A royal gaff

On Sunday, Prince William and Prince Charles made a passionate plea on television to end the illegal trade in wildlife. In the pre recorded programme, they expressed concern about endangered species such as elephants, rhinos and tigers.

Little did viewers know, at the time, the Duke of Cambridge and his bother Harry were on their way to Córdoba for a hunting trip.  Neither wild boar nor deer are under threat of extinction and I am sure that they will enjoy plenty of action. However, the timing of the trip does seem a little crass to say the least.
