The Royals Visit Australia
Just like football finals and backyard barbecues, royal visits to Australia have become part of our ritual.
While republicans grouch about what they see as a bunch of British interlopers, the tours keep on coming and Australians, young and old, keep on turning up for a look.
Monte Luke and his photographers have a long history of covering these visits, dating back to 1927 when Prince Albert (father of the present Queen and later to be King George VI) visited with the Queen Mother (then the Duchess of Cornwall and Wales) to open the new Parliament House in Canberra.
In 1958, more than 30 years later, the by then widowed Queen Mother returned on a solo tour.
