Morrissey has written an open letter criticising Prince William for going on a hunting trip the day before launching a campaign to save endangered animals.

In a post on fansite/ portal to Moz he called the Duke of Cambridge a "thickwit".

Prince William and his father appeared in a video message yesterday calling for the world to protect rhinos, elephants and tigers.

However it then emerged he spent the day before hunting wild boar and stags on a private estate in Spain with his brother, Prince Harry.

Unsurprisingly the news has outraged committed vegetarian Morrissey.

"Although William's speech (no doubt written by his publicity aides at Clarence House) will concentrate on endangered species, William is too thickwit to realize that animals such as tigers and rhino are only driven to near extinction because people who are precisely like himself and his brother have shot them off the map - all in the name of sport and slaughter," the be-quiffed one penned.

"The rationalists amongst us" could "only pray to God that their hunting guns backfire in their faces".
