Ella (Dog)

Breed: Cocker Spaniel | Adopted 2008

James Middleton had a beloved Cocker Spaniel named Ella that passed away in January 2023 at the age of 15. Middleton said Ella was his therapy dog and helped him manage his depression, even joining him in therapy sessions. Ella also introduced him to his future wife, Alizee, and was his “plus one” at a GQ Man of the Year event. Ella is the mom of Lupo, who Middleton gifted to his sister Kate and Prince William.

It is with great sadness that I announce my dear Ella has passed away. For 15 years Ella has been at my side, from my darkest days to my happiest. I’m going to miss her terribly. Ella had a very short illness, she slipped away in my arms at home and is now buried in the garden alongside Tilly. I took this picture just a few hours before she died. I’m just about holding it together to write this, and despite the fact I knew this day was coming, it doesn’t make it any easier. Goodnight my darling Ella, Alizee and the dogs will take good care of me.
