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.
Don't get me wrong, Meghan Markle is probably one of my favorite people ever, but her not letting Harry do the Boxing Day pheasant hunt is not a vibe— bets (@jet_set_bets) December 17, 2018
@JeremyVineOn5 If Meghan doesn't agree with the Boxing Day hunt that's fine, but I wonder, she knew what she was taking on marrying into the Royals 👑 she didn't put her foot down last year when she was just a "fiancée" #makingapoint— Katie White (@katiew3105) December 17, 2018
Yep cause Harry has no mind of his own without his nag of a wife. Jesus.— Obsidian Blue (@obsidian_blue) December 20, 2018
