From rescue dog to royalty! Meet the newest addition to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex adopted a 7-year-old beagle named Momma Mia.
The couple met Momma Mia during a visit to the headquarters of the Beagle Freedom Project in Los Angeles earlier this month.
She was one of thousands of beagles removed from a breeding facility in Virginia where they were being sold to labs for animal experimentation.
The Beagle Freedom Project rescued her and 26 others. The non-profit says it hopes to welcome even more pups who need forever homes soon.
The SPCA Westchester also took in a number of the beagles from Virginia and are looking for people interested in adopting them.
