  • Monarchists Excited at King’s Australian Visit

    05 December 2023 · 1 reaction

    The Australian Monarchist League is delighted to learn that King Charles III, King of Australia, accompanied by the Queen Consort, will be visiting Australia in October 2024.

    This will be the first visit of King Charles as sovereign and we trust that the Australian and State governments will not restrict people being able to come out and welcome their new King as they did 70 years ago for the then new Queen, Elizabeth II.

    The visit will also be His Majesty’s first time, as King and head of the Commonwealth, at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in Apia, Tuamasaga, Samoa from the 21st to the 25th of October.

    Viewers of the ABC were rightly expecting their tax payer funded national broadcaster to provide an unbiased factual broadcast explaining the rich history of the coronation parts of which date back one thousand years.
