The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's dog has made her first official public appearance!

While competing in the Out-Sourcing Inc. Royal Charity Polo Cup 2022 in Windsor yesterday, Prince William was cheered on from the sidelines by his wife Catherine and their black English cocker spaniel Orla.

Two-year-old Orla was a present to the couple and their children from the Duchess' brother, James Middleton, following the death of their beloved pooch Lupo.

The pair haven't previously shared many details about Orla.

Back in October 2020, the Cambridges revealed they were mourning the loss of Lupo, who they had for nine years.

The pooch often appeared in photos alongside the family, and the couple’s eldest son, Prince George, eight, was particularly fond of the black pup.

Lupo was part of a litter born in 2011 to Ella, the dog of Catherine's parents Carole Middleton and Michael Middleton.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed the puppy to their Kensington Palace home that Christmas, eight months after their royal wedding.
