Fresh from a busy weekend of Christmas festivities with the members of the royal family, Prince William got in a little sport on Monday at Sandringham. Accompanied by Harry, and uncles Andrew and Edward, the 22-year-old royal looked quite the country gentlemen in a hunting cap and shooting jacket as he joined a shooting party on the grounds of the Queen’s Norfolk estate.

Wills seems to have proved himself a natural sportsman, expertly controlling his Labrador hunting dog by whistle and bagging a brace of pheasants and a partridge.

The hunting party is a Boxing Day tradition for the royal family, but this year’s event had to be held on Monday, as shooting is banned on Sundays. Instead, the young Royals celebrated the 26th with friends, security officers and some of the Sandringham staff in a friendly game of football.
