The City of Windsor joined hundreds of cities and towns across Canada Wednesday in paying tribute to the Reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest Reigning Monarch in modern history.

Mayor Drew Dilkens led off the celebration reading from an open letter sent to the Queen:

“Windsor has had the pleasure in hosting [Her Majesty] on two separate occasions and we remember with pride Your Majesty’s presence in our community in 1959 and again in 1984. While some 30 years have passed since your last visit, we can still recall your warm and caring manner and your display of appreciation for our city and its citizenry … On my own behalf, that of our City Council and our citizens, we forward our heartfelt best wishes in that you may enjoy many more years of health and happiness.”

Buckingham Palace has calculated that today, September 9, 2015, the Queen’s reign will surpass that of Canada’s other great Mother of Confederation, Queen Victoria.
