Prince William's Girlfriend: The Deer Slayer

I'm not a big fan of hunting, particularly for sport. But, I think it's a little much for groups like PETA and League Against Cruel Sports to go after Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton because she went hunting with him.

Kate Middleton last night found herself at the centre of a public row over her decision to go deerstalking with the Royal Family.

Prince William's girlfriend - now hotly tipped again as a future royal bride - chose to join a shooting party in Scotland at the weekend, much to the anger of anti-blood sports campaigners.

"It is shocking and abhorrent that she is engaging in blood sports.

"Kate is obviously trying to endear herself to the Royal Family and her decision will do her no favours whatsoever," said a spokesman for campaign group People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Oh please. If you want to condemn sport hunting, fine. But go after the real targets here. Charles and William are the culprits. If she starts organizing hunting parties then by all means go after her. But in this instance, they come off looking like a bunch of kooks picking on a woman trying to impress her boyfriend.
