Even dogs are fans of the Princess-to-Be!

Kate Middleton and her fiancé Prince William have stepped back into the spotlight following their engagement, and one of their first public appearances was at their alma mater, St. Andrews University in Scotland. The couple received a very warm welcome from hundreds of guests in the town and on campus, which celebrated its 600th anniversary.

After shaking hand after hand, Middleton couldn't resist reaching out to a furry fan, who looked to be doing a soft bow of the head to honor the future princess. How proper!
