Photo: Royal Equestrian Statue Queen Elizabeth II Regina Canada

An equestrian statue of Queen Elizabeth II stands in the Queen Elizabeth II Gardens backdropped by the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in the City of Regina, Province of Saskatchewan in Canada.

The City of Regina in the Province of Saskatchewan in Canada was named for Queen Victoria (Regina, is a Latin word, of ancient Rome, meaning Queen).

Victoria's fourth daughter Princess Louise dedicated the city in 1882, she was the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 until 1883. Queen Elizabeth II is the great-great-great granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

The Queen, in regimental dress, sits side-saddle on her horse, as though she is reviewing the guards. Queen Elizabeth II Gardens is just one of the many beautifully landscaped areas around the Saskatchewan Legislative Building which overlooks Wascana Lake. In 1962 the Wascana Center was formed as a 2300 acre park where visitors and residents can visit the Legislative Building, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and the University of Regina and other interesting buildings.
