Elephants are said to never forget, and an elephant at Whipsnade Zoo in England will always remember being fed by Queen Elizabeth II.

Donna the Elephant received bananas from the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, last Tuesday to celebrate the opening of the new elephant centre.

Donna seems to smile when the queen gives her a banana, because how else to react when the queen gives you a snack?

Philip joined the party and offered a banana to the elephant.

Elizabeth and Philip also watched the elephant team file animal nails and perform other daily activities.

To formalize the opening of the new elephant centre, the queen unveiled a special plaque and received a bouquet of flowers from a young boy whose father works at the zoo.
