiting a refuge in 2019
In January 2019, Meghan Markle visited a shelter of the association, The Mayhew Animal Home, in London. 6 months pregnant with little Archie, she had spent long moments with Minnie, a one-year-old Jack Russell whom she would have liked to bring home. “But with the baby coming, we can’t have a new dog,” she said with a smile. Meghan and Harry are already the proud owners of two dogs. During the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, last March, they joked, stating: “To have a boy, then a girl … what more could you ask for?” (…) Now we have our family. The four of us, with our two dogs. It’s good, it’s over ”.
