Just think of it as dinner on the hoof.
Culling of herds is important. If they have no natural enemies herds grow but their food supply does not so they are subject to illness and starvation, especially in a very small nation like Denmark where there is no place for growing herds to expand to.

I just hope they're feeding a lot of people with the amount of slain animals. I'm sure we're not even seeing the extent of what's not shown in the photo.

I am surprised to see Duke and Duchess of Vendome hunting in Denmark. Does Prince Henrik happen to know the couple?

I have no problem seeing the results of the hunt. I am a meat eater so I do not see much point getting sentimental about it all.

An observation is not sentimentality and I'm a meat eater as well. I suppose I'm accustomed to see my meat in packages rather than freshly slain, but that's the climate I've adapted to.

It basically says that Don Alfonso de Tornos y Zubiria passed away on 5 April 2013, aged 75, after suffering of cancer.
He was born in 1937 in Spain, and was married since 1976 to the Austrian noblewoman Maria-Antonia Edle von Steinhart, by whom he had three children: Philomena, Maria Magdalena and David.
He was a discreet and learned man, passionate about history and reading.

The French magazine "Gala" interviewed the Duke and Duchess of Vendome this week. There's a new photo of them with their two children, Gaston and Antoinette:

Here's a link to the full article:

A very nice photo. Antoinette's little dress looks cute.

They are a beautiful family. The French are lucky to have the House of Orleans. It's a shame they are not reigning, the Count of Paris would be an outstanding King, he's a very wise man and very regal as well, truly a son of Madame and Monsieur.

I think it would be interesting if France was a monarchy now. I agree; this family is very nice and the children are so cute.

A King would prevent people like Sarkozy and Hollande, the socialist pig, from having too much power.

And the Count of Orleans supports values that the politicians are trying to destroy, like the institution of family.

That's true.

They must have inherited this disposition for family quarrels from their uncle, Prince Pedro Gastão (1913-2007), 2nd Prince of Orleans-Braganza, who stole the properties from his sister and cousins, while half of the family was in Europe, unable to return to Brazil, because of WWII.

One would assume that any monarchy would have been a constitutional monarchy so Sarkozy and Hollande would have exactly as much power as the constitution and their parliamentary majorities allowed them. As long as they acted within their constitutional rights the King could say and do nothing.
The late Count managed somehow to squander what was once a massive fortune, and he fought with most of his children. The current count has of course had his own marital difficulties and there is the issue of his disabled elder son and what the rights the count will decide he has in the "succession". All has not been rosy in the House of Orleans and then of course there are the other claimants to the French throne.
