Coronation of King Charles III

In reply to the Hon. H.M. GIROLAMO ().4 May 2023).

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector): The Premier has advised:

There were opportunities for South Australians to come together in celebration of the Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort. These included a special lunch on the lawns of Government House, a state reception hosted by the Governor, and a Government House open day will be held on 21 May 2023, which will include the planting of commemorative wattle trees in the grounds of Government House. Members of the public also have the opportunity to inscribe messages of congratulations to Their Majesties in books provided for this purpose.

In line with other states and territories, iconic buildings and monuments across South Australia were illuminated in royal purple on 6 and 7 May 2023 to acknowledge this historic occasion.

Her Excellency the Governor attended the coronation and presented her respectful congratulations and best wishes to Their Majesties on behalf of South Australia.
