Queen Elizabeth took control of the Sandringham estate from Prince Philip and decided to cede it to Prince Charles according to a recent report.
The move comes shortly after the royal family were accused of endangering an owl’s life with their ‘illegal’ trapping mechanisms.
This report was also unearthed by Rota royale welcomes Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson. They spoke at length about the owl death incident and told listeners: “The Queen runs an estate in Sandringham, and it is a working estate, as Buckingham Palace tells us. On this site, they have traps to protect game birds pheasants and partridges. These traps caught an owl, which is a protected species. The traps killed him and the police had to look into this whole issue. ”
At that time Ms Robinson joined in and said, “There was a photograph of one of the owls that was caught in these traps, it’s called a fenn trap. Fenn traps are illegal, but they can be used for specific types of species. They can be used for squirrels, rats and other things, but they cannot be used if they are going to kill stoats and owls because they are in danger.
“In fact, I was told, when I did some research on this, that there were two pairs of little owls living in this particular area of Sandringham.
