THE HON ANDREW HASTIE MP
SHADOW MINISTER FOR DEFENCE
FEDERAL MEMBER FOR CANNING
FRIDAY 9 SEPTEMBER 2022
HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II was a woman of strength, humility and duty.
She was a model of leadership for millions around the world.
She was our Queen.
As a boy, I studied her dignity and grace. At the dinner table, my mother would urge us to eat as if Her Majesty was seated with us.
As a man, I gladly took an oath of allegiance to Her Majesty both as a soldier and as a Parliamentarian.
Along with many Australians, I feel great loss at her passing but also deep gratitude for the service that she gave as our Sovereign Lady.
Rest In Peace. May God save King Charles III.
