Nancy will read her heartwarming tale about a beagle and the Duchess who adopted him, inspired by the true story of Meghan Markle and her rescue dog, Guy, and lead some fun craft activities based on the book. For Ages 4-7.

This rags-to-riches story of how one regal beagle got a second chance at life will charm and delight. When he was a pup, Guy was just like any dog in the shelter; he liked to bark and follow his nose, and dreamed of a forever home above all things. But when Guy met Meghan, he had no idea he was about to star in his own Cinderella story. Guy can now be spotted escorting Queen Elizabeth and frolicking in Buckingham Palace.
