Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, mourn their pet dog Lupo.
The couple and their children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte (five) and Prince Louis (two) – lost an important family member when the Royals announced their beloved English cocker spaniel had passed away after nine years in the family.
In a post on their Instagram account at Kensington Royal they wrote: “Very sad that our dear dog Lupo passed away last weekend. He has been the heart of our family for nine years and we will miss him so much. – W & C (sic) ”
The pooch often appeared in photos next to the family, and the couple’s oldest son, Prince George, was particularly fond of the black puppy.
Bred from a dog owned by Katharina’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton, Lupo was given to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.
Lupo is even believed to have helped them choose a nickname for Prince George when Catherine was pregnant after she and William scattered pieces of paper with different names on the floor and Lupo picked up the one that read « George » was attracted. .
Earlier this year, the Duchess joked about the family’s pet when she visited Savannah House, an establishment owned by the social justice charity Extern in County Kildare.
While playing table tennis, the queen said, « We try this at home, but our dog keeps catching the table tennis balls. «
Meanwhile, Prince William recently shared his life at home with his children during the coronavirus pandemic, admitting that George loves the outdoors and is like a « caged animal » when unable to go outside.
He said, « See my children, see the passion in their eyes and the love of being outside. They find a beetle or they love to watch bees make honey. George, especially when he’s not outside, he’s like a caged animal. He has to go outside. «
