Hunting on Boxing Day morning
After Christmas day is Boxing Day, which was traditionally a day off for servants. Nowadays, it’s simply known as the day after Christmas, and for the royal family, it means picking up their rifles and going hunting. The men of the family will head out with rifles while the women typically stay behind. Hunting isn’t the main thing they do. This is about spending quality time with those dearest to them.
After the “hunt” is over, they’ll all gather in a cottage and enjoy beef bourguignon or venison stew. The men usually don’t bring back any carcasses, so the staff has to prepare their lunch for them.
