Cathedral Arts presents Kevin MacLeod, Canadian Secretary to the Queen, speaking at a dinner lecture. His topic will be The Canadian Crown.
In 1992, Her Majesty The Queen invested him as a Member of the Royal Victorian Order (M.V.O.) for personal service to The Sovereign.A decade later, she promoted him to the rank of Lieutenant (L.V.O.) during the highly successful Golden Jubilee Visit and, in 2005, to Commander (C.V.O.) – the highest level available to Canadians. He is the only Canadian to have been promoted through all three ranks.
He is the author of A Crown of Maples/La Couronne canadienne, an overview of the Canadian Crown and constitutional monarchy in Canada, published by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
