We can't really compare him attending major public events with him watching his father shooting in a privaty property.

Personally, I see nothing wrong with shooting.

Yep, this denigrating article has come out following the censored pics of Charles shooting at Sandrigham... So let's have it at Edward... Doubled standard right?

Nor do I but, still, I'd prefer to see a little boy staying behind a person who's shooting a gun. I have no doubt the perspective of the photo is deceptive but surely it's worth being super-cautious when there are shots being fired?

I agree. It would've indeed been a little better if perhaps James was standing behind Edward. Even though James looked like he was wearing protective clothing, guns can still be dangerous so as you had said, it's worth being extra cautious, especially when there are little children around like James. Let's not forget that he's only six, which is still quite young.

I do have a problem with shooting (but then again, I haven't grown up in an environment where hunting and shooting is the norm) as it's technically killing animals just for the 'fun' of it all, though on the other hand, it is a royal and aristocratic tradition. As well as the BRF, the Danish Royal Family have also just held their annual hunting party, and I read that CP Pavlos and CPs Marie-Chantal of Greece's older sons have started hunting as well. (Granted, not shooting, but a similar thing.)

it isnt shooting just for 'fun'. they eat what they shoot. This will probably be pheasants. Christmas food and presents for friends and family.

I think the weapon appears to be close to James depending on the perspective. Is what you can see in the pictures.

Eating wild game is much more environmentally friendly than eating farm animals/fish. The latter is very damaging.
I'm a longtime vegetarian, but I can respect that the royals make pheasants/deer/wild boar a large part of their diet.

Anna- The pictures you did share- especially the one of the Duchess of Cambridge made me tear up!
Hope there are photos- and I hope Catherine does a Xmas visit to a hospice- would not be surprised!

What beautiful, beautiful pictures of the COuntess; she looks absolutely stunning. The softer hair frames her face beautifully and the coat suits the blue of her eyes extremely well.
