This tribute to Queen Elizabeth II really rocks.
The 96-year-old British monarch was honored with portraits of her projected onto Stonehenge as part of the annual Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which this year celebrates her 70th anniversary on the throne.
The stones will feature eight portraits, including a photo from the Queen’s coronation in 1953, a picture of her on horseback in the 1960s, an appearance at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2017 and more.
“We’ve brought two British icons together to celebrate the #PlatinumJubilee! We projected eight portraits of Queen Elizabeth II onto Stonehenge,” said the organization that cares for the historic landmark, English Heritage, in a statement on Twitter. “Each image is from a different decade of the Queen’s reign.”
The 5,000-year-old stone memorial in Salisbury, England, will be one of many sites across the country to honor the Queen’s seven-decade reign, which began when she was just 27 years old.
Hers is the longest that a monarch has reigned in Britain and is commemorated with a four-day public holiday from June 2nd to 5th.
This year’s Platinum Jubilee made history when the Queen first sat at one of the kickoff events, a military parade on Thursday they’re calling Trooping the Colour. She will send three royal deputies in her place: Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince William.
The celebration concludes with a party at Buckingham Palace on Sunday.
