Prince Harry has not been banned from going pheasant shooting with his family on Boxing Day, royal sources claims.
It had been understood that the newlywed was told by wife Meghan Markle that he cannot join members of his family for the traditional shoot.
But an insider has now claimed in the Daily Mail that this is not the case and Harry would go out as normal.
They said: "It’s completely untrue that Her Royal Highness has banned the Duke from shooting."
Meanwhile a friend told the newspaper: "Harry believes shooting is a sustainable field sport and she won’t stop him."
Dad-to-be Harry has reportedly bought a labrador which will act as a gun dog, it is claimed.
Animal-loving Meghan, 37, refuses to wear fur and is against bloodsports.
Last week a source told The Sunday Mirror : “He hardly ever misses the shoot but he loves her so much.”
The brothers have been a part of the Boxing Day pheasant hunt for more than 20 years and Harry, 34, has a reputation as a fine marksman.
Their father Prince Charles will be there and William’s son George, five, may go to watch.
A royal insider told the Sunday Mirror: “In his mind, William sees this as another concerning example of his younger brother being pulled away from his family by his new wife.
“Harry’s always loved hunting and it has provided them with a great chance to bond as brothers.
“But now it looks like Harry’s shooting days are over.
"It’s the latest point of contention between the Princes after a testing time in their relationship.”
