Well, first and foremost, surely there are a lot of people who do not even know what a grouse is. Well, a grouse is apparently a friendly bird that high-and-mighty British royals like to shoot out of the sky. And if shooting an innocent bird wasn't bad enough, it is being reported that Prince George went for his inaugural grouse shoot last weekend, and people are not happy about that at all.

According to a report by Cosmopolitan, Prince George went for his very first grouse hunt over the weekend in Scotland, with his entire family, i.e. Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as his younger siblings, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

As per the royal reporter Emily Andrews, The Queen, Prince Charles, as well as a few other family members happened to eat lunch with little George after he participated in the royal tradition. However, all said and done, people all over the world are vehemently opposed to this particular royal family tradition, and a lot of them took to social media site Twitter in order to express their utter dismay and displeasure at this archaic royal tradition.

The ceremony is Queen Elizabeth II's annual birthday parade and dates back to the time of Charles II in the 17th Century when the Colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle.

One user, pointing out the sheer hypocrisy of the royal family and its members, wrote, "Prince William, in October of last year, made a speech warning us that 'global wildlife populations have halved in his lifetime.' Today, we learn he took his son, Prince George, on his first grouse shoot."

While another said, "I just saw that Prince George has been taken to his first grouse shoot, all in the name of ‘Sport’. Such a shame that another innocent child will grow up to believe that killing animals for fun will be the normal thing to do." A third wrote, "Really surprised that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made a modern day media gaffe by taking Prince George to a Grouse shoot at Balmoral. They shouldn't have needed advice on that one but they clearly didn't get any. Either that or they just don't care!"



 



 



 



 

However, amidst all the hate, there were also a few people who dared to point out the potential hypocrisy in meat-eaters calling out the royals for hunting their own food. One Twitter user commented, "So Prince George has been taken to a Grouse shoot and people are outraged. Odds on many of the same folk eat meat. Far better to kill and eat a bird raised in the wild, shot with no knowledge of what's coming than eat a factory farmed chicken/pig. Misplaced outrage in my opinion."
