On a visit to Clitheroe Community Hospital, the Duchess of Cambridge thanked staff for their work throughout the pandemic. But during the trip, Kate, who was joined by Prince William, met ten-week-old cockapoo Alfie.

Alfie is soon to be trained to support patients and colleagues at the East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.

During the meeting with her new canine friend, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed the sex of her own family dog.

The Cambridge’s dog was given to the family by Kate’s brother, James Middleton, in 2020.

The spaniel, who was eight months old when it first joined the Cambridge household, was revealed by the Duchess of Cambridge to be a girl.

The insight into the family came after Kate met soon-to-be support dog Alfie, who she described as “so sweet”.

But she added: “Our dog is going to be very upset.

“She’s going to be like, ‘Where have you been?'”

However, the name of the Cambridge’s dog remains a mystery.

The Royal Family have long been known to be dog lovers, with the Queen having owned several corgis throughout her reign.

The 95-year-old monarch’s love for corgis began during her childhood after her father King George VI brought home a Pembroke Welsh corgi puppy for the Royal Family.

According to the Royal Collection Trust, the corgi’s official title was Rozavel Golden Eagle, but he was more commonly known by the name Dookie.

Later in 2012, she was reported to have at least five.

But a love for dogs isn’t just isolated to the Queen.

The Duchess of Cornwall has two rescue dogs called Beth and Bluebell.

Meanwhile, the Cambridges previously owned an English Cocker Spaniel named Lupo, who sadly died in November 2020.

At the time, William and Kate shared the sad news on social media, saying: “Very sadly last weekend our dear dog, Lupo, passed away.

“He has been at the heart of our family for the past nine years and we will miss him so much.”
