William and Kate also experienced a form of therapy that was proving popular with staff and patients alike: Alfie's cockapoo puppy. The therapy dogs, soon to be trained to support patients and hospital workers, instantly fell in love with the royal couple, cuddling them as they took turns holding them. Alfie will be joined by six-year-old Jasper, an award-winning therapy dog who already works at the Trust.
