A smiling Kate headed out to Kensington Gardens on Monday for a stroll through the public park with her 4-month-old black cocker spaniel puppy. She wore a favorite shearling coat by LK Bennett and her Le Chameau Vierzonord boots over blue jeans.
Lupo, whose name was revealed this week at a charity event, first made an appearance with Kate and Prince William on a sandy North Wales beach in January.
While her husband has been away working in the Falkland Islands, Kate has stepped out for a series of charity appointments, including a stop at an Oxford school, where she met with students, and a visit to the National Portrait Gallery for a Lucian Freud exhibition.
