The Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador (pron.: /lɛfˈtɛnənt/) is the viceregal representative in Newfoundland and Labrador of the Canadian monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, who operates distinctly within the province but is also shared equally with the ten other jurisdictions of Canada, as well as the other Commonwealth realms and any subdivisions thereof, and resides predominantly in her oldest realm, the United Kingdom. The Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador is appointed in the same manner as the other provincial viceroys in Canada and is similarly tasked with carrying out most of the monarch's constitutional and ceremonial duties. The current, and 13th, Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador is Frank Fagan, who has served in the role since 19 March 2013.
Role and presence 
The Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador is vested with a number of governmental duties and is also expected to undertake various ceremonial roles. For instance, the lieutenant governor acts as patron, honorary president, or an honorary member of certain Newfoundland and Labrador institutions and ex officio is appointed as the Honorary Chief of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and Honorary Colonel of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. Also, The viceroy, him or herself a member and Chancellor of the order, will induct deserving individuals into the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador and, upon installation, automatically becomes a Knight or Dame of Justice and the Vice-Prior in Newfoundland and Labrador of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem. The viceroy further presents the Lieutenant Governor's Award for Excellence in Public Administration, the Newfoundland War Service Volunteer Medal, and numerous other provincial honours and decorations. These honours are presented at official ceremonies, which count amongst hundreds of other engagements the lieutenant governor partakes in each year, either as host or guest of honour; the Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia in 2006 undertook 418 engagements and 444 in 2007.
Standard of the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador
At these events, the lieutenant governor's presence is marked by the lieutenant governor's standard, consisting of a blue field bearing the shield of the Arms of Her Majesty in Right of Newfoundland and Labrador surmounted by a crown and surrounded by ten gold maple leaves, symbolizing the ten provinces of Canada. Within Newfoundland and Labrador, the lieutenant governor also follows only the sovereign in the province's order of precedence, preceding even other members of the Canadian Royal Family and the Queen's federal representative.
The office of Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland came into being in 1949, upon Newfoundland's entry into Confederation, and evolved from the earlier position of Proprietary Governor of Newfoundland. Since that date, 13 lieutenant governors have served the province. The shortest mandate by a Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador was Albert Walsh, from April to September 1949, while the longest was Leonard Outerbridge, from 1949 to 1957.
