Australia may get another public holiday to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II, according to a leaked funeral brief obtained by The Australian.
The publication has obtained a new brief prepared for Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who will be informed about her death about one hour before a public statement by Buckingham Palace is sent out.
Mr Albanese is expected to put on a black tie immediately after the news is revealed.
The Prime Minister and Australia’s Governor-General are expected to return to Canberra to make a statement – that has already been drafted – before flying to London in separate RAAF planes.
According to the brief, Australia will observe a national day of commemoration, which is likely to be a public holiday, on the day of the Monarch’s death.
Prince Charles will become King Charles III immediately but will be officially proclaimed at St James’ Palace at 10am the following day.
Commonwealth countries will observe 10 days of mourning and remembrance, with flags to be flown at half-mast except the day of accession.
The plans also revealed four official Australian mourners and 10 to 12 notable Australians will be invited to the Queen’s funeral.
A meeting of the Executive Council of Australia will also be held to proclaim Charles III the King of Australia.
The Queen’s health had been a subject of widespread concern since October 2021 when she spent a night in hospital for the first time since 2013.
The 96-year-old was forced to cancel a series of public appearances during the Platinum Jubilee weekend as she had been suffering from ongoing mobility issues.
