The British Monarchy and the Canadian Forces are associated both constitutionally and ceremonially. Queen Elizabeth II, as the sovereign of Canada, holds the title of Commander-in-Chief of the Canadian Forces (a role expressly conferred to the Governor General), while she and the rest of the Royal Family hold honorary positions in the Army, Navy and Air Force, embodying the historical and special relationship between the Crown and the CF.
