One of the two elephants rescued by HSH Princess Stephanie in a blaze of publicity five years ago, has died of kidney failure.

“Nepal has left us following a chronic renal failure. She fought to the end with caring and dedicated care. Thank you all for your support,” the Baby and Nepal Association said in a Facebook post on Sunday, April 29.

After the Princess rescued the two elephants, which had been neglected by a series of owners and were in danger of being put to sleep, they were installed in tailor-made facilities at Fontbonne, overlooking Monaco. Veterinarians in Monaco certified that the two animals were in good health.
