Canadians rejoice in the coming eightieth birthday of Her Majesty later this month, and in her more than fifty years of service as Queen of Canada."

I'm not sure how much influence the GG even has over that, though.

She also referred to herself as Head of State not once, but twice in a speech at UNESCO in Paris, 2009:

"I, a francophone from the Americas, born in Haiti, who carries in her the history of the slave trade and the emancipation of blacks, at once Québécoise and Canadian, and today before you, Canada's head of state, proudly represent the promises and possibilities of that ideal of society."

Thanks Rudolph!

This was at Fairmont Hotel in Vancouver, Canada, 7 October 2002. And I really miss the days when the Queen still made speeches (she almost stopped in 2012, due her age).

Justin Trudeau will meet the Queen at Holyrood Palace ahead of the G20 summit.

He said: "Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's commitment to public service has long inspired me and many other Canadians.

"With this year marking the 150th anniversary of Confederation, I look forward to thanking her personally for her dedication to our country, and for carrying out her duties with such grace and strength."

I look forward to it and hope we get a video of the greeting, as we did last time he met her.

Beautiful portrait! I think out of all HM's brooches, if I had to pick one of them to borrow, even for a very short while, it would be her maple leaf brooch. Living in the Detroit area for most of my life, I've spent many, many happy times in Canada. Seeing the Canadian maple leaf always makes me a tad bit homesick.

Beautiful portrait of an amazing monarch.

The Queen's approval rating in Canada is now at 84% (almost as high as in the UK).

53% wants to end the ties with the monarchy when the Queen dies, but if we exclude Quebec, then there are a large majority for retaining it.

This poll from Ipsos Canada for Global News came out two days ago, but I forgot to post it - watch both videos for more information:

2 min video - The Prince of Wales and the duchess of Cornwall will arrive in Canada Thursday to take part in Ottawa’s big Canada Day celebrations. Charles and Camilla are here because Queen Elizabeth — now 91 — is largely restricting her travel. But as our Chief Political Correspondent David Akin reports, if Canadians had their pick, they’d much prefer the Queen than her son:

3 min video - Darrell Bricker from IPSOS discusses a new poll that looks at Canadians attitudes towards the Royal Family:

Article with videos of both the audience and Trudeau's remarks:
Trudeau has audience with the Queen after receiving honorary doctorate in Edinburgh - Politics - CBC News
Quote:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he had a "warm and engaged conversation" with Queen Elizabeth during a private meeting in Edinburgh Wednesday.

In brief remarks outside the Queen's official Scottish residence, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Trudeau also said he offered the monarch the Canadian flag that flew above the Peace Tower on July 1, the 150th anniversary of Confederation.

"It was as it often is, as it always is, a warm and engaged conversation in which she displayed knowledge and interest on a wide range of global affairs and goings-on in Canada," Trudeau said. "It's always a pleasure to meet with her."

The Queen had a very good day...

She rode on a cute boat, she met a cute, posy-nibbling pony, and she met with (cute) Prime Minister Trudeau.
