Will and Kate Meet Adorable German Shepherd Police Puppies

When we're not watching videos of kittens and puppies (for work, of course), some of us have been following the royal visit to New Zealand. So, imagine our delight when our two favorite things - puppies and Duchess Catherine's perfect hair - joined up for a picture perfect photo opp today.

Kate and Prince William visited the Royal New Zealand Police College in Wellington, and had the chance to meet police puppies from the Dog Training Centre. The couple took part in a ceremony to remember the lives of New Zealand police officers killed on duty over the last 127 years. They then watched recruit training and a dog-handling demonstration. After that, they were introduced to some of the cutest future German shepherd police pups.

Learn more about this breed below!
