The Platinum Jubilee celebrations will take place from June 2-5.

Portraits of Queen Elizabeth II throughout her 70-year reign were projected onto Stonehenge ahead of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations. English Heritage, a charity which manages more than 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites, had announced that the 5,000-year-old stone monument in Salisbury, England, had undergone a temporary makeover to honor the 96-year-old monarch.

“We’ve brought together two British icons to mark the #PlatinumJubilee!” English Heritage wrote on Twitter, adding that each image was from a different decade of the Queen’s reign.

According USA today, the eight portraits displayed on Stonehenge include a photo of the Queen’s coronation in 1953, an action shot of her on horseback in the 1960s, an appearance at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2017 and more. The Stonehenge monument is one of many places across the country to honor the Queen’s seven-decade reign, which began when she was just 27.
