A portrait of Queen Elizabeth II has been projected at Stonehenge before her Platinum jubilee celebrations throughout her 70-year reign. The English Heritage, a charity that manages more than 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites, announced that a 5,000-year-old stone monument in Salisbury, England, had received a temporary change in honor of the 96-year-old king.
“We’ve brought together two British icons for the #PlatinumAnniversary!” The English Heritage wrote on Twitter that each picture is of a different decade of the Queen’s reign.

Queen Elizabeth II was the first king to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee in the thousand-year history of the British establishment. In addition, she is Britain’s oldest and longest reigning monarch and the world’s longest-serving female head of state.
It will be celebrated in the UK with a four-day public holiday from 2 June to 5 June. The festivities will begin with the Queen’s Birthday Parade, an annual parade of royal officials, horses and participating musicians from the royal family, known as Trooping. The color celebration will end with a Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday, followed by a party at Buckingham Palace.
