Olympic champion cyclist Laura Kenny has received her latest gong at Buckingham Palace.
She was among a host of Olympians collecting their royal honours in recognition of their achievements in Rio last summer.
The former Welwyn Wheeler was made a CBE as was her husband and fellow Olympic champion Jason Kenny.
The Queen was introduced to her young namesake - an eight-month-old elephant called Elizabeth - as she became zookeeper for a day in Bedfordshire.
Staff at Whisnade Zoo told the royal visitors the calf was "doing wonderfully in the herd" and was quickly learning how to work with the keepers - including having her teeth checked.
After getting a tour of the new care centre, which she officially opened, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh headed outside to feed one of Elizabeth's companions, Donna.
The seven-year-old cow seemed very keen to get her trunk of the bananas - quickly grabbing one from the Queen's hands.
She twice had to be pointed in the direction of the Duke after trying to seek out more treats.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have arrived at Whisnade Zoo in Bedfordshire - and have quickly got the elephants on side.
The pair have been feeding some of the nine Asian elephants housed in the new Centre for Elephant Care at the Zoological Society of London site.
After carefully offering some bananas, the Queen was snuffled by Donna, one of the youngest members of the herd, who was keen for some more.
Baby elephants at a Bedfordshire Zoo - including one named in honour of the Queen - are ready to receive their royal visitor.Read the full story ›
