Judith Guichon, the Merritt rancher who serves as B.C.'s lieutenant-governor, was in London Tuesday to visit the Queen.
Guichon had a 30-minute audience with Her Majesty, as is the custom for a representative of the Queen during the first year in office.
"I am honoured to represent Her Majesty in British Columbia so I was pleased I had the opportunity to meet our Sovereign and thank her in person for her dedication to public service," Guichon said after the visit.
"I was proud to share with Her Majesty some of the wonderful work British Columbians are doing across the province."
Guichon was also scheduled to join the Duke of York at the opening of the B.C. Trade and Investment Office for Europe, attend a dinner hosted by the high commissioner, and tour the Palace of Westminster.
