Ambassador Goodale also told a reporter they are working on setting up a Royal Visit to Canada now.Over at Canada House, there was a considerable gathering of Canadians to watch the coronation on large television monitors, a gathering which included many Indigenous visitors. A witness to the proceedings, verified by another person present, reported that the most striking thing to happen during the live broadcast of the service was when the King was crowned and later during the playing and singing of God Save the King, Indigenous members in the gathering all stood in respect. Most of the non-Indigenous viewers stayed glued to their seats.This suggests interesting days to come in the story of Canada, especially when the King and Queen make their next visit.
