Australian Prime Minister: “I regret to say that not every Australian is a monarchist”

October 7, 2013

According to The Telegraph:

Tony Abbott, the Australian prime minister, has welcomed Prince Harry to Sydney – but apologised that not everyone was pleased to see him.

…he said: “I regret to say that not every Australian is a monarchist, but today everyone feels like a monarchist.”

He added: “You grace us as your family has graced our nation from its beginning. It is quite fitting on a day such as this when we think back over 100 years of the Royal Australian Navy that you are here as the crown is a symbol of continuity, decency, stability in our public life.”
