Prince Harry reportedly sold his collection of guns that are believed to be worth around £ 50,000 in an attempt to please wife Meghan Markle.
The Duchess who loves animals reportedly wouldn’t like to hunt, so husband Harry decided to give up the hobby.
A hunter reportedly bought a pair of Purdey firearms five months ago, before the royal pair stepped down as senior members of the royal family, reports The sun.
Meghan Markle is against blood sports and even follows a vegan diet during the week – despite Harry participating in the sport as a child.
A friend of the anonymous buyer said, “He bought them because he wanted them, not because they were Harry’s, but he was quite excited when he found out.
“These are fine examples and he is very happy with them, but he is not the kind of person who wants to brag about the royal connection,” said The Sun.
Both Harry and brother William have been criticized in the past for their hunting habits, which they have maintained despite their extensive campaigns in the wild.
Last month, the 86-year-old primatologist told Dr. Jane Goodall, a friend of Harry’s, tells the Radio Times that she thinks the Duke will stop hunting.
She said that Harry and William were champions of the natural world “other than hunting and shooting”.
Goodall said, “But I think Harry quits because Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that’s over for him.”
Harry and William have regularly taken part in Boxing Day shoots at the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, leading to criticism of the brothers.
A photo of Harry crouching over the body of a water buffalo shot in 2004 during a 2004 hunt trip in South America in South America came to the fore publicly.
This week, it was revealed that the couple, now living in the US, are launching a new biography called Finding Freedom, which promises to reveal new details about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their dramatic royal exit.
