Prince George has found himself the centre of a public outrage after a recent royal outing.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the weekend recently at the Queen’s Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle, with their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and baby Prince Louis.

Royal correspondent Emily Andrews, reported that Kate Middleton took her eldest son George on his first grouse hunt, along with several other members of the family including the Queen and Prince Charles.

Royal fans were not impressed!

People soon jumped on the report to share their disgust at such an outing.

Comments include:

“Not a fan of these so-called traditions. Didn’t William visit a sanctuary in India and vowed to continue his crusade to protect Wildlife . You can’t have it both ways my dear William.”

“Hunting WAS a pastime. It is not joyful anymore to hunt. However, I understand that people (Royals or Non Royals) hunt for various and viable reasons, but Shooting for fun is disgusting.”

“It may be ‘tradition’ but I really wish they would get called out more for these shootings. It’s horrible and has no place today.”

“They should be setting a good example. Disgusting.”

“George, taught to murder animals at five years old. @KensingtonRoyal @RoyalFamily”

“Fun? Shooting animals, a five year old … family fun? I would feel the same if it were a five year old in my own family.”

“Absolutely disgusting! The ‘royal’ family should be setting an example, rather than slaughtering innocent birds – horrendous, but so typically British!”

  • Who knows, he may have asked to go and who’s to say they were going to shoot them.


  • Not enough info for me to be outraged about. And also, I don’t care!


  • Were they actually hunting them to shoot them?….or is the time of year when they are around and the children can be shown them?


  • I don’t have a problem with hunting. IF your killing for food that you actually need. This is just sport. It’s not right.


  • Terrible to teach George hunting is fine. Disgusting


  • Poor George being caught up in a decision made for him


  • I am sick of the two faced royals, on one had they say they will protect the environment and support good causes etc, yet they continue with these disgusting traditions. A 5 year old should not be near guns either. About time the royals got with the times and realized animal cruelty is not on. Loss of wild areas due to agriculture is leading cause of the current mass extinction of wildlife. I choose to be vegan because it is the only way out of this mess humans have made.


  • Eating meat and hunting is for me personally the same: it’s both killing or promoting to have animals killed. That’s why I’m a vegetarian.

    • Being a vegetarian is not enough to stop the cruelty of animals, you need to go vegan, not hard, check out forksoverknives.com for inspirations. The dairy industry is still one of the cruelest industries. And egg farming too.

      • Been there and done that when I was single.
        I’m married with someone who loves to eat meat
        But I know, that’s why we use HowNowMilk https://hownowdairy.com.au/about/ or raw milk straight from the farm, love coconut milk & yoghurt too
        and have our own backyard chickens :)


  • It would be interesting to know if they eat the birds? Do they hunt and then eat the birds because they are on the estate. Not a fan of hunting and killing animals for pleasure. Self sufficiency is a completely different issue; however; I am not convinced the Royals live according to self sufficiency!


  • Hunting for sport/fun is disgusting and immoral.

    • Photos I have seen of trophy hunting on facebook pages have repulsed me.


  • Personally I think 5 is way too early to be around hunting but it is a popular past time for royals so they all probably start young.


  • Yeah, I’ll never see what the joy is in shooting living things for fun. Maybe a tradition that needs reviewing and updating, definitely not for small children


  • Probably a tradition that should be revised somehow.
