It seems weird that Frederik missed the first day at school for her daughter!! He preferred hunting instead of going to the school with Mary and Isabella???

This wasn't Isabella's first day of nursery school. It was a day for her to meet the teachers and other children, to get used to the new surroundings, etc. Isabella is yet to actually start nursery school. But, this isn't the correct thread for this discussion.

These pictures disturbed me deeply. I know it´s "tradition" in many countries, I also know we eat meat and chicken, etc...but those poor animals, laying there and especially that child touching them. It made me very sad.

I can imagine you do. But you have to remember that these animals had a good life before they were killed, in contrast to the animals that supplied the chickenbreast, porkmeat etc. that you buy at your local supermarket. That is meat from animals that were lucky if they ever saw the sun and were raised on unhealthy food.

I don't know, but the hunting doesn't bother me the way it does others. I see it as a tradition, and in the UK it's a big part of our royal family as well, and really anyone with "old money" has been hunting at least once, whether they liked it or not. So I think it is a personal choice, and those who don't should not force their views on others, just as those who do don't force their views on others.

Thank you, Antonieta. I couldn't recognize her in the photos. I wonder if Princess Benedikte and her family attended the hunt? It seems like they usually attend the hunt each year.

I agree, I'm deeply disturbed too. This is a very sensitve issue, perhaps the royal house should have a more moderate position about this and don't allow pictures of dead animals next to them be taken.

In a society that is deeply concerned over it's enviromental and ecologic impact over this Earth, the picture of a child watching dead animals is disturbing. Shouldn't we, the XXI people be teaching our children respect and love for all living things?. Just a thought, I DON'T WANT TO START A POLEMIC DISCUSSION ON THIS!!

What happens to this deers? Are they donated as food or something?. Do you know if the area is overpopulated with these animals?.Is any of the danish royals involved in animals rights patronages?.

I completely agree with your comments. There are some traditions that should just be relegated to the past.

I think what's more disturbing to me is no only the killing of innocent animals for sport. But, taking pictures with them as they are your trophies and not lifeless animals that you killed. Also, the pictures of Prince Christian with the dead animals were truly disgusting.

Christian has grown up so much! Too bad Isabella was not there!

In France sometimes hunts are organized when there are too many deer (to protect crops) and also too many wild boars, who are dangerous for people when they are too numerous, when they cause accidents and destroy crops
it's not fun activity but this maintains a balance
maybe the same thing happens in Denmark

Hunting is part of responsible land management. Steak just doesn't appear on anyones plate out of nowhere. Animals are raised and killed for food one way or another.

Hunting is a way of life if you live on and/or own country property. If it is bothersome please don't open a thread that has "royal hunt" in the title.

Yeah I understand that, that is why I'm asking our Danish members if this animals are eaten or if there is overpopulation, something that might justify the killing of animals more than just a sport

I think many of us, with not such strong stomachs, didn't expect to see the images of the dead animals when we open the thread, but I'll keep your kind advice in mind

Maybe I should have made that clear, but I was talking about the tradition of hunting for sport/entertainment that should be relegated to the past. You are talking about hunting to maintain crops or maintain a balance. I didn't mention in my post that hunting for legitimate land management purposes should be stopped. Please don't misunderstand me.

I too think this is one 'royal' tradition that could go. Hunting for sport is a Far cry than hunting for food. Seeing the young prince 'in training' was quite odd. I know this is done, it is just not something I'm interested in. Next year when it is time for the 'royal hunt' I will remember not to open the thread!
