Australia proclaims King Charles III head of state

We’ll wrap up the live blog for today.

King Charles III was recognized as Australia’s head of state after a meeting of the federal executive council and a ceremony outside Parliament on Sunday.

The ceremony outside the parliament building included the playing of the national anthem and greetings to the country. Following the proclamation of King Charles III by Governor General David Hurley, a performance of “God Save the King” took place, followed by an indigenous spiritual dance and a 21-gun salute.

Similar ceremonies in the states appeared later.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Hurley will travel to the United Kingdom on Thursday for a memorial service. Queen Elizabeth II. Australia will be assisting Commonwealth-affiliated Pacific island states to travel to the ceremony.

As soon as they return next Wednesday, Thursday, September 22, will be declared a national day of mourning. This day will be a one-time public holiday that has been agreed upon by all states and territories.

Albanese dismissed talk of Australia becoming a republic in this parliamentary term, reaffirming the government’s policy of holding a referendum in the second term of Albanese’s Labor government.

We will be back again tomorrow. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your evening.

It has been a privilege for me to participate today in the proclamation of King Charles III as a member of the Executive Council.

An historic moment as we salute the new Australian Head of State and prepare to officially honor the life and service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Albanian plan for republican referendum has not changed

Just feel like I should point out here that Sky News (the UK version, not the Australian one) is reporting an interview with the prime minister, Anthony Albanesethat the prime minister had said that he would not hold a referendum on a republic in his first term out of deep respect for Queen Elizabeth II.

While this may be true, this is not a sudden change in policy. it was the position of the government that there will be no referendum on a republic in the first term of the Labor government.

The only referendum to be held in this term of office is the vote of indigenous peoples in parliament.

You can read about where this process is up to below.

In case you missed why Thursday, September 22nd was chosen as the National Day of Mourning holiday.

Why is the day off on Thursday?
It’s not because of the Victorian GF holiday. Once again, this is part of the protocol. National Memorial Day is the day after the return of the Prime Minister and CEO from the UK. Once this is done, everything will return to normal. The plan ends.

New Zealand proclaims King Charles III as his sovereign

In the meantime, a longer report on changes in New Zealand, via AAR.

New Zealand formally proclaimed King Charles III as its sovereign in a ceremony outside Parliament House and will consider a public holiday to pay tribute Queen Elizabeth II.

Prime Minister Jacinda Arderngovernor general Cindy Kiro and speaker Adrian Rurave spearheaded the accession proclamation on Sunday.

It was read by the Herald of Arms. Philip O’Shea on behalf of Ardern, Kiro and the Executive Council.

“God save the king,” O’Shea said.

Kura Moeahuthe parliamentary kaumatua (respected elder), also read the proclamation in te reo Maori.

Ardern, speaking to several hundred New Zealanders gathered on the lawns in front of Parliament, said that New Zealand “has entered a time of change.”

For seventy years, Queen Elizabeth served the people of New Zealand’s Aotearoa with unwavering duty. For the vast majority of New Zealanders, she is the only monarch we know of.

We are always grateful to her for the close connection.

The 15-minute ceremony ended with the playing of the British national anthem, “God Save the King” and a 21-gun salute.

It also provided a rare public appearance for Ardern’s four-year-old daughter Neve, who accompanied the Prime Minister and her fiancé Clark Gayford.

On Monday, the cabinet will consider the organization of a state memorial service or possible public holiday, as well as New Zealand representation at the state funeral on 19 September.

The proclamation by His Majesty King Charles the Third Head of the Commonwealth was announced by the Governor General of the Commonwealth of Australia at 12 noon on Sunday 11 September 2022 at Parliament House in Canberra.

And with that I will hand over the blog Josh Taylor until the end of the day, thanks for reading.

President of the Australian Medical Association Professor Steve Robson tweeted some objections to today’s holiday announcement:

Operations and many patient consultations are booked on this day, at a time when access is difficult.

Thank you for dropping this in no time.🙄

Peter Dutton questioned about King Charles’ stance on climate change

I just wanted to get back to this morning’s Insiders speech by the leader of the opposition because he was asked about the more overtly political positions the new king has previously taken.

Asked specifically what he thinks of the new king’s stance on climate change, Peter Dutton stressed the importance of King Charles remaining “impartial”:

He is now moving into a different phase of his life, and as he noted, for most of his adult life he has been very supportive of charities and causes, but now he is putting that aside because he is taking on an important role. as head of the Commonwealth and as king, he will be responsible for the fair performance of his duties, as the queen did.

I think the point he made in his speech yesterday was that now, like the Queen, he does not express those views day in and day out.

King Charles III proclaimed King of New Zealand

New Zealand announced King Charles III as King of New Zealand today, in a ceremony at Parliament in Wellington on Sunday.
