Reports speculated that William, 29, planned to give Kate, who turned 30 on Jan. 9, a puppy for Christmas.

If the couple did adopt a dog, the lucky pup won't be the only royal pooch - Prince Charles and Camilla adopted a Jack Russell Terrier named Beth from a London animal shelter back in August. Queen Elizabeth II is also an dog lover, and has owned multiple corgis over the years.
