Prince Harry spent a recent weekend in Germany on a hunting trip with a group of friends. Among them, they shot and killed 15 wild boar in Gorlsdorf, Brandenburg, alongside 60 other huntsmen on a two-day hunt.
The event was organized by Harry’s close friend Franz-Albrecht zu Oettingen-Spielberg, and took place on his family estate. Harry arrived by private jet and is rumored to have taken along his own weapons. Harry, 33, has previously been photographed with a water buffalo he’d legally shot in Argentina, though it’s unclear whether he hit any boar over the weekend.
We’re also unsure about the nature of the trip — it might have been a recreational activity for the prince and his friends, or a method of controlling the boar population in the area. We so hope it’s the latter, especially based on Harry and William’s support of anti-poaching campaigns in Africa.
His fiancée, Meghan Markle, is a dedicated animal lover, with two rescue dogs, who mean the absolute world to her, and she reportedly tries to stick to a vegan diet — apart from the odd roast chicken, of course.
He’s already pledged to give up smoking for Meghan, will he give up hunting as well? She’s giving up a lot to become a royal, so it seems only fair but, hey, what is fair in the eyes of love?
