Commissioners of Canadian territories do not represent the Queen, but the federal government, and are not included. In the Realm of New Zealand, the Cook Islands have a separate Queen's Representative. Niue is entitled to one, but, under the Niue Constitution Act, the Queen is represented by New Zealand's Governor-General.
