“Unfortunately, this past weekend our dear dog Lupo passed away. He has been at the heart of our family for the past nine years and will be sorely missed, ”Kate and William announced on their Instagram account on Sunday.
The royal couple were very attached to their dog and even defended it against Elizabeth II. Indeed, the Queen of England had banned his presence in the family holiday home, the Sandringham house, for fear that it would do damage.
Lupo had since returned to live with the Middleton family but still made a few appearances on official pictures of the royal couple.
