William and Kate welcomed Lupo into their family in 2012—before the birth of their first son Prince George. Per People, they got Lupo so that Kate wouldn’t be lonely when William was away on a six-week-long deployment.
Kate’s brother James also spoke out about Lupo’s passing, saying on Instagram “Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a dog. 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.”
