The Duchess of Cambridge has been receiving countless gifts ahead of her baby's arrival in July, but on Tuesday she was given something for the other little darling in her life – her beloved Cocker Spaniel, Lupo.

As Kate was heralded by hundreds of excited children celebrating St. George's Day, she was presented with a basket of goodies for the royal pup.

Among those greeting her at Manchester's Willows Primary School on Tuesday was student Chloe Pomret, 10, who joined the school's "executive dog," a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Henry, to present the expectant mother with roses and gifts for Lupo.

"Henry, you have gone to so much trouble," Kate, 31, said with a laugh, upon greeting the school's dog.

"Ahem, I think that was 6-2," William said, declaring victory over Kate during their visit to a Glasgow sports center April 4. But, after his official duties were done, he turned to Lord Lieutenant Sadie Docherty, the couple's host for the day, and chivalrously fessed up: "The only reason I won today was because Catherine was pregnant," the prince told Docherty, who recounted the conversation to PEOPLE.

Prince William will reveal soon what he hopes to do once his current tour of duty as a Royal Air Force helicopter rescue pilot ends this summer.

"Changes [in his life] are afoot," a source close to William tells PEOPLE. And while most royal insiders believe that he will signal the end of the idyllic life he and wife Kate have enjoyed in north Wales, the question does arise: What will he do next?

Palace officials are set to unveil that decision in the coming weeks, and he has several options: to stay in the RAF; move to another branch of the military (including possibly going back to the original regiment he joined, the Household Cavalry); or to leave service completely.

Little Lupo went to a royal polo game in the Gloucestershire countryside Sunday – and got a cuddle and more from Prince William.

It was Kate who'd brought the couple's black cocker spaniel to the outing, just hours after she'd spent time with inner-city kids on a camping trip in Kent.

"In true spaniel fashion he was very playful," an observer tells PEOPLE.

And while he got some exercise by dashing around the sidelines with Kate, Lupo also got to rest his legs when he was embraced in the arms of William, – who planted a princely kiss on the pooch, to boot.
