Australian Prime Minister shows his allegiance

March 3, 2014

According to the Guardian:

The prime minister, Tony Abbott, has installed a portrait of the Queen in his parliamentary office foyer after a lengthy search.

After the September election, the prime minister asked the Department of Parliamentary Services to find a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to be displayed in his office suite. It was discovered that Parliament House had only one such portrait, which hung in the building’s public area. The 1954 portrait by William Dargie is often known as the “wattle painting” for the colour of the gown worn by the Queen.
