The Government of Canada has released the new official portrait of the Queen in honor of her ties to the Commonwealth of Nations.
The eye-catching new portrait, captured by photographer Chris Jackson, shows Queen Elizabeth II, 94, wearing both the Sovereign of the Order of Canada and the Order of Military Merit on her left shoulder as she looks off the camera.
It is now on display in government offices and schools across the country, as well as in Canadian embassies abroad.
In a Twitter statement today, Mr Jackson wrote: "It was an incredible honor to have the opportunity to photograph Queen Elizabeth II on behalf of the Government of Canada for her official Canadian portrait, released today."

The picture was taken at Windsor Castle in March 2019 and was officially released on Friday.
After the picture was released, social media users rushed to the platform to share their admiration for the portrait.
One user wrote: & # 39; Incredible! As a Canadian, thank you very much for this wonderful new portrait of Her Majesty! & # 39;
While another wrote: 'What a fantastic shot! Congratulations! & # 39;
Another person commented: & # 39; Oh WOW !! Congratulations, it's a majestic portrait! & # 39;
The portrait is released just a day after the Queen sent a reassuring message to Britain as she joined Prince William at the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) at Porton Down, near Salisbury.
Social media users congratulated Mr. Jackson's picture of the king, calling it a "majestic portrait".

During their visit, the Royals met scientists who worked after the 2018 Novichok attack and are supporting the UK's response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
During a meeting with experts at the facility, Queen Elizabeth responded to rising coronavirus levels, saying they were "expected" before adding the pandemic was "terrible".
But while the couple maintained strict social distancing and arrived separately by helicopter and car, neither opted to wear face coverings, even though the queen fell into the “at risk” age group.
The 94-year-old avoided wearing a mask, and Buckingham Palace confirmed it was a matter of choice rather than health concerns.
