2019 QUEEN ELIZABETH II First Day Cover
Pay tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her famous Canadian Maple Leaf brooch with this Official First Day Cover. The Queen has graced more than 70 Canadian stamps.
The photo was taken during the 2010 Canadian Royal Tour, the Queen is shown wearing her iconic Maple Leaf brooch. King George VI gave the brooch to the Queen Mother in 1939, to mark the couple’s first Canadian Royal Tour. Queen Elizabeth II (then Princess Elizabeth) later wore it during her first Canadian Royal Tour in 1951. The tradition of wearing the brooch on a first royal tour of Canada has continued through generations with the Duchess of Cornwall doing so in 2009, followed by the Duchess of Cambridge in 2011.
