Prince William and Kate Middleton said Lup (pictured with Prince George in 2016) was ‘at the heart,’ of their family since 2011

It is believed Lupo helped William and Kate pick a name for Prince George.   

According to The Sun, the couple wrote names on various piece of paper and scattered them on the floor. 

Lupo wandered through them, but stopped when he reached the seven-year-old’s name.

Speaking shortly after Prince George’s birth in 2013, Prince William said: ‘For me Catherine and now little George are my priorities, and Lupo.

Firefighters were once called out to rescue Lupo, after he got his stuck in a gate at the royals’ home Bucklebury Manor, in Berkshire

‘He’s coping alright, as a lot of people know who’ve got dogs and bringing a newborn back, they take a little bit of time to adapt, but he’s been alright so far, he’s been slobbering around the house, so he’s perfectly happy.’

Kate Middleton is thought to have named Lupo after her paternal great-grandmother, who was born Olive Christiana Lupton.

In 2013, firefighters were called out to rescue Lupo after he got his head stuck in a gate at the royals’ home in Berkshire. 

Firefighters rushed to the £2million Bucklebury Manor, only to find he managed to escape.

A Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said at the time: ‘Our crew got to the manor but were told as they arrived at the gates that the dog, which had got its head stuck, had been freed just a few moments earlier so their services were not needed.’
