Prince William in Australia
Panel discussion, Royal Visit - Studio 10 Print E-mail

With the Royal Visit just around the corner, Studio 10 hosted a panel discussion about #RoyalVisitAus (the upcoming Royal Visit) and the wider issue of changing from a crowned republic to some form of politicians' republic.

The panel, in addition to the hosts, included ACM National Convenor, David Flint, ACM Executive Director, Jai Martinkovits, ARM Executive Director, David Morris, Republican, Sonia Feng, Former Editor of Women's Weekly, Deborah Thomas, and Geelong Mayor, Darren Lyons.

Highlighting that, in terms of the constitution where the Crown is at the centre, Professor Flint reminded viewers that the Crown is important not so much for the power that it wields, but the power that it denies the politicans. With the arms of government being so close in Australia, it is important to have a checks and balances. Whatever our fascination with the Royal Family, it's the system that is important, he added.

When asked what's wrong with a being a fully autonomous nation, Jai Martinkovits noted that our crowned republic is already fully autonomous. Immigrants have adopted as their own our fundamental institutions and we have built a very successful nation on that basis, he added. It would be an ill conceived proposal to simply dispense with what we've got, unless you're going to replace it with something better - and we're not seeing that coming from the republicans any time soon.

The Ultimate Royal Guide - Women's Weekly Print E-mail

Yesterday, David Flint and I joined a Studio 10 panel with former Women's Weekly Editor, Deborah Thomas, to discuss the upcoming Royal Visit. Ms. Thomas revealed the April edition of Women's Weekly, which includes a spectacular feature "The Ultimate Royal Guide".

A copy of this beautiful magazine may be purchased at your local newsagency - but readers should be quick to acquire their copy, as it will be sure to run out.

The Women's Weekly said it was thrilled to offer ACM supporters a high resolution image of its April front cover, as well as the following comments from Deputy Editor, Juliet Rieden, who is covering the Royal Visit.

"Here at The Weekly royal fever is building as we gear up for the most anticipated royal tour of the century, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince George on Australian shores.

Ahead of the tour our Deputy Editor and Royal Correspondent Juliet Rieden received a special invitation from Kensington Palace to spend a week on the royal rota with the Duchess of Cambridge on her home turf in London. The resulting story is in our April issue, on sale now with its retro-style cover featuring an achingly cute Prince George and gives a rare insight into the brave new world of The Duchess of Cambridge.

Juliet will also be following every step of the tour here in Australia reporting live on aww.com.au and with a full story in the May issue of The Weekly and a behind the scenes report in the second edition of our ROYALS magazine out on July 7."

Prince William, Catherine and & Prince George in Australia and New Zealand Print E-mail

Prince William, Catherine with baby Prince George will be in Australia from 16 to 25 April, after a visit to New Zealand.

On their first full day in Australia on 17th April William and Catherine - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - will visit the Blue Mountains, to the west of Sydney where they will meet some of the families affected by the bushfires which swept through the area in October last year.

They plan to spend the day there to ‘see for themselves some of the natural beauty for which the Blue Mountains are famed.’   

 

 

 

Good Friday will be include a visit to the Royal Easter Show at Sydney's Olympic Park. Attracting almost 1 million people over 2 weeks, the show is a celebration of the nation’s rural traditions.

The next day, the Royal couple will attend the Easter service at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Sydney, where they will sign the ‘First Fleet Bible’ – the Bible used in the first Christian service held in Australia in 1788.

Following this there will be a visit to Taronga Park Zoo.

After a rest day on Easter Monday, 22 April, the Royal Couple, with baby Prince George, will fly to the centre of the Australian continent to Uluru, which is the traditional Aboriginal name for Ayer’s Rock.

There will be a “Welcome to Country” ceremony from members of the local indigenous communities.

The Royal Couple will fly to Adelaide and then to Canberra on 24 and 25 April to view the National Portrait Gallery as well as the National Arboretum, where they will plant a tree. Then a Reception will be hosted by the Governor-General at Government House in honour of The Duke and Duchess.

On their last day of the tour, the Royal Couple will attend the ANZAC Day March and Commemorative Service at the Australian War Memorial to mark the 99th year from the Anzac landings.

This will be followed the planting of a seed from a lone pine which was taken from the site of the Gallipoli battle.
