Following her activities for animal rights, Duchess Kate Middleton was spotted stepping on her words and actions during a family gathering at Balmoral.
Preparing for this year’s Balmoral gathering, we recall at the Cambrdiges’ last visit there. But, this visit doesn’t bring a lot of happy memories for the Duchess. Back in 2007, in Balmoral, the animal rights activist received harsh criticism when she was caught deer hunting.
Kate’s father in law, Prince Charles, insisted on giving the Duchess some lessons. Her husband, on the other hand, learned this when he was young from his grandfather Prince Philip.
According to a then-report by The Daily Mail: “Eyewitnesses said Miss Middleton showed a remarkable level of confidence as she chatted enthusiastically with Prince Charles while he showed her the ropes.”
Animal rights charities convicted Duchess’ actions.
A spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) spoke up: ”It is shocking and abhorrent that she is engaging in blood sports.
“Kate is obviously trying to endear herself to the Royal Family and her decision will do her no favours whatsoever.”
PETA’s Yvvone Taylor added: “Kate is obviously trying to endear herself to the Royal Family, which is absolutely appalling.
“It wasn’t so long ago when she was pictured wearing a fur hat which caused a public outcry and now she is endorsing blood sports.
“The vast majority of the public will be disgusted by these images.
“Some have compared Kate to Diana, but Diana never wore fur and she also turned against blood sports.”
A member of the League Against Cruel Sports said: ”Killing deer for a sport is a horrible pastime. It’s very sad that she has chosen to participate in this cruel sport.
“It’s hardly a setting a good role model for young women, killing animals. I can’t see that this will do her reputation any good whatsoever.”
The Duchess of Cambridge didn’t have any comments on the issue.
