Prince Harry Is Skipping A Royal Boxing Day Tradition For Meghan Markle

Rightfully so

Meghan Markle has had to give up a lot in order to join the royal family (including her amazing Toronto apartment, her job on Suits and apparently her dog).

So it seems only fair that Prince Harry make a few sacrifices as well. Earlier this month, it was reported the royal gave up smoking for his fiancé, with a source telling the Daily Mail, “Harry has promised no smoking at all at home. It’s not nice for Meghan as a non-smoker. So there’s no more hanging out of the window for a quick puff. Harry has quit for Meghan.”

Today, it’s also emerged that Prince Harry is refusing to take part in a royal Boxing Day tradition: hunting.

“The Boxing Day shoot was always going to be a tricky issue,” a source told the Sun. “Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and doesn’t like hunting in any form.

“Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day. But if it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it.”

This certainly isn’t the first time the couple have broken royal protocol however: Markle was the first non-royal to attend Christmas with the Queen, signaling the monarch’s clear approval of the actress.
