If there is one thing that characterizes the British Royal Family, it is the strict protocol and customs that it has followed over the years. However, everything seems to indicate that King Charles III A tradition that has been followed for years without question is about to change..

This change of route originates in the midst of the crisis that the English monarchy is experiencing with the illnesses of the monarch and his daughter-in-law, Kate MiddletonHowever, the decision of the head of the British crown has not escaped controversy, as there are those who suggest that it was due to social pressure. Here we tell you what it is about.

What tradition will Charles III not follow?

According to information in the British media, Charles will stop providing royal patronage to two associations dedicated to pigeon racing, a hobby of the Windsors that his mother did support at one time, Isabel II.

But to better understand this custom, we must go back to 1886, when King Leopold II of Belgium gave Queen Victoria a gift of carrier pigeons. From then on, the British Royal Family became fans of pigeon racing.

While this sport in which carrier pigeons are released from a specific point and must return to their respective lofts as quickly as possible is very popular and practiced in various parts of the world.

On the other hand, pigeon racing, also known as pigeon racing, also became more popular in the United Kingdom thanks to the fact that Queen Victoria’s successors, from Edward VII to Elizabeth II, supported this sport.

Although things seem to have changed now that he has assumed the throne of England, as King Charles has refused to assume the royal patronages of a couple of organisations.

One of these is the Royal Pigeon Racing Association, which is responsible for these races on British soil, and the other is the National Flying Club, which is the main club in the United Kingdom. And although the real reason for this decision is not known, everything seems to indicate that it was due to pressure from rights groups such as PETA.

Let us remember that this organization has been pressuring the monarch for some time to stop supporting this type of sport that many consider to be cruel treatment or mistreatment of these birds.
