Days after the turned 30, she was spotted arm-in-arm with her – and an adorably gangly puppy – walking along a North Wales beach.
Though the palace would not comment on the dog, it’s assumed the young pup is a new addition to the household, as there had been reports that Will would present Kate with a puppy for Christmas.
As the puppy takes in the beautiful scenery, Kate shows some tender affection for her husband.
What kind of dog is it? The money’s on cocker spaniel, the Middleton family’s favored breed, but the pup’s color works for Will, who grew up with black Labradors.
The grown-ups are deep in conversation, but the energetic pooch tries to get the couple’s attention.
Will stops to pick something up from the beach for the little guy.
Or perhaps they decide to leave it where they found it.
As the sun sets, it casts a beautiful light over the scene.
It’s time to head home – who’s hungry?
Hope to see you again soon!
