Do Australians see themselves as independent of Britain, even though they remain under the reign of our Queen and Royal Family?

    Australia has the Queen of Australia as its Head of State. It just so happens she is also Queen of the United Kingdom and fourteen other realms. The rest of the Royal Family is completely irrelevant to Australia unless they are in the country representing the Queen.

    Australia is completely independent of Britain and the last legal tie to Britain, the ability to appeal to the Privy Council, was abolished in the early 1970s.

    Australia has been politically independent of The UK since 1901.  Our status as a politically independent sovereign nation has been reaffirmed by The Statue of Westminster 1931, the Statute of Westminster Adoption Act 1942 and the Australia Acts (UK & AU) 1986

    I think so. It is the realm of Australia, the monarchy of Australia, a separate country with its own agenda, needs.

    Elizabeth is more than the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain,(England, Scotland, Wales), and Northern Ireland; she is the monarch of Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Solomon Islands,  and Tuvalu.

    These Commonwealth Realms are all independent countries that share a monarch.

    Yes. Elizabeth II is the queen of Australia. She just happens to live abroad.

    I expect so. Britain increasingly sees Australia as something of an irrelevance.

    For the most part.  Unlike certain other "Commonwealth" countries, Australia has TWICE had a plebescite to leave the Commonwealth.  I suspect one will be successful once the older generation dies out.

      We’ve never had a referendum on leaving the Commonwealth.  We had two sets of referenda in the 1890's on becoming a federation and one on becoming a republic.
