According to British media, Prince Harry decided to boycott a family’s annual hunt. The reason? His beautiful wife, Meghan Markle. It happened a few days ago, after a trip to the royal country estate of Balmoral. It seems that the charismatic prince has refused to take part a the family’s annual bird-hunting journey.
However, this is not the first time when Harry refuses to be part of a hunting expedition with his family. At the end of the last year, Harry declined the invitation of taking part at the Boxing Day Hunt. All the more so as he took part at the event even since he was a child. Meghan who’s a animal lover is thought to be the reason of his decisions.
“Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and doesn’t like hunting in any form. If it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it,”a source declared.
More than that, it is thought that the Duchess of Sussex is a vegan. Back when he was still an actress, she declared: “When I’m filming, I’m conscious of what I eat. I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance.”
In Great Britain, a study revealed that more than 65 percent of the population is against hunting and this old habit should stop. On the other hand, League Against Cruel Sports said that hunting birds for sport should be illegal.
“The shooting industry tries to paint pheasant and partridge shooting as some kind of traditional, idyllic activity which puts food on the table. That image has been blown out of the sky because people clearly don’t believe it anymore,”said Chris Luffingham, the director of campaigns for the League.
It is also confirmed that Meghan is trying to encourage Harry to eat a more vegan diet. According to Daily Mail, “Meghan has completely changed Harry’s diet. She’s got him juicing and he has lost at least half a stone, which is a lot for someone as skinny as he is. They have bought a top-of-the-range juicer and she has him on fruit and veg smoothies. She’s also weaning him off meat.”
After all, the positive print Maghan put on Harry is more and more visible!
