Prince George’s New Photo With Dog Lupo is Causing Controversy — Find Out the Surprising Reason Why!

One of Prince George's new portraits is drawing major criticism.

Kate Middleton and Prince William released four snapshots of George to commemorate his 3rd birthday on Friday, July 22. In one photo, Princess Charlotte's older brother can be seen giving the royal family's dog, Lupo, a lick of his ice cream cone — and now the innocent-looking pic is causing controversy.

"It is lovely that Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog, Lupo, cool in these high temperatures," the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSCPA) said in a statement, according to [People](,,2039522221020166,00.html)_.
