Elizabeth II is the permanent protector of our Constitution

Elizabeth II is the permanent protector of our Constitution. By her very existence the Queen and her successors ensure that our democracy, embedded in the Constitution, remains inviolate. Over-ambitious and overriding politicians cannot change this fact and thus Elizabeth II (and her heirs and successors) remains our ultimate safeguard Each one of us may choose our own friends, our political party or our religion, and we can be loyal to each of those groups. As Australians we may have many different hopes and interests and look for leadership and guidance in many places, yet we all have the one Queen and the loyalty pledged to Her is a higher loyalty than our sectional hopes and ambitions. It is a loyalty to the purposes and ideals of the whole Australian nation without preference to any section of society. We are all Australian citizens with one allegiance to the Crown.
