THE QUEEN IS COMING TO CANBERRA.........
Its, 1954 and evidently is caused quite a frenzy back then!
The President of the Senate gave up this sitting room to the Queen during her five-day visit in 1954. For her, this room (which became known as the Queen's room) was a place to relax and to get some much needed privacy. New furniture was made especially for her!
We had a look at her "room" and the furniture, probably really nice furniture for the 1950's. Have a look, I think I expected something a little more glamorous!
Here, in Old Parliament House, she made history as the first reigning monarch to open our Commonwealth parliament.
Located in the Museum of Australian Democracy, Old Parliament House
