Whatever the royal family does create ripples, and this time it was the picture of Prince George offering his family dog a lick of his ice cream. The photo went viral in a jiffy and prompted several warnings from charities regarding the ill-effects of ice-cream.
The little prince was celebrating his third birthday at the family's Norfolk home at Anmer Hall. The photo shows him lovingly offering a white chocolate ice-cream to Lupo, their pet spaniel. The photo unleashed several reactions. Dog welfare charities issued warnings against the use of dairy and chocolate products for dogs, as they lead to digestive issues and can even prove fatal in large quantities. Others took to social media to criticize the parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Some even went to the extent of terming it as a case of ‘animal cruelty’, christening the Duke as a ‘monarchist monster’.

Post the celebrations, a spokesman for Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess hope that people will enjoy seeing these new photographs. They would like to thank everyone for all the lovely messages they have received as Prince George celebrates his third birthday.” He, however, did not comment on the ice-cream furore.
