The beloved dog of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Lupo, has died. A dog who had to pick the name of the future King of England. A photo of their beloved pup was shared by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge earlier this evening.
For several years, Lupo, an English Cocker Spaniel, has been the face of the breed and is responsible for the increase in popularity of the breed around the pond.
The pooch is the offspring of a dog owned by the parent’s Kate. And William happily adopted Lupo.
The dog was 9 years old.
Lupo, which in Italian means wolf, is responsible for Prince George. Well kind of. She and Harry allegedly wrote a bunch of names on paper while Kate was pregnant, which were spread around their floor.
To see which piece of paper he would tap, they turned Lupo loose. Sure enough, it was the one with George’s name.
On Sunday, Nov. 22, the Royal couple announced the sad news on Instagram. They posted the black cocker spaniel picture and wrote,” Very sadly last weekend our dear dog, Lupo, passed away. He has been at the heart of our family for the past nine years and we will miss him so much. – W & C”
