I swore allegiance to the Queen when I became a Canadian citizen decades ago.
I like the fact we are part of The Commonwealth and of an old-fashion tradition. I like to see the face of the Queen in our currency, she’s been a great leader for what feels like centuries, BUT only her.
That said, I’m hating this new Canadian commemorative coin for Prince Harry and Meghan Whatever’s wedding…
I seriously don’t get the excitement of it. Okay, old people like me know Harry since he was a kid, and maybe that makes us nostalgic, but her… I know she’s an actress but I’ve never seen her in any film or show.
I have no idea how relevant she is, but all the buzz about it it’s pretty ridiculous.
Apparently the awful coin is edged in maple leaves, English roses and shells from Prince Harry’s coat of arms. It also features three Swarovski crystals to represent Markle’s three-stone engagement ring… It costs $104.95 and can be ordered from the mint’s online store at http://www.mint.ca and by phone.
One word: Meh!
364 days of the year I’m proud to be Canadian, but today was that exception.
