Was very kind to receive Her Majesty’s call this evening to check in and see how we’re all getting on in Australia. The Queen was very interested to hear about our progress in combatting COVID-19 and was so pleased we have managed to prevent the terrible impacts. Our recovery from the bushfires was also a key area of interest for her as well as the ongoing drought. Her Majesty was also pleased to hear our horse races were still running in Australia and sent her very best wishes to all Australians.
