HRH The Princess Royal met the world’s only knighted penguin

HRH The Princess Royal met the world’s only knighted penguin at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Edinburgh Zoo last week.

The wildlife conservation charity’s royal patron was introduced to Sir Nils Olav, who was knighted by the Norwegian Guard in 2008 following approval from King Harald V of Norway, and planted a tree on the site of the new giraffe enclosure being built as part of the Zoo’s new Big 5 fundraising campaign.
