Meghan issues Harry with Boxing Day ultimatum - it's me or your family!

More leaks from the palace reveal what's going on...

December 16 2018

Prince Harry has been issued with an ultimatum by his new wife Meghan Markle, according to reports from the UK.

Every year, Harry and the royal family take part in an annual tradition of a pheasant shoot on Boxing Day.

But Meghan is a passionate advocate of animal rights and has raised the issue with Prince Harry, 34, telling him she does not want him to attend. 





Harry has joined the shoot for the last 20 years alongside his brother, Prince William. 

But as the royal rift deepens and Harry and Meghan become increasingly cut off from the rest of the royal family, Harry has agreed not to go to the shoot because he "loves Meghan so much", according to The Sun. 

Meghan has always refused to wear animal fur and is a staunch protector of 'defenceless animals'.

“In his mind, William sees this as another concerning example of his younger brother being pulled away from his family by his new wife,” a sure told the Sunday Mirror.

Their father, Prince Charles, will be there and William’s son George, five, may go to watch.

Former Army captain Harry has taken part in the royal tradition beside Wills since he was 12.

But Harry’s hobby is believed to have caused problems last year after he reportedly took part in a wild boar hunt in Germany. Meghan was in Canada filming her final scenes for US drama Suits.

But, she was not happy and just weeks later as Harry skipped last year’s Boxing Day hunt. He also missed the grouse hunt at Balmoral three months ago – a must in the royal calendar.

A source told the Sunday Mirror, "Meghan's a keen animal lover and likes to eat vegan during the week and she has a strict no-fur policy. She has also been encouraging Harry to eat less meat and more fruit and veg and is now keen to fully convert him to her views on hunting.”
