A PENGUIN named after Prince Philip has taken up residence at Bournemouth's Oceanarium.

Philippa, aged three, moved into the popular aquarium shortly after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

And she is said to be settling in well.

She joined the Oceanarium's penguin family as two members left for new lives in Surrey.

Alfie, who was born at the Oceanarium in 2019, and five-year-old Bilbo, who moved in in 2016, have moved to BirdWorld in Farnham.

A spokesman for the Oceanarium said: "The reasons for this transfer were to help maintain genetic diversity in captive colonies as well as to balance sex ratios so that everyone has a chance to breed.

"All penguins are settling in very well in their new homes."

The Oceanarium is currently closed to the public due to coronavirus restrictions but a re-opening date is due to be announced shortly.
