Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Become Official Parents!

Prince William and Kate Middleton were rumored to be parents of a puppy around New Year’s, when the Duchess of Cambridge was pictured running around her parents’ Bucklebury estate with two dogs.

Now it has been confirmed by the palace that the royal couple have a black cocker spaniel puppy, a rumored Christmas gift from the prince to his wife.

A royal rep told E! News that the puppy comes from a litter “known to the couple through a family connection.” The Middleton family also has a cocker spaniel, which the UK Express reports is their go-to breed, and the reason the royal couple likely made the decision to get another one. Us Magazine reported that William and Kate were pictured on the beach with their puppy in Anglesey earlier this month.


Initial reports had stated that the couple had adopted a chocolate Labrador puppy. A name for their newest addition to their family hasn’t been released yet.

The royal family has been known to be a family of dog lovers, as Queen Elizabeth has known to be a Corgis lover in particular. In August, Prince Charles and Camilla adopted a Jack Russell Terrier that they named Beth.

Prince William and Kate’s Walk from Christmas Service

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Queen Elizabeth at church for two services on Christmas morning – and they drew quite the crowd eager to see them.

With many watching, the couple walked to and from church with much of their family. The Queen, however, took a car to the services – just a short drive from her home at Sandringham, Norfolk. Key in her family’s thoughts and prayers: Prince Philip, who is still in the hospital after undergoing emergency surgery on Friday.

William and Kate were joined on the walk to the 16th century St. Mary Magdalene Church by Prince Charles; William’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie; and newlyweds Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall. Kate, in an aubergine-colored coat by an unnamed British designer and hat by Jane Corbett, was flanked by husband William, 29, and her brother-in-law Prince Harry, 27.

This is the first time Kate, 29, has spent Christmas with the royal family – a fact that likely boosted the number of people who came out to watch from the sidelines. Kate chatted with some children, and Beatrice was seen with armfuls of flowers. The Queen was overwhelmed with bouquets from royals fans.

The royals are set to have a traditional turkey lunch – then watch the Queen’s speech.
