Answer . Because that's not the style; and if it were, it would be tautologous. All Majesties are Royal, by definition.. Majesty is a style enjoyed by a king/queen. Imperial Majesty is a style enjoyed by an emperor/empress.

The present (2008) Queen of Canada is HRH Queen Elizabeth II, head of the Canadian Royal Family, her full title being:. "Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith." . The an…cestral line of monarchs of Canada is divided in its early history, with Queen Elizabeth I of England claiming parts of some Canadian territories on 1583 , while other areas came under Kings of France. (Before colonisation, native indigenous North Americans exercised their own chieftainships / kingships over various territories of Canada.). The fifth monarchy after Elizabeth I was the co-regency of King William III and his wife Queen Mary II . So Queen Mary was the second Queen of Canada , from 1689 until she died in 1694. William died in 1702, being succeeded by his sister-in-law Anne , who was Queen from 1702-14 . Anne was the third Queen of Canada , although, as yet, Britain had yet to acquire dominion over all of Canada.. It is interesting to note that, in 1710, four native Canadian chiefs, three Mohawks and one Mahican, visited Queen Anne in England, on a diplomatic mission to request military aid to defend against the French.. In due course, by war and treaties through the 1700s, all the Canadian Colonies of France were eventually ceded to King George III of the United Kingdom. The third monarch after George III was Queen Victoria , Queen from 1837-1901 . She was the fourth Queen of Canada , but with a difference! In 1867 she confederated the colonies of Canada into a kingdom in its own right, and the four Canadian provinces became one country, the Dominion of Canada..

Canada was a British colony until 1867 and a British Dominion for many decades afterward. In simple terms, although they became independent, they decided to keep the Queen for tradition.
Her Majesty Victoria was the Queen of all British dominions in 1865. [Note: Any reference to Canada prior to July 1, 1867, means the pre-Confederation colony known as the Province of Canada. It was formed on February 10, 1841, by the Act of Union, which united the colonies of Upper Canada and Low…er Canada.] ( Full Answer )
Canada is a British commonwealth. They have their own government and laws, but also recognize the queen.
Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, is represented by the Governor General of Canada at the federal level (currently His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston ), and at the provincial level, the Lieutenant Governor of each of the ten provinces.
The Queen of the United Kingdom (which includes England) and the Queen of Canada are two legally distinct offices, which happen to be occupied by the same person. Neither office has any authority in the other's realm. On paper, the Prime Minister of Canada does answer to the Queen of Canada, sinc…e the Prime Minister is appointed and can be replaced entirely under the Queen's authority. However, several factors negate this authority in practice. The Queen is seldom in Canada and does not interfere when she is. Almost all of her authority and responsibilities in right of Canada are delegated to her federal viceroy, the Governor General of Canada. Thus, it is the Governor General who in practice appoints and replaces prime ministers. Further, centuries of convention, including the principle of responsible government , restrict the Governor General's ability to act independently. In order for the replacement of a Prime Minister to be politically viable, the House of Commons has to pass a motion indicating that it does not have confidence in the Government. If a Prime Minister believes such a motion will occur and cannot prevent it by asking the Governor General to prorogue or dissolve Parliament, he will usually resign preemptively in order to save face. As a result, the Prime Minister is ultimately responsible to the House of Commons, which is itself (in theory) responsible to the electorate . The Prime Minister is also responsible to his political party, since it is the support of his caucus (Members of Parliament belonging to his party) that allows him to be Prime Minister.

The Government of Canada does not pay the day-to-day costs , or the personal allowances, of the Queen. The Government does, however, pay all costs associated with the Office of the Governor General, and the Offices of the Lieutenant Governors, as the Queen's representatives at the federal and prov…incial levels. The Government pays the costs of the Queen when conducting royal tours of Canada, and when performing a function abroad that is exclusively as Her Majesty's role as Queen of Canada, and not as the head of State of the United Kingdom or the fourteen other Commonwealth realms.

The Governor General, David Lloyd Johnston, fulfills a ceremonial role for the Canadian People and our elected representatives via the Prime Minister of Canada. Though many do long for the days when we answered to Britain, our political references to the Queen and Royal stations are ceremonial only. Canada is independent from Britain politically.

Yes, if by Queen of Britain you mean Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the UK, Canada, and 14 other realms. However, though the Queen occupies a single office, her role in each country is legally distinct.

Queen Elizabeth II is the Monarch of Canada, which operates courtesy of the Canadian Parliament and Canada's governmental officers. Properly, according to Wikipedia: "The monarchy of Canada is the core of both Canada's federalism and its Westminster-style parliamentary democracy, being the fou…ndation of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Canadian government and each provincial government." ---------- Practically from experience: Not at all. The role of the Queen is purely ceremonial and represented by the Governor General, another completely ceremonial role. The GG is selected by the Prime Minister who is the leader of the political party with the most seats in the house. Canadians get to vote on the people and party that fills those seats. If the Queen or GG was to even make a comment about Canadian politics it would create a scandal. If they were to take any political action at all, even that which appears to be allowed, it would create a Constitutional Crisis and backlash that would likely see such ceremonial roles ended in Canada. Canada does not have a Queen or a monarch of any kind except in a ceremonial role to have consistency in our political systems. ( Full Answer )
Queen Elizabeth II, often colloquially referred to as "the Queen of England" though that office no longer exists, is the Queen of Canada, Canada's Head of State. She is also the Queen of 15 other countries which, together with Canada, are called Commonwealth Realms. The Commonwealth Realms share …an institution called the Crown, in which the Queen is the sole office holder. The Crown is vested with authority and ownership of property on behalf of each sovereign jurisdiction in the Commonwealth Realms. It exercises these independently, subject to the laws of the relevant jurisdiction and free from the interference of other jurisdictions of the Crown. As a result, the existence of the shared Crown does not impinge upon the sovereignty and independence of the Realms. Each Realm is also free to amend its constitution in order to leave the arrangement, if it so chooses. Every Realm other than the United Kindom has an official appointed by the Queen called a governor general who is constitutionally authorized to exercise some or all of the Crown's authority in that Realm on the Queen's behalf, and may have further authority in the Realm delegated to them by the Queen. The provinces of Canada and states of Australia have lieutenant governors and governors, respectively, who perform a similar role on the provincial/state level. All this is necessary because the Queen resides primarily in the UK and cannot effectively perform the role herself in every Realm and in each province and state. It also helps to ensure the independent operation of the Crown in each jurisdiction. ( Full Answer )

No. The queen has no authority over anything in the USA. ^ Incorrect. In todays world it doesn't matter where you are from, it just matters how much money you have. That is all thats important to any eurocentric left brained hemisphere favoring society (which europe AND the USA are). If you d…on't know what that means, this is the reason we have rich and poor in the same country (its about self and greed, not about that we are all one, attached to god, and bettering all mankind. that is the right brain hemisphere). Elizabeth has much money and wealth so it is very easy for her to be head or own it. She actually does (you will have to do some heavy research as why would the US government want that information out? just like they still say cannabis causes cancer and kills and don't believe it has any medicinal effect although over 14 states have medical marijuana that heals/cures/relieves symptoms from everything from cancer to diabetes, regulating/lower blood sugar, multiplesclerosis, shrinks/kills tumors and all cancers, stops parkinsons people from shaking etc. Also know the USA government gives cannabis legally to a select few who sued them for it under the compassionate IND program. its the program the usa federal government runs to give them over 300 cannabis joints a month to smoke from their own pot farm at the university of mississippi.) I said all that to say this. you cant trust nobody but yourself. dont ask websites like this where millions of people post. they just post whats on their mind, not the real truth. Most cant handle the real truth. They live as sheeple, going to church (which is also a lie) living 9-5 doing whatever they are programmed to do and believe from television (another lie). Do your own , ask your own, and attract those with true real knowledge. for there is no right or wrong, thats perspective. all there is is TRUTH. ( Full Answer )
Canada is, or was , a dominion of Great Britain . . . that makes her the queen of Canada, as well.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the Queen of Canada. The Canadian Crown exists separate and apart from the other Crowns. Her Majesty's ties to Canada are not merely ceremonial; they are fundamental and integral to Canada's Constitution.
Both Queen Elizabeth the first and Queen Elizabeth were born and raised in England and lived there all their lives seing as they ruled the country.
Canada has been Independant from Britain since 1867 and is still today, so technically speaking, Canada doesn't have a ruling sovereign queen. But, Queen Elizabeth still has shared rights (not political rights) over Canada, since Canada was once a British Colony.
Canada was classed as a Bristish Colony. In 1763 the British took until 1867. With the passing of the British North America Act in 1867, Canada became a Dominion in the British Commonwealth and John A. Macdonald became Canada's first prime minister. It remained a colony of Britain
