The Platinum Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee year, 6 February 2022 - 5 February 2023, we are pleased to present here a virtual exhibit recalling the highlights of five Royal Visits to Nova Scotia over the last seven decades.

Nova Scotians have a long-standing admiration and affection for Queen Elizabeth and her late husband, 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 her’s for over three centuries.
