Britain's Princess Anne met with penguins during her tour of South Georgia.

The 65-year-old royal is currently visiting the British Overseas Territory where she came face to face with the creatures.

A tweet from the monarchy's official account captioned a photograph of the Princess Royal walking amongst the birds: "A Regal day for wildlife in South Georgia as King Penguins meet The Princess Royal! (sic)"

Whilst the country's government wrote on their account on the micro blogging site: "#Biodiversity abound and #penguins galore as The Princess Royal visits Gold Harbour #SouthGeorgia (sic)"

During her visit to the territory, which is in the middle of Atlantic Ocean, south east of South America, the Princess met with staff at the South Georgia Heritage Trust, which aims to protect the stunning landscape and heritage of the area whilst scientists discussed with the daughter of Queen Elizabeth about sustainability in the region.

A tweet from the government's account read: "The Princess Royal meets @SGHTcharitysite staff at the #SouthGeorgia museum ...

"Scientists talk to The Princess Royal about how their research contributes #sustainable #SGFisheries (sic)"

Earlier this week, Princess Anne opened the new Post Office on the island.
