Will Australia Ever Become a Republic? Will This Debate Ever End?
Prince Charles is set to make an appearance for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony tomorrow and with his arrival comes fresh talks of moving towards a republic. Former Prime Ministers Paul Keating and Tony Abbott are butting heads about whether he would or would not support the move and it seems everyone is putting in their two cents on the Prince’s thoughts except for Prince Charles himself!
Helping us make sense of all the noise is Dr. Benjamin T. Jones, ANU Australian Research Council Fellow and the author of “This Time: Australia’s Republican Past and Future”.
