Lupo was a dog who held a special place in the heart of the British Royal family.
This amazing canine became part of Kate Middleton and Prince Williams’ lives before their firstborn child was welcomed into the world.
Sweet Lupo was part of the family for eight years and he was so special that he allegedly helped choosing George’s name when he pawed at the piece of paper with that name written on it, according to the Daily Star.
In fact, Lupo was welcomed in at the time Prince William was deployed with the RAF to the Falklands Islands for six weeks. “It was when they’d just got the spaniel to help her with the time apart,” and unnamed source told Hello Magazine. Lupo was part of the litter of the dog owned by Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to Instagram to share the devastating news with their followers, writing, “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.”

Kate’s brother, James Middleton, also paid tribute to Lupo. “Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a dog,” he wrote on Instagram. “For those who have never had a dog, it might be hard to understand the loss. However for those who have loved a dog know the truth: a dog is not just a pet; it is a member of the family, a best friend, a loyal companion, a teacher and a therapist.”
“Rest in peace Lupo. You will always be remembered and your legacy will live on forever.”
Lupo was very much loved and he was part of many of the family’s photos they shared with the public.
