If you’ve been lying awake at night trying to figure out the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new dog, don’t count on getting sleep anytime soon. The newlyweds seem determined to keep their new pooch’s name a secret, despite the best efforts of various external forces. But during a recent trip to Sussex, Meghan did appear to accidentally reveal the dog’s sex.

After being presented at the Brighton-based Survivor’s Network with a drawing of Meghan's longtime beagle, Guy—toppling the patriarchy no less—Harry and Meghan had a bit of a confusing moment when assuming the picture was of their mysterious new pooch. “No one’s even seen our dog,” Harry can be heard saying at the one-minute mark of the clip below. "And they keep getting her name wrong!" Meghan adds. Note the gender pronoun the Duchess uses to describe her four-legged pal: her. Gasp! Finally a detail we can use.

(Once they realized that the drawing was Guy they seemed charmed by the gift. “How lovely!” Meghan can be heard saying. “Look at the little freckles on his face!”)

Meghan and Guy have been together since her time in Toronto, when she rescued him while filming her show Suits. She had another rescue dog named Bogart, who was gifted to friends when she moved across the pond, according to People. Speculation over the latest addition to the royal couple’s family has been rampant since the news broke, with The Daily Mail reporting that it's a labrador. According to royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith, Prince Harry and Meghan named their dog "Oz," which is reportedly a nod to their upcoming trip to Sydney, Australia, where they’ll be on hand for the opening to the Invictus Games.

“The dog is already happily ensconced at their cottage," a source told The Daily Mail back in August. The source added that like its famous parents, the dog will “divide its time between the palace and their country home in the Cotswolds."

Sounds like a match made in heaven.
