The Princess Royal was introduced to Giant Pandas Tian Tian and Yang Guang as she toured Edinburgh Zoo yesterday in her role as patron of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

The Princess visited both pandas and helped with the feeding of male Yang Guang.

Head of research at the zoo Iain Valentine showed her around the site and said she was very interested in the pandas.

He said: “She was very impressed that she was able to get up close with the pandas and feed them as well. It’s not something we can do for anybody but she was delighted to take part in that.”
