He may only be three years old, but it appears Prince George has already fallen foul of the RSPCA.
Kensington Palace released four photographs to mark the prince’s third birthday, including one showing the royal toddler holding an ice cream close to the mouth of family dog Lupo.
It is unclear if George actually fed the dog ice cream, but the RSPCA was taking no chances by releasing a statement.
The statement read: “It is lovely Prince George is trying to help keep his family dog, Lupo, cool in these high temperatures.
“We would advise people to be cautious when giving their dogs food meant for human consumption as some items, such as chocolate, can be highly toxic to dogs and dairy items can be difficult for them to digest.
“Instead of ice cream, we suggest making an ice lolly from pet friendly ingredients. Making these can be really fun for children and the end product is both safe and enjoyable for dogs.”
