The Diamond Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II

Royal Visit 1959

HM Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip toured every Canadian province in 1959, visiting Nova Scotia on 31 July and 1 August. They flew from Charlottetown, P.E.I., to Trenton Airport near New Glasgow, where they met town officials, school children and members of the Royal Canadian Legion. Then they flew to Sydney, Cape Breton, where Prince Philip presented the Duke of Edinburgh Ship's Bell to the Westmount Sea Cadets Rifle Team.

Later, in the Halifax-Dartmouth area, they visited Dartmouth Town Hall and the Dartmouth Ball Park, attended a band concert on the Garrison Grounds, visited Camp Hill Hospital, dined with the Lieutenant-Governor, and viewed a Junior Bengal Lancers' riding demonstration. Queen Elizabeth presented Colours to the Royal Canadian Navy on the Garrison Grounds and formally gifted Queen Victoria's Royal Barge to the Maritime Museum of Canada. Prime Minister John Diefenbaker and Premier Robert Stanfield hosted a dinner in honour of the Royal Couple.
