Prince William and Kate Middleton have started their family by adopting an adorable cocker spaniel puppy.
A palace spokesman confirmed to ET that the male black royal canine is a few months old and comes from "a litter known to the family." No name has yet been revealed for the tiny cocker spaniel, which is reportedly a favorite breed of the Middleton family.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been spotted taking beach strolls with the puppy, which was originally rumored to be a labrador.
The palace also confirmed that William and Kate are now back in the UK after vacationing with the Middleton family on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
