Lupo, the Cambridge family dog, dies
Lupo, whose name is the Italian word for “wolf”, was bred by the Duchess’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton’s former dog. In 2013, Lupo was the reason behind firefighters visiting the Cambridge’s home as he got stuck.
When the Duchess was pregnant with Prince George, she and the Duke of Cambridge played a game where they displayed their baby name choices for George on the floor, and it is said that Lupo sniffed the “George” card.
Lupo was given to the couple as a companion for Kate whilst William was away in the Falkland Islands during the early half of their marriage. The couple announced Lupo’s death on Instagram, with a message stating “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”.
