This happened. @WWF revokes Honorary Presidency from King of Spain after learning he killed an elephant.

(via Google Translate): "Although such hunting is legal and regulated, has been considered incompatible, for many of its members, with Honorary Presidency of an international organization like WWF defense of nature and the environment and one of the most efforts and resources dedicated to the conservation of endangered species. For this reason, the Governing Board of WWF Spain had agreed unanimously to start the process for holding a Special Meeting in which its members could decide on whether to keep or delete Article of the Statutes regarding the Honorary Presidency occupied by King Juan Carlos since the founding of the organization in 1968. The 94% of the partners of WWF Spain voted for the abolition of the figure of Honorary President."
