The actress dressed down for the outing in a baggy jumper and tracksuit bottoms, her flame hair loose and straight over her shoulders.

She showed off her natural beauty as she went make-up free, beaming widely as her mum filmed her with the elephants.

Julia also posted photos from the day to her main page, including a selfie of Maisie stood in the middle of her lookalike relatives.

With elephants visible in the background, all three women are smiling as they soak up the sunshine.

Maisie was then surprised with a giant chocolate cookie cake with a happy birthday message written in pink icing.

Although the trio visited the sanctuary yesterday, it’s Maisie’s actual birthday today – and her mum wrote a sweet tribute on Instagram to mark the day.

She penned: “Happy 20th birthday to our little Loobie @maisiesmithofficial 💗

“Glad you loved your elephant experience at @howlettspark yesterday 🐘 Enjoy the rest of your birthday celebrations 🎂🎁🥳🥂💗

Speaking about the elephant experience, Julia went on: “These beautiful elephants 🐘 are being integrated back into Africa next year, so hurry down to @howlettspark & see them before they go! It’s an absolutely amazing sanctuary for our endangered animals.”

And Maisie has been inundated with well-wishes from her friends and family all day, sharing many of the posts to her own Instagram Story.

The Strictly star first shot to fame at the age of seven after landing the role of Tiffany Butcher in EastEnders.

She has remained a fan favourite on the soap ever since, with regular breaks away from the screen during her younger years.
