Sovereignty is the supreme and ultimate Authority in society and is held by the monarch (aka Sovereign) on behalf of the people. By declaring an oath of loyalty to the Monarch one declares it through him or her to the people. One cannot reasonably declare an oath to ‘the Australian people’ as the term has no sense. There is no unified ‘Australian people’ - it is a mass of disparate individuals but the monarch as Sovereign represents all these different peoples in a secure guardianship and provides the absolute authority needed to ensure the continuity of governance. The Monarch is Sovereign for life, is a-political and ensures continuously that the people have freedom to choose who in effect governs them. All justice is carried out and laws put in place in the name of the monarch. The very existence of a Sovereign who observes and protects from a distance ensures our ultimate freedom to choose who governs us (and who does not), to justice, to law and to rights agreed by parliament. No politician can change this arrangement however much he might wish to.
