Meghan Markle reportedly attended the Royal Family's post-Boxing Day Shoot lunch yesterday - despite reports that she had 'banned' Prince Harry from taking part in the hunt.

According to reports, Markle joined her husband and brother-in-law Prince William and his wife Kate for lunch after the brothers took part in the blood sports ritual.

Earlier this month it was claimed that Markle said she hated the idea of her husband killing 'defenseless animals' - and as a result, asked him to abstain.

Blood sports

But according to tabloid newspaper The Sun, a royal source said: "William and Harry spent the whole day on the shoot.

"Kate and Meghan joined them for lunch with the Queen and the rest of the royal party."

Royal tradition

Last year, it was claimed that Prince Harry missed the hunt, out of respect to his 'animal-loving' partner Markle.

At the time, a 'royal insider' reportedly told The Sun: "Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and doesn’t like hunting in any form. 

"Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day. But if it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it. It's fair to say that there are some pretty stunned faces around here."
