Bubble is the eight hundredth animal to arrive at Old Windsor's Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. The centre is taking in, on average, six animals every day.

"We're seeing an increase in people giving up their pets, but our doors are open 365 days a year and we'll always help those animals that need us. Bubble is an adorable pup but needs owners that can commit to his training. We're sure it won't be long before the right owners come along and he's happily settled in a new home."

She was welcomed into the world just days ago, but Princess Charlotte is already on display for visitors to greet with a wave.

A figure of the Royal princess - made up of just three bricks - was added to Legoland Windsor over the weekend, joining her big brother Prince George and parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince Charles and Camilla and Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton also feature in the display, with Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana sharing a 7cms tall double buggy with her brother outside the 35,000 brick Buckingham Palace.

"Our guests have a real soft spot for the Miniland Royal Family, so we didn't think twice about celebrating the birth of Princess Charlotte by adding her into our hugely popular Royal scene.

"Updating our Royal family has become something of a tradition here at Legoland Windsor and we've had a lot of fun with them over the years – from recreating the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in miniature and commissioning tiny bespoke Royal Ascot hats for the Royal ladies, to throwing Prince George a teeny first birthday garden party last summer. We hope guests will enjoy our latest Royal addition as much as we do."

– Sue Kemp, divisional director of the Legoland Windsor Resort

The Royal couple announced their daughter's name yesterday/on Monday, two days after she was born following a three-hour labour.

Charlotte had been the bookies' favourite, while Elizabeth is the middle name of Kate's mother Carole and the name of the Princess' other famous grandmother, the Queen.

Princess Diana gave birth to William in the same hospital where Charlotte was born, London's St Mary's Hospital.
