PIPPA Middleton was all smiles as she posed for a picture with friends at a shooting trip at an estate near Edinburgh.
Ms Middleton was photographed with companions after a hunt with 50 dead birds at their feet, including pheasants and partridges.
The photo, published on a public account on Instagram, was taken on Gilmerton’s Drum Estate.
However, the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister drew criticism from animal rights campaigners.
Queen guitarist Brian May, a vegetarian, led the criticism on Twitter, saying that he “struggled to understand the smiles in this picture.”
