The Queen invests G-G Sir Peter Cosgrove Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Wednesday, 13 August 2014

On Tuesday, 5 August 2014 at Balmoral The Queen invested the Governor-General, Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC as a Knight in the Order of Australia. Prime Minister Tony Abbott (the first executive director of ACM) advised Her Majesty in 2014 to restore Australian knighthoods.

ACM have long campaigned for the restoration of knighthoods and dames and have dedicated a section on our site www.norepublic.com.au to this end.

In late 2013 we petitioned the Prime Minister concerning the appointment of Governors-Generals. We argued that governors-general must be willling to accept such high honours as The Queen may wish to confer.

We stated:

We pray therefore that when you advise Our Most Gracious Sovereign Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia on the appointment of the next Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, You place before Her Majesty the name or names of Australians:

Who are eminent in their chosen field, Who are committed to long standing and time honoured Australian institutions and symbols, Who have no political ambitions,

Who accept that the Australian Crown is and must remain above the political arena,

Who will not divide, but will unite the country,

Who believe in constitutional monarchy and will swear the Oath of Allegiance to the Sovereign, without reservation or condition, Who will in good faith at all times honour their Oath of Allegiance,

and Who are willing to accept the award of such high honours as Her Majesty The Queen may be pleased to confer. And your Petitioners, men and women of Australia, as in duty bound, shall ever pray for Her Majesty's most prosperous reign. Advance Australia Fair! God Save The Queen.
