PRINCES William and Harry are no strangers to Andalucia having visited the region on several occasions in recent years.
Now the pair have returned once again, spending a weekend hunting wild boar on an exclusive estate near Cordoba.
The Royal brothers are enjoying some quality time together to celebrate the end of Harry’s advanced helicopter training.
The third in line to the throne is due to be based at RAF Wattisham in Suffolk and could be posted to the frontline in Afghanistan later this year.
The trip is also something of a send-off for William before the future King heads overseas for a six week placement in the Falklands.
The pair shot wild boar and stags at the exclusive Finca La Garganta, near the village of Conquista, on the border of Castilla La Mancha.
The estate is owned by the Duke of Westminster, Gerald Grosvenor, Britain’s third-richest man and one of William’s godfathers.
William, 29, flew to Sevilla last Friday, while 27-year-old Harry arrived at Cuidad Real Central on a private jet.
The princes stayed in a ten bedroom villa, one of three luxurious hunting lodges on the sprawling 15,000 hectare estate.
Contained within the 40 mile perimeter – patrolled by armed guards in 4x4s – the Finca has its own private train station, petrol station and accommodation for 100 staff.
The brothers have visited the estate in the past, with the Duke of Cornwall believed to have visited with his then girlfriend Kate Middleton, a couple of years ago.
Last time the princes visited the estate they were said to have shot an incredible 740 partridge on a single day.
When contacted about their current visit, a Clarence House spokesman said: “We cannot discuss the movement of the princes as they are on a private weekend.”
