The King and I:

Royalty Among Us

This exhibit features the history of royal families visiting and living in Toronto and the GTA. The idea of royalty may conjure up parades, holidays, street names, and picture taking. Does it also make you think of the numbers of royalty from afar who live in the Toronto region? From showcasing the estimated twenty tribal queens and chiefs from Ghana residing here, to the theatre built to honour Princess Diana, this exhibit will showcase Toronto’s royal ties.
