Prince Philip was joined by Geri Halliwell to officially open the new tiger enclosure at London Zoo yesterday (20.03.13).
The pair unveiled the £3.6 million Tiger Territory, which houses Sumatran tigers Jae Jae and Melati.
Zookeepers hope the pair will breed in a bid to give the critically endangered species a boost, and Geri was smitten with the animals as soon as she saw them.
She wrote on her Twitter page: "Meet our tiger Jae Jae. Pussy cat, I love u. In my next life I want to look after animals. (sic)"
Before her day at the world-famous zoo, mother-of-one Geri admitted to feeling very tired and was worried she would slip up when she met Philip.
She tweeted: "I feel so sleep deprived ,(woke 5 am) I hope I don't say any thing stupid when I meet the tiger & HRH. (sic)"
