“From there, the members of the Federal Executive Council will make their way to the Parliament. It is a short drive from the Government Building to the Parliament Building, and on the forecourt of the Parliament, the Governor General will make this public announcement.

“This will be open to members of the public. You will not need an invitation to attend if you wish to witness this historic moment, and that will be followed by a 21-gun salute on the forecourt of the Parliament.”

“And he made specific reference to his constitutional role, which will limit what he says publicly.”

Publisher Rebecca Barnes says they are receiving information 40 messages per day from all over the world, including one of a man who sent a message to ask if he could be the next king of England.

“Who am I to stand in the way,” says Barnes.

“I answered and asked him to submit a question.”
