The Queen, Patron of the Zoological Society of London, and The Duke of Edinburgh opened a new center for elephant care at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. They also visited Priory View, an independent living scheme for older residents, during their day of engagements in Bedfordshire.
Here's a bit of an unusual brooch selection: the Daffodil Spray, which might be part of a set of brooches given by The Sultan of Oman, is only on its fourth appearance. (Asking for two amethysts in a row would have been too much, I suppose.)
Something else to love: The Queen and The Duke feeding bananas to an elephant. It's the little things, you know.
That's Donna the elephant. The Queen also had a chance to check in on Elizabeth the elephant, who was born last year and was named after Her Maj in celebration of her 90th birthday. (Unsurprisingly, HM was very interested in the care of the elephants and quick to compare it to keeping horses.)
