Australia’s prime minister and other political leaders have laid wreaths at Parliament House to honour the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Governor-General David Hurley and Opposition Leader Peter Dutton marked the monarch’s passing with a ceremony at the Queen’s Terrace on Saturday morning.
The wreath-laying comes more than 30 years after the monarch opened the new Parliament House in 1988, which included unveiling a statue of herself.
The Queen’s eldest son became King Charles III immediately after her death in the early hours of Friday morning at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
