“But over the years I’ve observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways to encourage people to combine their efforts, talents, ideas, enthusiasm and inspiration to work together. “

She then quoted the queen from her 1991 Christmas show.

‘Queen Elizabeth II… Let’s not take ourselves too seriously. None of us has a monopoly on wisdom,” she concluded.

She, alongside Hugh Jackman and Neighbors star Jason Donovan, met the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2011 ahead of her royal tour Down Under.

She was elegantly dressed in a beige ruffled dress paired with a matching handbag.

Australia has joined much of the world in mourning Queen Elizabeth II as her death prompts the first change of head of state in more than seven decades.

A statement from Buckingham Palace on Friday morning (AEST) confirmed the death of the 96-year-old.

“The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” Buckingham Palace said.

“The King and Queen Consort will stay at Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.”

Flags will fly at half mast across Australia on Friday as the nation waits to hear how the official mourning process will unfold.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has paid tribute to the Queen, who is succeeded by her son King Charles III in a move that should revive the Republican debate in Australia.

“A historic reign and a long life of duty, family, faith and service have come to an end,” Mr. Albanese said in a statement.

“The Government and people of Australia send their deepest condolences to the Royal Family, who mourn a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother – the person who for so long was their greatest inner strength. .”

Mr Albanese said that ‘from his famous maiden voyage to Australia, the only reigning sovereign to ever visit, it was clear that Her Majesty held a special place in her heart for Australia’.

“Fifteen more tours before cheering crowds in every part of our country confirmed the special place she held in ours.”

He praised the Queen’s relationship with Australia and the rest of the world.

“As monarch for more than half the life of our Federation, the relationship between Australia and Britain has matured and evolved throughout Her Majesty’s reign,” he said.

Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese offered his condolences to the Royal Family, the British people and all of his own citizens who held Her Majesty in high esteem.

“The Queen has greeted each change with understanding, good grace and an unwavering faith in the good judgment of the Australian people.

“It was the skillful and diplomatic way in which she linked the diversity of the modern Commonwealth, nations around the world who will mourn her passing.

“This period of mourning will pass, but the deep respect and warm consideration in which Australians have always held Her Majesty will never fade.”

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 Commonwealth realms, including Australia, since her reign began in February 1952.

With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, a historic reign and a long life of duty, family, faith and service came to an end.

The government and people of Australia send their deepest condolences to the Royal Family, who mourn a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, the person who for so long was their greatest inner strength.

Australian hearts go out to the people of the United Kingdom who mourn today, knowing they will feel they have lost some of what holds their nation together.

There is comfort in Her Majesty’s own words: “Grief is the price we pay for love.

It is a loss we all feel, as few have known a world without Queen Elizabeth II. During her remarkable seven decades on the throne, Her Majesty has been a rare and reassuring constant amid rapid change. Through the noise and tumult of the years, she embodied and exhibited a timeless modesty and an enduring calm.

From the moment the young Princess became Queen, shouldering the mighty weight of the institution into which she was born, Her Majesty has made devotion to duty and service above self the hallmark of her reign.

She celebrated our good times, she was with us through the bad times. Happy and glorious but unwavering too. In particular, we remember the sympathy and personal kindness she showed to Australians bereaved by tragedy and disaster.

Throughout, she was a monarch who let her humanity shine through, performing her duty with fidelity, integrity and humor. In this she was supported so long and so lovingly by the late Prince Philip, her “strength and stability” for 73 years.

From her famous first trip to Australia, the only reigning sovereign to ever visit, it was clear that Her Majesty held a special place in her heart for Australia.

Fifteen more tours to cheering crowds in every region of our country confirmed her special place in ours.

As Monarch for more than half of the life of our Federation, the relationship between Australia and Britain has matured and evolved throughout Her Majesty’s reign.

The Queen has greeted each change with understanding, good grace and an unwavering faith in the good judgment of the Australian people.

It was the skillful and diplomatic way in which she bound together the diversity of the modern Commonwealth, the nations around the world who will mourn her passing.

Today marks the end of an era, the end of the second Elizabethan age. This period of mourning will pass, but the deep respect and warm consideration in which Australians have always held Her Majesty will never fade.

May she rest in eternal peace.
