Seven year old Holly had her wish granted to be a princess for the day, following a regal request to Rays of Sunshine, when she visited Dudley Zoo and was treated to the royal VIP experience.
The youngster, who attends Ashwood Park Primary School, travelled to Dudley Zoo where staff pulled out all the stops to make sure Holly and her family had a day to remember.
She received a royal tour of the zoo’s farmyard and had a meet and greet with the animals, before she was surprised with an adoption package for guinea pig, Rapunzel, aptly named after a Disney princess.
Holly said: “I loved meeting the animals especially Rapunzel, who was really friendly and cuddly and I can come back and see her now as I’ve adopted her.”
Her mum, Julie-Ann Perks, added: “Holly had a fantastic day. She loves anything to do with princesses and is animal mad so the day was just perfect for her. She didn’t stop smiling the whole time.”
