Inside the Royal Family's Hunting Tradition (Yes, Kate Middleton Hunts)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have also introduced the sport to son Prince George



Kate Middleton and Prince William capped off the summer with a traditional grouse shoot on Queen Elizabeth’s Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle, last weekend.
The couple wasn’t just joined by extended members of the royal family, they also brought along their 7-year-old son Prince George, who watched the adults take part in the game bird shoot on the 7,000-acre grouse moor at Corgarff — about 10 miles from the castle. William and Kate have been sharing the royal family's hunting tradition with George for the past couple of years, as the young royal reportedly attended his first grouse-hunting expedition in 2018.
The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, loves the life of royal country wife and mother — and that includes an enthusiasm for hunting.
Ever since Kate and Prince William set up their country home in the rural county of Norfolk in 2014, the couple has been hosting parties at the magnificent Anmer Hall and taking part in the annual shoots around Queen Elizabeth’s Scottish residence and on the monarch’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

“The estate lends itself to shooting. It’s a paradise for it,” Ken Wharfe, a former royal bodyguard who looked after Princess Diana and William and Prince Harry when they were boys, previously told PEOPLE.
“Everything is in place for it and there is privacy and security,” added Wharfe of the flatlands of Norfolk, which provide the perfect environment for shooting on still, crisp winter days. “It is one of the great shooting estates with the best managers and gamekeepers.”

Like most of the royal women, including the Queen’s daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex who has been photographed on a shoot during Christmas, Kate typically pairs up with a guest — someone who is not her husband — for the competitive shoots. The women will either take part in the shooting of partridges and pheasants or help with tallying their partner’s haul.

Even before he moved into Anmer in 2014, William always held winter shooting parties on the estate, basing himself at Wood Farm, during his college years and afterward. And it is thought that the Middletons have joined the traditional shoots alongside the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth.

Prince Harry, who is passionate about his conservation efforts in Africa, is also a keen marksman. When rumors circulated that Harry skipped the annual Boxing Day shoot in 2018 because wife Meghan Markle disapproved, the palace dismissed the claims.

While speaking about Harry and William as champions of the natural world, famed conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall discussed the fact the two siblings do hunt, though she believes Harry will stop engaging in the activity.
“Yes, except they hunt and shoot,” she said when discussing the two’s support for nature conservation. “But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.”

Such a shame to see what has happened to Harry since he always seemed to be the "cool" brother and was a combat military vet etc.

It's sad to see what has happened to him since marrying that liberal white trash/ghetto rat. Gave up his entire life and things that he loved such as hunting and shooting....now is is just like the rest of those phony Hollywood liberal hypocrites.

My bet is that she will eventually dump him and he will go crawling back to Daddy and try to get back in with the family.

Sad to see

The fact that this Jane Goodall does not consider hunting to be a key tool in conservation , tells me that she is no better than the leftist trash who has invaded the United Kingdom in recent years .

I have seen some articles written by her and she is rabidly anti hunting...and as cynical as I am even I was surprised by some if the lies and bullshit she came out with....but all believed by the general sheeple I should imagine.....

The United Kingdom has become a disgrace . Which is quite shameful . I have enjoyed driven grouse shooting over there , quite a bit in the past .

I saw a recent address where all Goodall did was to knock hunting. Surprised at her gross lack of awareness as a scientist and biologist in Africa, I wrote her a "right of reply" email. In it I outlined some of the biological necessities, and human/animal conflict issues surrounding hunting, plus its benefits when managed correctly. I don't think she'll ever deign to reply, but I feel better I sent it in "doing my bit" for our sport. (y)

Kate and William have class

Harry is obviously not very bright and completely whipped by the B rate actress/trash he married. No respect for a guy that walks away from his family like he did. Thought the queen was overly tolerant with his antics and choices, very sad.

Every person from the UK that I know have all stated the same thing to me - that they'll divorce and Harry will come home.

Not sure bout that...I think he has been too californicationized......

Actually I think he's been roped in by "the ol' hairy lasso", but once he gets tired of that I'm sure he'll see there's more to life. (Like getting back his rifles and doing a bit of hunting again.) (y)

He's kind of screwed. She spit out a kid ASAP to keep her hooks in him.

I think so too! What a great way to secure HER financial and social security if/when they divorce and Harry tries leaving her in the lurch.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
