    Prince Harry stuck to the British royal family tradition of the Boxing Day hunt, despite what some called a "nag" by his wife, former US actress Meghan Markle. The now Duchess of Sussex has been reported to oppose the activity, being an animal lover.

    British media have reported both Prince William and Prince Harry spending the whole day at the shoot and were later joined by their Kate and Meghan for lunch with the Queen.

    Meghan Markle, known as a vegan, has been reported to raise concerns of Prince Harry killing "defenceless animals." Rumours of Harry missing the family tradition due to his wife's aversion to the hunt appeared in UK press ahead of December 26.

    However, it wasn't meant to be and the British royals saw Harry uphold the tradition that goes back to the 18th century.

    Social media commentators rushed to express their views on the matter, some judging 'Meghan's ban,' while others defending the Duchess.
