According to a Telegraph report, the technology was designed by London-based Treatment Studio, which usually helps produce special effects for performers including Adele and Sir Elton John.

On Sunday, thousands of people thronged through central London to witness a colorful street pageant celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s life and highlighting Britain’s diversity. The parade also featured a cast of 6,000 performers, including dancers and an array of celebrities. Sunday marked the final day of the long holiday weekend honoring the queen’s 70 years on the throne.
In a statement issued shortly after, the monarch said she had been “humbled and deeply touched” by the turnout for her Platinum Jubilee celebrations and “inspired by the kindness, joy and kinship that has been so evident in recent days”. “While I may not have attended every event in person, my heart has been with you all; and I remain committed to serving you to the best of my ability, supported by my family,” she added.
