    Her Majesty The Queen was christened this day 89 years ago in the private chapel of Buckingham Palace. Her godparents included a former Governor General of Canada, her great-grand-uncle Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught. The Duke was the third son of Queen Victoria and the first member of the Royal Family to become a Governor General of Canada.

    After the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, an Act was passed by the Parliament of Canada establishing an annual legal holiday on May 24 under the name Victoria Day. An amendment to the Statutes of Canada in 1952 established the celebration of Victoria Day on the Monday proceeding May 25. Victoria Day is now the day when Canadians mark the birthday of our current sovereign, regardless of the actual calendar date.

    On February 6, Her Majesty began the 63rd year of her reign as Queen of Canada. To date, the longest reigning British monarch is Queen Victoria, who was on the throne 63 years and 216 days. To mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, a stained glass window was commissioned showing the two sovereigns under a single Canadian Crown. http://www.parl.gc.ca/About/Senate/jubilee/window-e.htm

    On February 6, 1952, Princess Elizabeth—who was vacationing in Kenya—received the news her father George VI had died. The 25-year-old Princess automatically succeeded to the throne as Queen Elizabeth II. Today, Her Majesty begins the 63rd year of her reign. As of September 10, 2015, Her Majesty will exceed Queen Victoria’s reign of 63 years and 216 days to become the longest reigning monarch in Canada’s history. Because Canada’s Governor General was unavailable at the time, it was Chief Justice Thibaudeau Rinfret who made the proclamation of Her Majesty’s accession.

    Did you ever wonder why some Canadian civilian organizations are allowed to use the prefix “Royal” as part of their name? The title “Royal” is a sign of honour and distinction. The granting of this distinction is a prerogative of the Sovereign; it is very sparingly granted and strict standards are applied. The latest organization in Canada to be granted this title is the Royal Western Canada Aviation Museum, which qualified for the designation in 2014.

    Vice Admiral Laurence tours the Battlefield of Crylser’s Farm in Morrisburg, where he will view displays, meet children in period uniforms, observe historical re-enactors, and discuss the battle with representatives of the Aboriginal community and participating regiments. The Battle—fought on November 11, 1813—saw Aboriginal, Canadian and British forces work together to repel an invading American army and win the field, despite being outnumbered. The victory at Crysler’s Farm turned the tide of the war.
