Queen Elizabeth II Wishes Happy Canada Day
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II shared a message on her social media platforms to wish a very happy Canada Day to all Canadian.
Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada) is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of July 1, 1867, the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.
On this day 10 years ago, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh attended Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa, celebrating the “extraordinary warmth and enthusiasm of the people of Canada”.
Her Majesty has visited Canada more than any other country during her reign, calling it her ‘second home’.
Today, @CanadianUK will celebrate Canada’s 153rd birthday with #LoveFromCanada – a virtual show of Canada’s talented artists, rich culture & core values.— The Royal Family (@RoyalFamily) July 1, 2020
