    Why does Australia still retain the Queen as a constitutional monarch?

    I see that there are hubbers from down under here, I am interested to know why, given that Australia is now a multi-cultural society, still retain this link to the United Kingdom.

    I would be a bit worried to live in a country where my elected officials could be overruled by a monarch of some other state.

    It is only a traditional part of our country. The queen rarely if ever interferes. There have been cries for a republic for a long time but so far nothing has come of it.
