Prince Harry skipped a family tradition for his wife, Meghan Markle.

The former "Suits" actress is having her first summer with the Firm. The members of the royal family usually fly to Scotland to be with the Queen for this time of the year. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted in Balmoral last week, but Prince Harry skipped a significant part of the annual vacation.

According to Francesca Specter, a journalist for Express, Prince Harry didn't join his family in a grouse hunt. The activity is one of the royals' favorite pursuits and they have been practicing this for centuries.

Markle is popular for being a feminist, but the actress is also an advocate for animal rights. Thus, many believe that Prince Harry's decision of avoiding the said tradition is motivated by his wife. Fans thought that the Duke of Sussex did it so as to not upset his wife.

This isn't the first time Prince Harry opts out from this type of activity. In December, he also didn't join the Boxing Day in the United Kingdom. The annual activity involves shooting pheasants and partridges which many believe won't make animal-lover Markle happy.

"The Boxing Day shoot was always going to be a tricky issue. Meghan is a keen animal rights campaigner and doesn't like hunting in any form," one insider at Balmoral told The Sun.

"Harry loves it and has always been out there on Boxing Day. But if it means breaking with long-standing royal traditions to avoid upsetting her, so be it," the source continued. "It's fair to say that there are some pretty stunned faces around here."

"If Meghan's not comfortable with him doing the shoot, he wouldn't want to upset her," another insider said.

In related news, Prince William and Kate Middleton were slammed for bringing Prince George to the said activity. Many are concerned that he might grow up without compassion to the animals.

"It's just too bad animals have to die in order for them to have fun. That's a terrible thing to teach children, especially at George's age. Modernize Royals. Join the human race," Gail Thompson Mosley commented on Emily Andrew's post.

"I just read a news article that said Prince George was taken to his first grouse shoot while staying a Balmoral. If that's the case, it make me feel sad & angry that he's going to grow up without any empathy for animals," Michelle P agreed.
