A commemorative service for Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was held in Nova Scotia on Monday afternoon.

The multi-faith memorial service at Halifax's Cathedral Church of All Saints was open to the public.

Lt.-Gov. Arthur J. LeBlanc delivered the eulogy, offering condolences to the Royal Family, adding we all should strive to follow Her Majesty's example.

He also recounted meeting the Queen with his wife Patsy in the fall of 2017 after his installation.

"We were greeted by a warm, friendly, very engaged lady who was full of vitality, and whose knowledge of Nova Scotia was simply incredible," he stated.

Premier Tim Houston also delivered a tribute to the Queen, describing her a remarkable woman who lived an extraordinary life.

"For more than 70 years, she reigned with dedication and dignity," he said. "Her Majesty loved Canada and toured our country more times than any place outside of the United Kingdom."

"I know that her five tours of our province will be remembered by many Nova Scotians for generations to come.

The Queen and her late husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh visited Nova Scotia in 1951, 1959, 1976, 1994 and 2010.
