Hunting sounds like a very British sport to practice and apparently Meghan Markle isn’t a fan. According to a new report, it’s become an issue within Prince Harry’s social circle.
Before she got married to the prince, Markle was known for her liberal views and outspokenness. She publicly supported Hilary Clinton and spoke for women’s issues, criticizing Donald Trump and his misogynistic comments. After the wedding, Markle’s been forced to keep her opinions to herself and to watch her words, something that has led to some rumored loneliness and isolation. Despite Markle’s weariness, there have been a few slips that have pushed Kensington Palace into awkward situations.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Lady Colin Campbell, a confident of Princess Diana, said that Markle has been unable to keep some of her opinions to herself, making some of Prince Harry’s friends uncomfortable and annoyed regarding her “trendy lefty stuff.” While there are several things that Markle has issues with, one of the most prominent ones is animal cruelty and the British customs of shooting and hunting.
“She is ultra-liberal and that trendy-lefty stuff does not go down well with some of Harry’s friends. He has introduced her to them all at parties and weddings and private dinners, but she is very anti- a lot of the things that their world functions upon, such as shooting,” says Campbell.
That’s an awkward position for Meghan to be in, but who knows? Maybe Prince Harry’s friends could learn a thing or two about the new world. They can always shoot discs or targets.
