Prince Harry has reportedly sold his handmade rifles worth more than $60,000 after he quit hunting. The decision was made out of respect for his actress wife Meghan Markle with whom he shares son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
According to The Sun, the 35-year-old former royal has sold them to another hunter in a private deal. He had learned to hunt as a child and has not joined his colleagues at recent game shooting events. He is believed to have quit hunting due to Markle’s opposition to the practice.
A friend of the anonymous buyer told the news outlet that Prince Harry had sold the guns five months ago, “He bought them because he wanted them, not because they belonged to Harry. But he was quite chuffed when he found out.”
Dr. Jane Goodall, a conservationist and a friend of Markle had recently told the Radio Times that Harry would quit shooting animals for sport.
“I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting,” Goodall said.
