The Duchess of Cambridge finally let the name of her and Prince William's new puppy slip out. It's Lupo, which is Italian for wolf.
Kate Middleton told the Royal Cocker Spaniel puppy's name to students at Rose Hill Primary School in Oxford. She was visiting the school this week to promote The Art Room, a charity that encourages confidence in disadvantaged children.
According to British papers, a Rose Hill Primary School teacher said the duchess told the class othe name after she was given a cuddly toy dog by the students. She said she would name it for her dog.
Royal officials have confirmed the name Lupo, adding "There is no significance in it apart from they liked the name.”
Before you can say "sit and stay," Lupo already had his own Twitter account Although it doesn't sounds like an official palace site. "@HRH_Lupo ‘Prince among royal pooches. Pet of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Snapping at Nicholas Witchell’s [BBC Royal Correspondent] heels."
Still, it's hard to believe that Witchell, aka the BBC's Royal Correspondent, could get away with posing as royal canine Lupo on Twitter without royal owner permission.
Among Witchell/Lupo's first tweets was the news that Kate would really be in the doghouse for revealing his name when William returns from the Falklands.
Today Witchell/Lupo followed up with this tweet: "All this press attention has got me very giddy. The excitement is leading to little accidents -- thankfully Kate's here to scoop my poop."
