Following their beloved Lupo’s death a couple of months ago, William and Kate have become new dog parents to a new and very adorable Cocker Spaniel puppy.

William and Kate shared the news of Lupo’s passing in a rare Instagram post 2 months ago. It read: “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.”

The whole family was evidently heartbroken, but William and Kate found the perfect solution for their grief.

The family expands

The new pup is said to have been bred by Kate’s brother’s dog, who is, as a matter of fact, Lupo’s sister! So hopefully, there will be some lovely Lupo traits carried on in the puppy’s personality!

The Cambridges reportedly had their pick of the litter, bringing their children with them to choose the lucky pup who would be their new lifelong companion.

An adorable Spaniel puppy

The new puppy’s name has yet to be revealed, but it has been confirmed that he became part of the family a couple of months before Lupo passed.

And of course, we know that it’s a Cocker Spaniel pup. So one thing’s for certain – he or she is utterly adorable!
