“They were devastated when Lupo passed away. It was hoped that a younger dog would give Lupo some company and give him a little more life and energy,” the insider added.

Lupo came from a litter of James Middleton’s pooch Ella’s litter back in 2012, with the 33-year-old revealing his dog had a new little of puppies back in May.

Sharing a sweet snap of the six pups in July, James shared his heartache as it was time for the dogs to go to their new homes.

Following the death of Lupo, James wrote on Instagram: “It is with great sadness that Lupo, the beloved dog of my sister Catherine and her family has passed away.

“Lupo was the son of Ella, brother to Zulu, Inka & Luna. He was 9 years old. 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.

“Rest in peace Lupo. Tilly & Mini will be waiting for you. You will always be remembered and your legacy will live on forever. Good Boy 🐾”.
