Guy, Meghan Markle’s adopted pooch has ‘written’ his own rags-to-riches tale, set for release in November, in the book ‘His Royal Dogness’ published by Simon & Schuster
The illustrated book – the full title of which is The Rebarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog – is not believed to be officially endorsed by the royal family, and is billed as a lighthearted tale of how Guy went from ‘pawper to proper’.
The brown and white beagle’s story was brought to life by Emmy award-winning writer and producer Mike Brumm, and publishing veteran Camille March, illustrated by EG Keller.
MailOnline has contacted Kensington Palace for comment.
Guy, who moved to Kensington Palace with the Duchess of Sussex last year, was adopted by the now Duchess when she lived in Toronto while starring in Suits, and it was revealed earlier this year that he had been just days away from being put down.
A Dog’s Dream Rescue, the dog shelter in Toronto that took Guy in, described how he was placed in a ‘kill shelter’ after being found wandering in the woods in Kentucky in 2015.
Volunteers from the charity organised for Guy to be driven across to Canada to an adoption event, where the Suits actress spotted him and took him home immediately.
He was subsequently spotted travelling to Windsor ahead of the royal wedding, in a car with none other than the Queen herself.

‘Guy was living in a shelter after being found lost in a Kentucky forest, and now he’s living in a palace,’ said Dolores Doherty, who runs A Dog’s Dream Rescue and arranged to have Guy driven 500 miles to Canada by a relay of volunteer drivers.
‘It’s a fairytale, a real rags to riches story,’ she told AFP of the incredible story.
To secure permission to live in the UK, foreign pets must be microchipped, be given a rabies vaccination, and then have a blood test 30 days later.
In an interview earlier this year, Meghan revealed: ‘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.
Meghan has previously described her dogs as ‘my boys’, and gushed that they ‘mean the absolute world’ to her.
During her time in Toronto, the animals repeatedly appeared on her Instagram page and were pictured snuggled up in bed with her.
