  • The Canadian Government has just released the queen's official Canadian portrait.
  • Canada is a Commonwealth Nation, and Her Majesty is Head of the Commonwealth, technically making her the country's reigning monarch.
  • In the portrait, taken in March 2019, the queen looks regal in a white dress and diamond and saphire tiara.


An official portrait of Queen Elizabeth, taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson, has just been revealed.

The Canadian Government released the queen's official Canadian portrait, which sees the queen pose in a white dress with her Canadian insignia as Sovereign of the Order of Canada and the Order of Military Merit, reports People.

Canada is a Commonwealth nation, and although all member states are free and equal, Her Majesty, of course, is still the Head of the Commonwealth.

In the portrait, the queen wears a diamond and sapphire tiara with matching jewellery – the necklace and earrings, known as the 'King George VI Victorian Suite', were given to the queen as a wedding gift by her father, King George VI.

She wore said jewels during a tour of Canada in 1990.

Chris Jackson shared the portrait taken in March 2019 on Instagram saying it was an "incredible honour" to photograph the queen.

"I've been lucky enough to have visited Canada many times now with members of the Royal Family and have the fondest memories of the people I've met and the incredible, vast and beauty country that I've been privileged to get to know a small part of over the years,[sic]" he added.
