Maybe this is because I am British and Scottish (in that order) but surley Australia can have their own National Anthem but still play 'God Save The Queen' in HM presence? In Scotland 'Flower Of Scotland' is our anthem however we would never play it if the Queen came. We would play God Save The Queen. And quite rightly so. HM is head of state for Scotland and Australia and should be given the respect she deserves.

Queen touches down for visit

March 12, 2006
QUEEN Elizabeth and Prince Philip have arrived in Canberra to begin a five-day visit to Australia.

It is the Queen's 15th visit to Australia, after last visiting in 2002 for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. The royal couple arrived in Canberra about 9am (AEDT) where they were met by Prime Minister John Howard and his wife Janette, as well as Governor-General Michael Jeffery and his wife.

Royal visit begins in Canberra before trip to the Games
Sunday, 12 March 2006

THE Queen will be giving crowds her signature royal wave this morning when she touches down in the national capital.

And it could be one of the last times the monarch, who turns 80 in April, will visit Australia.
Territory citizens will be able to see her today at 8.30am from the roadside at the RAAF base, Fairbairn.
She will be met by Governor-General Michael Jeffery, Prime Minister John Howard and Chief Minister Jon Stanhope.
The royal visitors will spend tomorrow in Sydney before returning to Canberra on Tuesday.
The second opportunity for the public to see the Queen will be at 7pm on Tuesday, just before she enters Parliament House. She will be attending a parliamentary dinner in the Great Hall, hosted by Mr Howard and his wife, Janette.

Since there was confusion about whether to post in the Commonwealth Games thread or the Queen Elizabeth visits Australia thread, or both, I have merged the two.

THE Queen today paid tribute to Australia's cultural development, symbolised by the building she opened more than 30 years ago, as she began her official Australian tour duties today.
