THE Duchess of Cambridge is to devour a gigantic moose during her official visit to Canada.
The Duchess and her husband will visit a moose sanctuary in Western Manitoba today where she will be invited to eat the magnificent beast with her bare hands.
Denys Finch-Hatton, editor of Royal Meat magazine, said: “It’s not without precedent. In 1951 the then Princess Elizabeth ran down a hippopotamus – on foot – and then ate it with a spoon.
“And of course, before she took up dog fighting, Princess Anne ate a crocodile.
“However, in the 21st Century we cannot expect a princess to wrestle a large herbivore to the ground, but we do need to know how quickly she can wolf down 44 stone of moose meat.”
Meanwhile, the Duchess is expected to wear a red dress with some frilly bits on it, though Royal insiders stressed that for most of the day it will be covered up with a large, rubber bib.
