·2-min read

Images of the Queen have been projected onto the skies of Switzerland, in tribute to the late monarch.

The moving project - titled Travelling To The Stars - The Queen Of England On The Way To Heaven - was created by Swiss light artist Gerry Hofstetter.

Set against the clouds in the night sky, photos included the Queen in a blue coat and hat holding hands with Prince Philip in his ceremonial military uniform, and a close up of the Queen wearing pink and laughing.

Hofstetter worked on the project in partnership with the British embassy in Berne, and previously worked with them to project royal images onto famous Swiss mountains during the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
