Gratuitous Puppy Shot: Prince William + Lupo Get Cuddly (Awwww!)
Your daily dose of cute: Prince William and puppy Lupo got all cuddly at a polo match for charity. Awwww!
No, this is not breaking celebrity news; it is, however, incredibly cute, and because everyone needs more puppies in their lives, here you go. Gratuitous puppy shot. All together now: Awwwww!
So what exactly is going on here, other than a moment of extreme cuteness? According to People, Prince William’s and wife Kate Middleton’s adorable cocker spaniel puppy, Lupo, had an adventure on Sunday: He went to a royal polo game in the Gloucestershire countryside. And it was for a good cause, too—William and Prince Harry both played on opposing sides at the Beaufort Polo Club to raise money for the various charities they support. Kate, meanwhile, was busy taking inner-city kids on camping trip in Kent, after which she brought Lupo to the game to say hello.
An observer told People, “In true spaniel fashion he was very playful.” We bet! The pup got a chance to stretch his legs as he ran along the sidelines—though he wasn’t above leaping into William’s arms for a bit of a rest and a cuddle. That’s when the picture above was snapped. Just a boy and his dog!
While Lupo was busy dashing around, Duchess Catherine took the opportunity to catch up with some of her royal in-laws. Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn brought their 18-month-old daughter (and the Queen’s great-granddaughter), Savannah Phillips, to the match; Kate apparently got along famously with the little girl. Between the puppy and the baby, we’re not sure which is cuter!
Happy Tuesday, Bettys!
