“I shall be travelling from this
Northern Realm as Queen of Canada”

June 28th to July 6th, Canadians from coast to coast to coast welcomed home our Queen and her Consort

The embodiment of the Canadian state, Elizabeth II personifies the role of the Crown—which she identified in a 1973 speech to be seen as “all that is best and most admired in the Canadian ideal”.

During over 60 years of service, first as a princess and then as our sovereign, The Queen has shown she is “no fair weather friend”, but rather, as former Minister of Canadian Heritage Sheila Copps observed in 2002, The Queen's Golden Jubilee year, “a Sovereign, faithful and loyal to our people”, as well as one of the most internationally-known and respected figures in the world.

To send greetings to The Queen, email your message to, beginning by asking the Governor General to “please forward the following message to Her Majesty The Queen”.
