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.'

 

''It's hard to think of anyone else who's been in the same job for 60 years and carried it out so well and with such grace and dignity,'' he said.

''The system of government we have has served us very well, due in no small part to the person who is our monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, and I think people want to pay tribute to her.''
