Lemurs at Drusillas Park in East Sussex have been flying the flag in honour of Queen Elizabeth, who has become the UK’s longest serving monarch.
The Queen has overtaken her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria’s previous record of 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes on the throne.
To mark the historic milestone, the 13 furry patriots of Lemurland have been waving the Union flag.
In the lemur world it is always the dominant female who rules, so the troop is used to having a matriarch.
Clementine, the black lemur, is in charge at Drusillas and not only reigns supreme over her own family, she also heads up the nine ring-tailed lemurs at the zoo. Nevertheless, her rule pales in comparison to Queen Elizabeth’s at a mere 2,105 days to date.
