King Charles III could visit as soon as next year: McGowan

Mark McGowan has revealed he expects King Charles III is likely to visit our shores next year as he joined with Governor Chris Dawson to officially proclaim him as the ruling monarch of WA.

Speaking after a special meeting of the Executive Council held on Sunday to recognise the new Sovereign in WA’s legal framework, the Premier said he had been “impressed” when he first met the King on his last visit to WA in 2015.

“I would have thought by next year he will probably come to Australia, and if he comes to WA, that would be terrific,” he said.

Mr McGowan also confirmed West Australians will have two public holidays this month within the space of five days.

As well as a national day of mourning announced for September 22, WA will retain the Queen’s Birthday public holiday scheduled for September 26.
