As flag-waving crowds looked on and Mounties stood guard, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip marked Canada’s 150th birthday with pomp and ceremony at Canada House in London, England.
The Queen and Prince Phillip were given a red-carpet greeting by Canada’s outgoing Gov. Gen. David Johnston and his wife Sharon at Canada’s High Commission in London on Wednesday.
The Johnstons were festively dressed for the occasion with the Governor General showing off his red and white socks with maple leaves and his wife clutching a maple leaf purse given to her by former Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s wife Laureen.
