Has Duchess Kate's Dog Lupo Been Banned From Kensington Palace?

Remember the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's dog Lupo? He's the cocker spaniel who tried to steal Prince George's thunder in the first official baby photo.

Well, Lupo is in the doghouse.


The Express reports that since the birth of the royal baby, Lupo has been on a "doggy holiday".

Lupo wasn't allowed to go on the Christmas break to Sandringham and Duchess Kate's brother James Middleton is now Lupo's dog walker. He's been spotted walking Lupo near his office in South Kensington.

After the Middletons gave Lupo to Kate as a puppy, the Duke and Duchess were often seen with Lupo at polo matches (in the days before Prince George). And he was pretty cute, wasn't he?


We're sure Lupo is in safe hands. Sounds like the poor pooch has missed out on living the high life in a palace.
