Australian Monarchy Play

The Founding Fathers of the Australian Federation ensured that the power and authority of the nation would be vested in The Crown. But they made The Crown subject to the will of the people by ensuring that the Constitution could only be changed by the people and not by politicians themselves.

In Her Majesty's own words:
"I shall continue faithfully to serve as Queen of Australia under the Constitution to the very best of my ability, as I have tried to do for the last 48 years. It is my duty to remain true to the interests of Australia and all Australians as we enter the 21st century. That is my duty. It is also my privilege and my pleasure.
Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia, 20th March 2000
