Visit To Australia By The Queen

Visit To Australia By The Queen And The Duke Of Edinburgh

The Prime Minister

As previously indicated, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have accepted my invitation on behalf of the Government and people of Australia to visit Australia next year.

I can now confirm that the visit will take place in the second half of March 2000.

I am sure that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will receive a warm welcome.

State and Territory Governments are being consulted in the preparation of the programme. Details will be announced at a later date.
