Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, recently adopted a Jack Russell puppy from an animal rescue
shelter in London, People Magazine reports.
The wife of Prince Charles fell in love with 12-week-old puppy, Beth, when she saw the pooch's picture in an email. Soon, the pooch was picked up from her temporary home at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in a chauffeured car to begin her life with the Royal family.
"Beth is a charming, confident little puppy and we know she will be very happy in her new home," Battersea's chief executive Claire Horton said in a statement on the shelter's website.
The Duchess visited the shelter last year with Prince Charles to open a new cattery there, and mentioned how much she would like to replace her beloved Jack Russell terrier Freddy, who passed away three years ago, according to the Daily Mail. When Beth arrived at the shelter along with more than 100 other dogs in July, Battersea staff members wrote to the Duchess asking her if she would like to adopt.
Like any other adopter, Camilla had to pay the 105-pound re-homing fee and underwent a "home vetting" procedure by the shelter's staff.
