Meghan Markle has hailed the support of her dogs for their support during the Covid crisis, according to an animal charity.
The Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry have two dogs, a black Labrador retriever named Pula and a rescue beagle called Guy.
The Duchess is a supporter of Brit animal charity Mayhew, which looks after the welfare of dogs and cats and helps homeless people keep their pets.
It has now been revealed that Meghan has opened up to staff at the charity about how her pooches have provided her with emotional support.
CEO of Mayhew, Caroline Yates, told Hello! magazine : "Whenever we talk to the Duchess about the charity, she always references how important her dogs are and what a support they are, particularly during everything that's happened this year, with Covid, and with the personal trials and tribulations she went through this year.
"It was really nice to share our experiences with her about how important animals are when things are tough and what a comfort they can be."
Caroline added that despite Meghan relocating to the US last year with Harry and their son Archie, very little has changed and she still receives regular updates from Mayhew.
Mayhew also shared the Duke and Duchess' festive card in December 2020 on social media which showed the couple with their son Archie and their pet dogs in the garden of their £11million ($15million) home in Montecito.

The card read: "Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
Meghan has previously spoken about her passion for dogs and told how they are an important part of her family with Harry.
Meghan communicated regularly with Mayhew during the pandemic last year, it was revealed in reports.

In May a source close to the couple said: "The Duchess is in touch and working with Mayhew at this time. … One thing many people may not realise is the range of work Mayhew does.
"It is not your classic animal charity. They are supporting so many other people in the community too."
