    Regarding the survey, I mistakenly passed a question without answering it.

    Question: should HRH Charles be involved in controversial climate change debate?

    Answer: No.

    Why: a monarch does not enter into controversial, political debate. The Queen has maintained a magnificent 70 year reign, this being one reason – she has kept her place about ordinary political figures. If she entered debate, she comes down to the political level and loses her dignity.

    She has reigned by example not by political argument and distancing herself from a portion of her subjects.

    She is there for all her subjects, not just the ones who express her views.

    Sincerely, Anne Shirley

    They look just lovely, so glad we are honouring our beloved Queen and looking forward to purchasing them.

  • We reject the slur you made of our Queen. You need to apologize!

    We support the Queen of Australia and the Westminster system which has served and continues to serve our country very well. Any alternatives are inferior to Her Majesty and the Westminster system we are privileged to live under.

    This is why so many people want to come to live in Australia.

    You need to respect that!

    Petition Calling on Republic MP to Retract Slur on Queen

    The Honourable Matt Thistlethwaite MP, Shadow Assistant Minister for Financial Services and Shadow Assistant Minister for the Republic, posted on Tuesday 14 July 2020 on his Facebook “Today’s release in full of the Palace Letters confirm that Australia needs to begin another serious discussion about an Australian as our head of state – an Australian who acts is the interests of our nation and its people, not beholden to the advice, influence and interests of a foreign power.” [meaning that the Queen acts in the interests of a ‘foreign power ‘ with the inference that she is, herself, a 'foreign power']. Mr Thistlethwaite has also publicly repeated his claims on television and elsewhere.

    Please sign this petition calling on Mr Thistlethwaite to retract his unfounded and quite blatantly wrong remarks relating to the Queen of Australia as being a foreign power. The Queen and her successors will always, without question or doubt, act in the interests of Australia.



  • Petition to Protect Our Australian Way of Life

    Australians get to enjoy an amazing quality of life with family and friends.

    Our unique and long established Westminster system of government provides us with peace and prosperity, allowing us to enjoy time with family, privately help the less fortunate in the community, and invest for future generations.

    Australian Monarchist League is calling for a show of support from the Australian community to petition so we keep the current Australian Westminster system of government

    What makes Australia the best country on earth?

    People, families, and communities thrive in Australia. Where else in the world can citizens receive:

    Job and business opportunities
    Top level healthcare
    World class education
    Beautiful and diverse environment
    Security and regulation
    Affordable utilities
    Reliable infrastructure

    The Australian government provides us with all these things, it shows how efficient and effective our system of government is. 

    Why is the Australian government so successful while other countries struggle?

    The key difference is, Australia has its own unique Westminster system of government which contains a:

    Lower House
    (i.e. House of Representatives)
    Publicly elected
    Proposes policies and changes.


    Upper House
    (i.e. Senate)
    Publicly elected
    Reviews, approves and amends proposed policies and changes.


    (i.e. Crown's Representative)
    Takes control in exceptional circumstances.
    Prime Minister can petition the Crown to dismiss the Governor-General.


    The Lower House proposes policies, and the Upper House reviews, approves and can amend the proposed policies.

    This two-step process distributes the power amongst the politicians and allows for constructive debate and solutions that satisfy the wider community.

    The Governor-General’s role is to ensure this political process is working.

    How is Australia now under threat?

    The republican lobby groups are pushing to replace the Governor-General with an elected or appointed head of state that will likely belong to one of the two major Australian political parties.

    If one political party held a majority in the lower house and upper house, and also held the head of state, that political party could exploit their position to remain in power uncontested.

    It would be the beginning of political corruption and the end of Australia as we know it. 

    Sign the petition to show your support in keeping the current Australian Westminster system of government.
