Among all the ships, and flags, and (unfortunately) rain, during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant yesterday, did you spot the National Theatre’s salute to The Queen?

Joey, the puppet star of London theatre hit War Horse, galloped along the roof of the National Theatre and reared in salute to The Queen as she passed on the Royal Barge.

The Queen is well-known for her love of horses, and she seemed very pleased by Joey’s salute. Well done team National Theatre!
