Her Majesty The Queen
Her Majesty The Queen passed away on 8 September 2022.
For 70 years, Queen Elizabeth the Second reigned as Australia’s Head of State. During her reign, The Queen visited Australia 16 times and saw more of this country than most, visiting every state and territory.
The Queen consulted with 16 Prime Ministers and 16 Governors-General served in her name. She was the patron of more than 20 Australian charities and associations.
When visiting Australia in 2002, The Queen said:
You are invited to leave an online condolence message to the People of Australia. You can also view the photo gallery celebrating Her Majesty\'s life and the digital collection of official Royal Visits to Australia.
The condolences will be collated and sent to Buckingham Palace. The messages will also be archived by the Australian Commonwealth and may be displayed at its national institutions, such as the National Library of Australia, to form a lasting record of this moment in history.
You can read more about the life of Her Majesty The Queen on the Royal Family website.
