With the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II celebrating the fact that she is the first British monarch to reign 70 years on her throne, English Heritage found themselves paying tribute by projecting the monarch’s face on the sides of the iconic Stonehenge historical site.

The Stonehenge, which is a 5,000-year-old historical artifact made up of 13 feet tall sarsen stones, found itself catering to the celebration of the Queen’s reign by projecting photographs from each of the Queen’s seven decades, according to CBS affiliate WRBL.

“We've brought two British icons together to mark the #PlatinumJubilee! We’ve projected eight portraits of Queen Elizabeth II onto Stonehenge,” English Heritage, who maintains Stonehenge, said. “Each picture is from a different decade of The Queen’s reign, illuminating the ancient monument’s iconic façade in a spectacular display.”

The photos that were shown in the tribute included her coronation in 1953, as well as a shot of her riding a horse in the 1960s, and her appearance in 2017 during the Royal Windsor Horse Show, USA Today reported.

The Queen, who is 96 years old, is the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She assumed the throne on February 6, 1952, after her father’s death, with her coronation occurring in June of the next year.

Meanwhile, Prince William finds himself on the side of a new £5 coin in celebration of the future monarch’s 40th birthday, with many comparing it to a picture that was taken of him in 2016, according to Marie Claire.

The engraver has specified that he wanted the coin to capture William’s “fresh energy” whilst balancing it out with William’s experience of “being a young dad with the ceremonial nature of his Royal position.”

“Even though our lives are a million miles apart, I understand how it feels to have just turned 40 and to have a young family of my own, so I wanted to ensure I captured His Royal Highness accurately at this stage in his life,” engraver Thomas T. Docherty, who helped make the coin, said.
