This guide is number 5 in the series of Research Guides published by the National Archives of Australia.

This guide lists records held by the National Archives of Australia about the impact of royalty on the past 100 years of Australian history. It covers records relating to six British monarchs from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth II, as well as royal births, weddings, funerals, accessions, abdications, coronations and visits to Australia.

Guides include the material known to be relevant to their subject area but they are not necessarily a complete or definitive guide to all relevant material in the collection.

The National Archives reviews its collection to confirm the value of records for research, evidential and other purposes or to identify, in consultation with agencies, records for destruction. At the time of publication all the records described in this guide were present in the Archives collection. However, it is possible that some of the records may be destroyed if they are reviewed and considered not to be of enduring value. If this occurs the guide will be revised accordingly.
