The hen harriers were reported to have been killed on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk. There are now believed to be just 20 breeding pairs left on mainland England. Killing the birds could lead to a fine of up to £10,000 and six months’ jail.

The 23-year-old Prince, a bloodsports fan, was said to have been out shooting with a pal from the Van Cutsem family when the birds died last Wednesday evening. It was claimed they were the only people known to have been out shooting that night.
