    The claims also revealed that Princess Anne's dog had allegedly drawn "a lot of blood" as it sank teeth into another pooch.

    The alleged dog fight appears to have had no casualties, with the insider confirming that the animal survived, but the attack itself left a lot of people at the event rather worried.

    On top of the terrifying amount of blood caused by the "frenzy", there had also been "a lot of screaming" at the Norfolk estate on Boxing Day last year.

    The insider, speaking to The Sun, said: "The Boxing Day shoot’s a huge family affair so Anne took along her dog. It ran across the field straight at the gamekeeper’s dog and latched on to its ear.

    "The Bull Terrier really went at it in a frenzy. It took a while to get the dog off the ear because it had really sunk its teeth in.

    "Everyone was OK in the end but the atmosphere was extremely tense afterwards for some time. A good few people questioned what if it had been Charlotte or George or any of the children instead of another dog?"

    It is not the first time Princess Anne has found herself in potentially hot water due to the actions of her pet pooches, with a court case levelling a dangerous dogs act at her in 2002.
