Monarchists Not Worried about Release of The Kerr Papers
The formal release of the Kerr papers will take place tomorrow morning at an event in the National Archives of Australia in Canberra at 10 AM.
The Australian Monarchist League is of the opinion that an inspection of the papers will clearly show that the Queen was in no way involved in the actual dismissal of the then Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, and that those who advocated otherwise should apologise.
Philip Benwell, National Chair of the Australian Monarchist League, said that the papers will undoubtedly show that Government House, Canberra was keeping Buckingham Palace informed of the evolving crisis. Mr Benwell went on to say “Informing the Queen’s secretary is in no way seeking instructions from Her Majesty and has nothing whatsoever to do with the British government. After all,” he said, “the Queen is Queen of Australia and it is her duty and right to be kept informed.”
Mr Benwell will be in attendance at the National Archives event in Canberra.
