Reason Why .Royal family banned from 175-year-old hunting tradition after being kicked off estate

The royal family has been banned from hunting on the Scottish estate near Balmoral Castle — bringing a dramatic end to their 175-year-old tradition.Since 1852, the royals have spent time shooting, deer stalking, and fishing on the Abergeldie estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

It’s a pastime that has been in the family since the Balmoral estate was purchased by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, which subsequently granted them access to the 11,500-acre (18-square-mile) plotBut after the estate went up for sale in 2020, the new owner has ended the royal lease, which means King Charles and his family are no longer free to use it.

According to planning documents filed by Abergeldie’s new owner, Alastair Storey plans to revamp the grounds.“For the last 175 years, the Royal family have leased the sporting rights at Abergeldie but this has now ceased, and will be actively run by the new Laird,” docs filed with Aberdeenshire council state, per the Telegraph.“To facilitate the transformation and to effectively run the estate, new facilities will be required.
