Elephant goes bananas for royal treats

By Peter Cary

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh tried their hand at zookeeping as they fed bananas to an elephant at Whipsnade Zoo.

The seven-year-old elephant, named Donna, was only too keen to whip her favourite treat from the royal couple's hands.

The visit was to celebrate the official opening of the Bedfordshire attraction's new £2m centre for elephant care yesterday.
