Royal hunting traditions.

I apologize if there is a thread for this already but Other than the Danes and Brits do the other current kings and CP's like Willem-Alexander, Haakon , etc. still participate on the down low?

I believe the king of Sweden hosts a hunt (annually?) which other royals sometimes attend. May be wrong though...

The dutch royals incl K.Willem-Alexander participate in hunts, but this is kept rather lowkey (no big photoshoots etc); hunting is a passtime that is often criticized in the NL, especially by certain groups (but imo the general public is not very hunt-minded either).

As is well known through some unfortunate accidents :) K.Juan-Carlos hunts as well, although maybe not so much at the moment (due to forementioned scandals and poor health)

Caroline of Monaco participated in hunts in Extramadura when she was together with Ernst of Hannover.

I believe Rainier hunted at his Chateau de Marchais.

Did all the sons (except Prince John) of King George V of England regularly go hunting with their father?
