Melbourne celebrates the Diamond Jubilee Print E-mail

Friday, 03 February 2012

The City of Melbourne, the state government and Governor have no official plans to mark Monday's Diamond Jubilee, reports Carolyn Webb in The Age 3 February 2012, which came to us through the excellent Monarchist Alliance.

"But true believers are holding several private do's. Bryan Stertern-Gill, chairman of the Monarchist League in Australia's Victorian chapter, will attend a friend's private dinner in Melbourne for 40 people. The league is planning a bigger function for the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation in June 2013.

"Mr Stertern-Gill said a ''great many'' Australians cared about the jubilee. ''She's performed 60 years of sensational service,'' he said. ''I think she's a wonderful woman. She's dedicated her life to her job, and I have nothing but admiration for her as a person and the manner in which she's carried out her duties.''

"An education worker and keen monarchist called Stephen will hold an afternoon tea at work on Monday.

Staff will bring a ''show and tell'' of royal memorabilia and he has ordered a cake inscribed with ''ER II, 60 years, Diamond Jubilee, 1952-2012''.

"At the Hotel Windsor ballroom on Monday, 150 people, mostly from 12 local ''loyal societies'', and former governors-general Michael Jeffery and Peter Hollingworth will enjoy a $145-a-head, three course dinner. The societies include the Company of Armigers (coat of arms enthusiasts), the Australia-Britain Society and the English Speaking Union.

"The dinner organiser, Royal Overseas League president Jason Ronald, a Tallarook farmer, says we should toast the Queen.'

Thursday, 02 February 2012


Her Majesty celebrates her Diamond Jubilee of Accession in February 2012 and of Coronation in 2013.  She will have served as Queen of New Zealand and Australia and Head of the Commonwealth for 60 years.

Image

To mark this occasion St George’s Cathedral will hold a Festal Evensong on Sunday 5 February 2012 followed by a Champagne Reception on the Parvis. Attended by the Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency Mr Malcolm McCusker AO QC, Her Majesty’s representative in the State, this occasion also gathers the heads and members of Perth’s very many Royal associations and foundations.

Accession Day is also Waitangi Day, the national day of New Zealand, of which Her Majesty is Queen and Head of State. This Evensong therefore also marks the anniversary of the Treaty of Waitangi (1840) with members of the New Zealand community of Perth, the singing of the New Zealand national anthem, and prayers (in English and in Maori) for New Zealand and her people.

All are welcome.

Time: 5.00pm.

Venue: The Cathedral.  To find us, please click here.

Diamond Jubilee celebration in Brisbane Print E-mail

At 6.30 pm on Sunday 5 February, 2012, Candlemass, the 60th anniversary of the Accession of Her Majesty will be celebrated at a Diamond Jubilee Evensong and Benediction at All Saints' Church Wickham Terrace, Brisbane.

This historic church is the oldest existing Anglican Church in Brisbane. It was opened for worship on the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 8th September, 1869, replacing an earlier structure of 1862.

Its style is nineteenth century gothic revival, with buttressed walls of rough faced rubble, porphyry and sandstone, and a metal clad roof. The interior has a fine example of a hammer-beam roof, which is rare in Australia.

All Saints' Church has played no small part in the story of Brisbane's development into a city of culture and significance. Well-known identities who worshipped at All Saints' in the nineteenth century included Sir Robert Ramsey Mackenzie, Sir James Dickson, (both of whom served as Premiers of Queensland, the latter becoming Minister of defence in the first Commonwealth Government), Mrs Mary Peattie, and the Hon. John Douglas.

To this day, All Saints' is regarded by many as the "Parish Church of the City of Brisbane".

New South Wales  MP David Elliott has taken action to allow constituents to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.  

Image


A newspaper circulating in Mr Elliott's electorate of Baulkham Hills, the Hills Shire Times of 10 January, reported that if you wished  to pay tribute to the Queen on her 60 years on the throne, you could until Australia Day sign a card to her at Mr Elliott's office.  After Australia Day Mr Elliott would send the card to Buckingham Palace.  There was a similar report in another newspaper circulating in the electorate, the Hills News of 17 January.

Mr Elliott told the Hills Shire times "The Queen embodies all the best characteristics of our Commonwealth, devotion to country, devotion to the community and unity of all peoples under one banner.”

As the Diamond Jubilee celebrations will continue throughout the year, the British celebrations being in June around the Queen's Birthday, other Australian members of Parliament may wish to launch similar initiatives to Mr Elliott.
 




...David Elliott, monarchist...

Mr Elliott rose to the rank of captain in the Australian Army and was awarded the Australian service medal for his service in the peacekeeping force in Bougainville Papua New Guinea.  He was appointed ACM's National Campaign Director for the referendum campaign in 1999, reporting to me through the Executive Director Mrs Kerry Jones .  

For that he organised an hierarchical structure which reached into every federal electorate through ACM's State and Territory divisions.  At the time of the referendum, there were 55,000 rank-and-file supporters working for the no case.  In addition he was the executive to what was the ACM national “high command” which during the heat of the campaign, met every morning.

I remember being told by a person very high in the Yes case how admirable, effective and disciplined the No case was.  There were in fact two divisions of the No case.

TOur first celebration of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee will be in Sydney on Friday, 3 February at Parliament House, Macquarie Street Sydney.

Image

This is  to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty's accession to the throne on 6 February 1952.

Our keynote speaker is well-known to supporters of ACM and and as a legal and constitutional expert, to the general public.  She is Professor Ann Twomey, one of the leading authorities in Australia and the world in relation to matters concerning the Australian Crown.

Professor Twomey has spoken on several occasions to ACM, and on a number of matters.  In particular she has addressed the issues concerning the 1986 Australia Acts, and the fascinating relationship between the Australian states and the Crown. She has also spoken on possible changes to the succession, and on hung parliaments.

Her address on this occasion will  be particularly appropriate.  She will be speaking with particular reference to the  momentous changes agreed recently in Perth between the sixteen Realms  concerning the succession to the Throne.
