UK Today News: Kate Middleton and Prince William have a new family member, a cocker spaniel puppy. Reports said that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got the puppy in the month of December 2012 and it is two months old.
Close friends of the Royal couple said that they are happy to have a new dog but all the staff of the Palace have been given strict instructions not to reveal the name of the puppy as it is a very private matter. The news was confirmed by the spokesperson of St James’ Palace.
The spokesperson said that the puppy is from the litter known to the couple through a family connection and is a few months old. The new puppy seems to be a good company for Kate as Will is deployed to the Falkland Islands with the RAF for six weeks.
Some reports said that one of the Royal Navy’s most advanced new warships is being sent to the area. On February 2, 2012 it was confirmed that Prince William will begin his six week deployment as a helicopter pilot. Tonight, the Duke of Cambridge will be flying from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire. William will be crewing one of the two search and rescue helicopters.
