Prince William and Prince Harry have taken a secret short break in Spain - to hunt wild boar.

The brothers, who are second and third in line to the throne respectively, flew out to stay on one of the largest and most exclusive hunting estates in western Europe at the weekend.

Nestled in Finca La Garganta on the border of Castilla La Mancha, the estate is owned by the Duke of Westminster, Gerald Grosvenor.
