Did you see the fantastic projections on Buckingham Palace last night? They’ll be there from 8.30 to 11.15pm, until 21 April if you want to see them in person.

Thousands of self-portraits by children from across the UK are being projected on to the front of the palace to form a montage image of The Queen, to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee.

Face Britain is a project created by The Prince’s Foundation for Children & the Arts and brought to life by PhotoBox to celebrate the nation’s children and young people in the lead up to The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.
