Queen’s Diamond Jubilee portrait installed at Manitoba Legislative Building as part of cross-country tour

Submitted by the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba

Lt.-Gov. Janice C. Filmon is pleased to announce the Diamond Jubilee Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – currently undertaking a cross-country tour – was installed at the Manitoba Legislative Building on May 3.

Since leaving Rideau Hall in September 2018, the portrait has been on display in St. John’s, N.L., as well as Fredericton, N.B. It will remain on display at the Manitoba Legislative Building until May of 2022. Her Majesty will also celebrate Her Platinum Jubilee in 2022, marking 70 years since her accession to the throne.

This initiative coincides with renovation work being done in the ballroom at Rideau Hall by the National Capital Commission. The tour will allow for more Canadians to see the painting in person, and is meant to honour and pay tribute to Her Majesty’s ongoing and unwavering service. Her Majesty is in support of this project.

The portrait will not be on public display until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, allowing for public tours of the building to resume.

Background information, photos, as well as a time-lapse video of the portrait’s arrival and installation, is available on the lieutenant-governor’s website at www.manitobalg.ca.
