Kate Middleton's younger brother James Middleton has posted an adorable video of his dog Nala reacting to the news that the pubs have reopened in the UK.

In a short video that was posted on Instagram, James was walking his dogs with his fiancée Alizée Thevenet when he showed off his dog's unique reaction to hearing that the pubs in the UK are open.

James pointed the camera at his dog and said, “Nala, the pubs are open!” The chocolate spaniel then quickly sprinted away from her owners and into the distance. James captioned the video, “ON! Check out Nala's reaction when she hears her four favourite words…”

Fans loved this reaction from the pup and took to his page to share their delight. One fan commented, "That’s brilliant! Hope Nala enjoys a pint or two!" Another said, "Nala is so well-behaved! You've done such a wonderful job in training her...all of your dogs really!"

James regularly posts images of his dogs on his Instagram page. He and his fiancée have five spaniels - Ella, 13, Zulu, eight, Inka and Luna, six, and Nala, one. They also have a four-year-old working golden retriever named Mabel.

James Middleton has previously credited his dog, Ella for introducing him to his fianceé. James wrote in The Telegraph, “I have Ella to thank for introducing me to Alizée in 2018. The two of us (Ella and me) were at the South Kensington Club in Chelsea. Ella was lying at my feet under the table; realising she might want some water, I trusted her to take herself over to the water bowl across the terrace.”

He then revealed that his dog instead decided to make friends instead of get some water.  “However, she made a beeline for Alizée,” said James.“Rather embarrassed, I went over to apologise and bring Ella back. But Alizée thought I was the waiter and ordered her drink while continuing to stroke Ella, who at this point was on her back lapping up the attention.”

James regularly uses his platform to talk about his dogs and share dog training tips. He is the owner of the dog company Ella & Co which focuses on dog wellbeing and sells dog food. James, the founder said on the company website, "A few years ago I was facing a difficult choice between maintaining my busy lifestyle and maintaining my dog’s raw food diet. With Ella & Co, I’ve found a way to do both. And now I’m sharing the solution with you."
