Charles III, King of Australia

The Australian Constitutional Monarchy shares principles with other Christian Constitutional Monarchies around the world.

The Monarch, a Queen or King, is crowned in a Christian Church service. The Monarchy is a limited Constitutional Monarchy, whose prime function is to give legitimacy to the authority of the Monarch's Australian representatives. The limitations are defined by the Australian Constitution, and the historical precedents that accompany the office of the Crown.

King Charles III, is the current reigning Monarch. Separate to his role as King of Great Britain, he is also King of Australia. He was crowned 6 May 2023.

At his Coronation, King Charles makes a solemn oath before God, to dedicate his life, whether long or short, to the service of his people. See also Australia’s Queen

The reserve powers of the Monarch are not defined, are rarely exercised, but are sufficient to guarantee that abusers of political power can be constrained by an office that is above politics, and that exists for the sole purpose of advancing the general common well-being of all the people.

Politicians represent the wishes of the majority. The Monarch serves sacrificially for the welfare of all.
