Of course, someone's made a Queen's Jubilee optical illusion

You may have noticed that a certain royal is celebrating 70 years on the throne this weekend. People across the United Kingdom are celebrating in all kinds of ways, decorating their houses with bunting, hosting street parties or simply enjoying a bit of a lie-in – and for two days! But there's no time off for those that like to baffle us with mind-bending optical illusions, so what better way to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee than with an optical illusion featuring her Majesty herself.

It's not easy to get an audience with the Queen, but the makers of this Queen's Jubillee optical illusion claim that if you stare at the picture of Queen Elizabeth II below for a whole 60 seconds and then look away at a plain white background, the Queen will appear right before your eyes (if you're looking for more amazement this Jubilee weekend, make sure you check out our pick of the best optical illusions of the year so far, we're sure the Queen herself would like the magic rotating horse).
