Meghan Marklehas been left “distraught” after her pet beagle broke two legs, it has been claimed.
The accident is understood to have happened shortly after her engagement to Prince Harry was announced at the end of November.
The newspaper has reported that the dog is being treated by Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, described as a “world-class orthopaedic-neuro veterinary surgeon” and known for his work on television.
Ms Markle has previously spoken of her deep love for her two dogs, Guy and Bogart. Bogart, a labrador-shepherd cross , has been left behind with friends in Toronto after he was considered unfit to fly with the former actress to her new home at Kensington Palace.
Speaking to the BBC after the engagement was announced, Ms Markle said: “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.
“I think he’s doing just fine.”
Prince Harry’s fiance has previously described her dogs as “my boys” and “my loves”, and said that they “mean the absolute world” to her.
The Mail on Sunday reported that Guy is receiving treatment at a facility in Surrey, with Prince Harry travelling with a “very upset” Ms Markle to support her.
A spokesman for Kensington Palace has not yet commented.
Ms Markle was described this weekend as having a “feeling of zen” around her by broadcaster Tom Bradby, a former Royal correspondent and friend of Prince Harry.
He told the Sunday Times: “It’s a great story at a time when the whole country is wrestling with issues of diversity. “The idea that Harry is marrying a strong, mixed -race campaigner for human rights ”
Asked if he has met her, Bradby added: “I have. She’s incredibly likeable and warm.
I’m sure she’s got her flaws, like all of us, but it’s difficult to see what they are.
“She’s got a feeling of zen around her, and if you look at Harry over the past year and a half, he’s really calmed down. “The only thing he gets exercised about now is protecting her from the media.”
Asked whether there might be concern among other members of the Royal Family that Ms Markle will claim their spotlight, Bradby said: “There are bound to be tensions — there just will be, but they’ll probably be between the generations.
“I think Kate and William are a bit absorbed in having young children and keeping the work show on the road.
“There are always tensions about money and who’s going to do what and I’m sure they’ll go on. They won’t necessarily get any better or worse.”
