SIR – Yet again, the outrageous hypocrisy of the Windsor family has come to the fore this week.

Prince Harry and Prince William both enjoy blood sports. Both shoot animals for fun. Both have the brass neck to come out and campaign for calls to protect wildlife. The “endangered” argument just does not cut it.

On that premise, if elephants were plentiful, they would happily shoot them dead, saw their heads off and mount them on their walls as trophies.
