Queen Elizabeth leaves behind a legacy unmatched in history as the longest reigning British monarch. She served the people of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and ten other nations as monarch and Head of State from February 6, 1952 until September 8, 2022.

Throughout her reign, the Queen transformed the monarchy into a modern institution representing the United Kingdom on the world stage and turning each member of the ‘The Firm’ into cultural icons.

True North has compiled some of Queen Elizabeth’s most memorable speeches.

God rest the Queen. Long live the King.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
