Australian politicians paid their respects to Queen Elizabeth II after returning to Parliament from a break taken to observe the Queen’s death.

Australia does not have an obscure and long-standing protocol that prohibits parliament from sitting for 15 days after the death of the British monarch.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese decided to comply with the protocol. Albanese has previously said he hopes the Australian president will replace the British monarch as head of state, but during the mourning he has avoided getting involved in republican debates. was

We are thinking of King Charles, who feels the weight of this grief while bearing the weight of the crown.Anthony Albanese

The Australian Parliament’s upper and lower houses of parliament on Friday passed a motion of condolence for the late monarch, celebrating the accession of King Charles III to the throne.

Albanese said it’s hard to understand that the Queen is now just a memory after 70 years on the throne.

“In a time of rapid change, she was a rare and reassuring regular,” said Albanese.

Queen Elizabeth made 16 visits to Australia during her reign.

“She got to know us, thanked us and hugged us. The feeling was very mutual,” Albanese said.

The Prime Minister offered his condolences to King Charles.

“I think of King Charles, who feels the weight of this grief as he bears the weight of his crown,” Albanese said.

Opposition leader Peter Dutton said the Australians took advantage of the Queen’s verbal wisdom and the comfort of her voice.

“I admired the Australian character of honoring people who do essential business without making a fuss or attracting media attention,” Dutton said.

“But of course, wherever the Queen went, crowds cheered, clapped, and waved flags to express their adoration, choking the streets.”

Adam Band, leader of Australia’s small Green Party, offered his condolences but reiterated his support for Australia becoming a republic.

“The Queen’s death means that we have a new head of state who has no say in the matter. It’s just the right time to have a respectful discussion about whether that’s right for our country. It’s time,” he said.

“We can express our condolences to those who are personally grieving her, while also respectfully speaking about what that means for our nation.”

Green Party Senator Sarah Hanson Young offered her condolences, but also spoke of the need for reconciliation with Aboriginal Australians.

Hanson Young told the Senate, “She didn’t try to separate her children from their parents or personally delete and destroy one of the world’s oldest cultures.

“[But]she was the government representative of that institution. We have to consider the generations of oppression, trauma and suffering as a result of colonization.”

British High Commissioner Vicky Treddell was in parliament to hear the tribute.
