Vegan Charity Gives Prince Harry And Meghan Markle A Bull As A Wedding Gift

1 Minutes Read

A vegan charity has gifted Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle a bull as a wedding present.

Campaigners from PETA adopted the animal in India, claiming he was ‘weak and injured, likely after a lifetime of being forced to toil in the hot sun pulling a heavy cart’.

The bull has been named Merry – a hydrid of Meghan and Harry – in honor of the pair. He will spend the rest of his days relaxing in peace at a sanctuary in Maharashtra, India.

Wedding present

PETA founder, Ingrid Newkirk, said: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle now have a one-ton bull to call their own.

“Rescuing Merry is an ideal wedding present for a couple who want their day celebrated with charitable works and contributions.

“The royal wedding is the perfect time for anyone to spare a thought for and show some love to all our fellow living beings.”

Plant-based

The royal couple, who haven’t publicly acknowledged the gift, have been featured fairly regularly on the pages on vegan-interest publications recently. While neither are vegan – and Prince Harry has a history of hunting – according to reports they are following a ‘mainly’ plant-based diet in the run-up to their nuptials on May 19.

A source told the Mail Online that the Prince started juicing under his fiancée’s influence, and that: “She’s also weaning him off meat.”

Speaking about Harry’s pre-wedding diet, The Telegraph said: “It will be mainly vegan.”
