Royal fans have been delighted to see a hologram of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II waving to crowds from her historic Gold State Coach.

The iconic carriage was first commissioned back in 1760 for King George III’s coronation. It has been used in every coronation of a new monarch ever since, including Queen Elizabeth II's back on June 2, 1953.

Over the weekend, the Queen and the rest of the UK have been celebrating her 70-year reign on the throne, as street parties, concerts, and other events have taken place up and down the country.

In London on Sunday, the Gold State Coach featured in the special Platinum Jubilee parade, with archival footage of the Queen waving from its windows being projected to those lining the streets.

Check out footage of the Gold State Coach and hologram below:

Per the Metro, Her Majesty is not present in the royal box for today's Platinum Jubilee Pageant due to mobility issues. The 96-year-old monarch has been forced to miss several events over the four-day weekend.

Nevertheless, fans cheers as they caught a glimpse of her 25-year-old self waving to them from inside the carriage.

Per CNN Style, the Gold State Coach was designed by Sir William Chambers - the architectural adviser to King George III - and constructed by coachmaker Samuel Butler.

Adrian Evans, the Jubilee's pageant master, says of the historic Gold State Coach: "Everywhere you look, in the golden sculptures and painted panels, in the uniforms of the postillions, grooms, footmen, attendants and mounted guards, there is rich tradition and history."

It measures 12 feet tall and 23 feet in length. Made from gilded wood, the carriage weighs over four tons, and is usually drawn by eight horses traveling at a walking pace.

Today marks the carriage's first outing in public since Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee celebrations back in 2002.

Members of the Royal Family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, are all present in the royal box for today's events.
