JULY 1, 1967 -- ROYALS CELEBRATE CANADA'S CENTENNIAL -- There was a formal but tumultuous welcome for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip when they arrived on Parliament Hill in Ottawa for the morning ecumenical service on Canada's 100th birthday. The religious service, conducted by eight clergymen from various Christian denominations and the Jewish faith, began immediately upon her arrival. Her Majesty wore a long royal blue and white dress embroidered in a maple leaf design in diamonds and sapphires, with a diamond-fringe tiara, the blue sash and star of the Order of the Garter and family orders. Prince Philip was dressed in the uniform of colonel-in-chief of the Royal Canadian Regiment. Photo by John McNeill / The Globe and Mail Originally published July 3, 1967, page A8.
