Further investigation reveals the dog's name is Charlie, and that he would really like a pat from Harry and Meghan.

Wellington is known for its windy weather, so naturally Charlie was wearing a blue vest. Was it a tribute to the dress Meghan wore in Fiji last week? (Probably.)

Here is Charlie again.

Good boy.

For those tracking the fashion during the royal tour of NZ, this is Charlie the Pug dressed in a Superman onesie.

UPDATE

Charlie's owners Cherry and Neil told BuzzFeed News that Charlie did not get his pat. They are planning to try again in Rotorua on Wednesday, the final day of the royal tour.
