Prince William en Kate Middleton are mourning the loss of an important member of the family: their dog Lupo.

The couple announced on Sunday that Lupo had passed away the previous weekend after nine long years as their faithful pet.

Kate’s brother, James Middleton, who breeds dogs and gave the future king and queen their little pup, also wrote an emotional tribute to Lupo.

“It is with great sadness that Lupo, the beloved dog of my sister Catherine and her family has passed away. Lupo was the son of Ella, brother to Zulu, Inka & Luna,” the 33-year-old captioned below a photo of the dog. “Nothing can ever prepare you for the loss of a dog. For those who have never had a dog, it might be hard to understand the loss. However for those who have loved a dog know the truth: a dog is not just a pet; it is a member of the family, a best friend, a loyal companion, a teacher and a therapist.”

“There isn’t much of a rule book on how to grieve for a dog, but I’ve said a prayer, lit a candle and taken Ella (Mum) for a long walk to spend time remembering Lupo. Rest in peace Lupo. Tilly & Mini will be waiting for you. You will always be remembered and your legacy will live on forever. Good Boy,” he concluded.
