Canada Post unveil new stamp of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth
Canada Post have unveiled a new stamp honouring Britain’s Queen Elizabeth.
A black and white portrait of the 89-year-old royal taken by British fashion photographer David Bailey has been used for the postal accessory, where he captured her with what he describes as “very kind eyes” and a “mischievous glint”.
In the picture, she is wearing a dress chosen specifically by her senior dresser, Angela Kelly.
Canada Post also unveiled five other stamps of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country including the Rideau Canal in Ontario and Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump in Alberta.
Meanwhile, the Queen recently held an audience for the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at Buckingham Palace.
During his time in London, he recalled his meetings with the Queen as a young boy when his father Pierre was the country’s leader.
He said: “She was always lovely and gracious. She was very tall, which points out how little I was at the time … There were lunch hours where I wouldn’t eat at school because we had to rush home to have lunch with the Queen.”
