Kate Middleton's brother James decided to do an act of kindness during his birthday by adopting a partially blind lamb to join his family. 


James Middleton just turned 34, and to celebrate the occasion with his fiancée Alizee Thevenet, he decided to adopt a partially blind lamb. Duchess Kate's younger brother recently moved into his new home, and he revealed that they have a new housemate to join him, his fiancée, and their dog. 

According to the British personality, the lamb, which he's named Captain, was rejected by his mother. As this saddened him, he decided to take the lamb in as his own.

Middleton revealed that the lamb had had no problem fitting in, as it seems to be acting more like a spaniel like his dog. Describing the situation, he said:

"Captain is partially blind & rejected by his mother so we’ve adopted him… although I think he now thinks he’s a spaniel."


On top of announcing the newest member of his family, Middleton opened up about his struggles with dyslexia and depression in the post. He gave thanks to one of his spaniels, Ella, who has brought him happiness. 

Although Middleton recently celebrated a happy occasion in his life, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in a period of mourning.


The birthday boy went on to credit Ella for introducing him to Thevenet, for helping him through his struggles with clinical depression, and for keeping him young and active through it all. 

In fact, thanks to his love for Ella, he launched the company "Ella & Co.," a wellbeing company for dogs. The company sells vitamins, proteins, and natural nutrients to help dogs maintain a balanced diet. Aside from Ella, he has other dogs named Inca, Luna, Zulu, and Mabel. 


Although Middleton recently celebrated a happy occasion in his life, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in a period of mourning following the death of Prince Philip. The late prince's funeral was on April 17, where both Duchess Kate and Prince William were present among the 30 family members allowed to attend. 

The Duke of Edinburgh died peacefully at the age of 99 and will be remembered for his loyalty to the Queen, whom he was married to for 73 years before his death. He will also be remembered by his family members as a source of strength and happiness and by everyone else for his unwavering service to the Crown.
