The King and Queen have just completed their five-day state visit to their African country, their first to a Commonwealth country since the King’s accession to the throne.
Whilst at the National Park on Wednesday, the Queen got the chance to feed an orphaned baby elephant today.
The royal couple watched a herd of orphaned elephants at play at the specialist wildelife centre.

Camilla was wearing a Liberty cotton elephant and peacock print dress by Fiona Clare with a pair of practical and clearly well-worn brown ankle boots.
As she was introduced to the keepers, many who had worked at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for decades, she said: ‘Everybody knows everybody, that’s so nice.’
The Queen was shown around by Angela Sheldrick, whose mother Dame Daphne founded the orphanage.
She was introduced to head keeper Edwin Lusichi, who has worked at the centre for more than 20 years, and the other keepers, before the baby elephant had a mud bath.
They explained that elephants often indulge in a mud bath to form a layer on their skin to protect them from insects and sunburn.

The King and Queen rounded off their state visit today, visiting one of Kenya’s most iconic monuments – and gamely posing in a Tuk Tuk, after Camilla joined into some spirited dancing with sexual violence survivors.
Charles and Camilla posed with the eco-friendly electric vehicle outside Fort Jesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, gamely hopping inside after the seats were carefully wiped down for them.
Told that the vehicle can reach speeds of up to 60kph, the couple widened their eyes and giggled – especially as their driver, Eunice Karanja, accidentally started the vehicle slightly.
The tuk-tuk – a widely used form of urban transport in Mombasa – is so named to mimic the sound of a small two-cycle engine.
But unlike the old models the new the electric alternatives offer a smoother ride with minimal noise.
This one had been covered with a traditional Kenyan print design and ‘GREAT’ branding, an international campaign to highlight the best of Britain.
Earlier, the Queen put on her dancing shoes as she showed support for volunteers and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
