‘Travelling to the stars’: Images of the Queen projected into Swiss night sky

In tribute to the monarch, images of the Queen were projected onto the skies in Switzerland.

Gerry Hofstetter, a Swiss light artist, created the moving project entitled Travelling To The Stars: The Queen Of England on The Way To Heaven.

The photos were taken against the night sky and included Queen with Prince Philip, in a blue coat, hat, and close-ups of the Queen laughing and wearing pink.

Hofstetter was part of the British Embassy in Berne in the development of the project. He had previously collaborated with them to project images from the Royal Family onto the famous Swiss mountains during Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
