Meghan Markle sponsors dog kennel in Archie's name


Duchess Meghan has sponsored a dog kennel in her son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's name.

The Duchess of Sussex, who has her 13-month-old son with her husband Prince Harry, revealed she made the sweet gesture as she wrote a foreword for UK animal welfare charity Mayhew's 2019 annual review.

She wrote: "As an expression of my own commitment, I renewed my sponsorship of a dog kennel in the name of our son, Archie, to create an interim home for a pet in need. I hope you will show them your support in whatever ways you can. When you do, you will be contributing not just to animal welfare but to the shared welfare of us all."

The 38-year-old former actress went on to praise the work Mayhew was doing despite the current coronavirus pandemic.
