Australia likely to stick with royals as former MP states ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’

Australia will not become a republic during the reign of King Charles , according to a former minister for foreign affairs.

Julie Bishop, who was deputy leader of the Liberal Party from 2007 to 2018, argued that Australians were unable to agree on what would replace the monarchy, reports state.

She told 9Honey: “I don’t actually think the question of Australia being a republic is attached to the British monarch as such, it’s actually the political system (a constitutional monarchy), and the Australian people have shown that they are loath to change if no good reason is demonstrated – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

“I was quite involved in the last time we had a referendum on this topic in 1998/1999 and there was so much disagreement as to what would replace a constitutional monarchy – a direct elect president, a president elected by the Parliament – there was just no agreement.

“So unless there’s a model that the majority of Australians and a majority of states agree upon, we’ll continue with the system we have.”

Royal Family ‘given chance to celebrate Christmas’ before Harry drops bombshells

In the New Year, Prince Harry’s memoir will hit stores worldwide as many royal commentators predict the book will contain further revelations from within the Royal Family.

Penguin Random House has confirmed the global release date for Prince Harry’s much-anticipated memoir will be January 10 next year.

The book had initially been “tentatively scheduled” for publication in the autumn of this year, although it seems there have been some delays in the editing and production process.

The news has asserted King Charles will be able to enjoy his first Christmas since becoming monarch ahead of any fallout from his son’s bombshell book.

Prince Harry’s memoir delay down to ‘issue in America’ with Michelle Obama’s book – claim

The Duke of Sussex’s book could have been delayed due to it clashing with Michelle Obama’s, a royal expert has pointed out.

Prince Harry’s highly anticipated memoir, billed as a book of “raw, unflinching honesty”, will be published in the new year, it has been announced. Harry’s book is called Spare, a reference to the phrase “the heir and the spare” and will be released globally on January 10.

But the Daily Mail’s royal editor Rebecca English said it may not have been released for Christmas due to Michelle Obama’s new book The Light We Carry coming out November 15 this year.

Speaking to Palace Confidential, Ms English said: “It’s going to be published on January 10 which is a surprise for a lot in the publishing industry who thought that they would want to capitalise on the Christmas rush.

“Someone I spoke to said to me they would never hold something of this magnitude over until January.”

Prince Harry ‘wise enough’ not to drop ‘truth bombshells’ in new memoir

With Prince Harry set to release his tell-all memoir in the new year, there has been rampant speculation among royal commentators that the book could contain further “truth bombs” concerning sensitive Palace matters.

Since their departure as senior royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have gained notoriety for a series of media interviews in which they levelled some serious allegations against members of the Royal Family.

As the publication date for ‘Spare’ nears, royal author Robert Hardman suggested Prince Harry would be “wise enough” to respect the privacy of the royal household and avoid any additional revelations about the inner workings of the monarchy.

Mr Hardman, who penned the Queen of Our Times, confessed there could be “all sorts of problems” if Prince Harry decided to drop “more truth bombs”.

However, he told Talk TV’s The Royal Tea: “My hunch is that Harry won’t burn all the bridges with his family.

“He doesn’t need to for this to be a sensational international bestseller. He can just tell us the story of his childhood.”

Meghan could relaunch ‘The Tig’ blog

The Duchess of Sussex has sparked speculation over a potential return of her successful lifestyle blog, The Tig, after submitting a trademark application for its name.

Her bid was first rejected six months ago, when the US Patent & Trademark Office said the description of the website was “too broad” and the paperwork had been left unsigned.

Now, however, the Duchess of Sussex seems closer to seeing her application approved after, as her first submission sumbitted 12 months ago was rectified with the assistance of an additional lawyer, Danielle Weiss, and is “under examination” by the US federal agency.
