Does the Royal Family Actually Walk Its Own Dogs?

On Wednesday, Meghan Markle was reportedly seen walking her dog and cleaning up after it—or was she? Miami-based reporter Lisa Petrillo tweeted a photo that appeared to show the Duchess of Sussex walking her pup outside of Kensington Palace, but palace sources denied that the woman in the photo was Meghan. Petrillo insisted on Instagram that she met the Duchess and pet her dog, and though some royal watchers believed her, others remained skeptical.

But even if we never learn whether that dog walker was Meghan or not, we can't help but wonder: Do royals even walk their own dogs in the first place? And do they clean up after them?

"Members of the royal family are just like you and I when it comes to walking their dogs. From the Queen to Princess Anne and even Duchess Kate, they have all been spotted walking their four-legged friends around the numerous royal estates and parks over the years," royal commentator Omid Scobie tells BAZAAR.com.

"And yes, when it comes to dealing with a dog’s, ahem, business, no royal has been too proud to handle things themselves," he added.
