A Royal Couple in Canada: Official Visits by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip


Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, have been part of Canadian history for over half of the country’s existence as an independent nation. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh officially visited the country twenty-two times, greeting countless Canadians at hundreds of events in towns and cities. At every stop, Canadians have proudly revealed their best, showcasing the immensity and diversity of their country—and the affection and loyalty they have for their monarch. A Royal Couple in Canada is a scrapbook of those tours, set in the context of Canada’s growth as a nation. It also peeks into the intense organization behind each visit. Stunning photographs, both candid and formal, offer a glimpse of more than 65 years of royal dedication to Canada. This volume is a fitting tribute to Canada’s royal couple, as we celebrate the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022).
