Finding Freedom, a biography about the Sussex royals, revealed the pup shares its name with Botswana’s currency.

It said: “That summer the couple welcomed a new addition to the family, a black Labrador rescue they named after Botswana’s currency: Pula.

“The word means “rain” in the Bantu language of Setswana—and for very good reason.

“With its semi-arid terrains, the country considers rain valuable and a blessing. Just like the high-energy pooch.”

But in the short clip, the pair agree about the importance of voting, with Ms Steinem claiming “if you don’t vote, you don’t exist”.

She added: “What worries me the most are young people, who I understand are the least likely to vote and I can understand the feeling that they don't think they have an impact.

“Yet, it's more important for them to vote than anyone else because they're going to be alive long after I am, and they're going to be suffering the consequences.”
