Her Majesty Reviews the Fleet and Marks the Centenary of the Royal Canadian Navy

Queen Elizabeth II's Canadian standard flies from H.M.C.S. St John's on June 29, 2010 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Her Majesty embarks H.M.C.S. St. John's. Bosan Mate: Pipe the Side!

Royal Salute and God Save the Queen!

Prince Philip wears the uniform of a Canadian Admiral. Nice to see the restoration of the executive curl. Shame to see the Duke demoted. Canada has never had the equivalent of an Admiral of the Fleet or Grand Admiral, the honourary rank of His Royal Highness in Britain. Prince Philip seems a little naked without his traditional Royal Navy fourth ring and fourth row of buttons.

3 Cheers for the Queen: Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Horray!
