The Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen Tours Nova Scotia, 1951-2010


Jubilee - 201211090

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, 2 June 1952 - 2 June 2012, we are pleased to present here a virtual exhibit recalling the highlights of five Royal Visits to Nova Scotia over the last six decades.

Nova Scotians have a long-standing admiration and affection for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The documents and tour memorabilia presented in this virtual exhibit showcase the protocol requirements and attention to detail that are part of every Royal Tour. The selection of digitized photographs, on the other hand, is a vivid reminder that every time the Queen visits Nova Scotia, even in this very modern 21st century, we welcome her with pleasure and respect — and even a bit of excitement still — thereby honouring the links that have bound our land to hers for over three centuries.
