Her Majesty in red

Queen Elizabeth celebrates Canada Day on Parliament Hill

Tens of thousands of Canada Day revelers have welcomed Queen Elizabeth to Parliament Hill today. Her Majesty, dressed in red for the occasion, arrived with Prince Philip in a horse-drawn carriage, with a mounted RCMP escort. The 84-year-old monarch received a 21-gun salute, fly-bys by CF-18 jet fighters, performances by the Snowbirds, and a march-past by the Guard of Honour. Quebec soprano Marie-Josee Lord sang “God Save the Queen.” The Queen’s last appearance in Ottawa for Canada was in 1997.
