The heir to the throne, 31, is gunning for game at the 37,000-acre Finca La Garganta estate in rural Cordoba near Seville
Prince William has gone on a hunting trip to shoot wild boar and stag on an exclusive estate in southern Spain, it has emerged.
Wills, 31, is gunning for game on the sprawling property owned by the Duke of Westminster – Britain's third-richest man and one of his godfathers.
The Duke of Cambridge, a supporter of wildlife conservation charities, has been visiting the 37,000-acre Finca La Garganta estate in rural Cordoba near Seville.
It is one of Europe's largest and most exclusive hunting sites.
Beaters with packs of dogs flush out the wildlife, which includes wild boar and deer.
It has just one virtually impassable public road, its very own petrol station, and a crew of armed security guards.
The estate, which belongs to William's relative Gerald Grosvenor, also boasts six large houses, a private railway station and housing for almost 100 staff.
It is known a favourite haunt of William's.
In January last year he hunted there with his brother Harry, 29, to celebrate the end of the younger prince's advanced helicopter training.
And on a previous visit, Princes William and Harry were said to have bagged 740 partridge in day.
Despite his enjoyment of blood sports and regular Christmas shoots at the Royal Family's Sandringham estate, in Norfolk, William is royal patron of wildlife charity the Tusk Trust.
Six months ago, he made an impassioned speech about the illegal hunting and trade in rhino horn.
Asked in an interview what he thought of people who hunted rhino, he replied: "I think they are extremely ignorant.
"I think they are selfish.
"I think they are wrong, totally and utterly wrong.
"It makes me very angry, it's a waste."
William continued: "Along with elephants, they're two of the most heavily poached animals currently in the world.
"If we don't do something about them it is going to be a tragic loss for everyone."
Earlier this week, his wife Kate was pictured with her family travelling to the exclusive Caribbean island of Mustique.
The trip was Prince George's first trip abroad, and although leaked pictures of the youngster were published in a magazine, the royals decided to take no action over the snaps.
