“But over the years I’ve found that some leadership traits are universal and often involve finding ways to encourage people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together. ‘

She then quoted the Queen from her 1991 Christmas broadcast.

‘Queen Elizabeth II… Let’s not take ourselves too seriously. None of us have a monopoly on wisdom,’ she finished.

Elle, alongside Hugh Jackman and Neighbors star Jason Donovan, met the Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2011, prior to her royal tour Down Under.

She was stylishly dressed in a beige dress with ruffles and a matching handbag.

Australia has joined much of the world in mourning Queen Elizabeth II as her death marks the first change of head of state in more than seven decades.

A statement from Buckingham Palace early on Friday (AEST) confirmed the death of the 96-year-old.

“The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon,” Buckingham Palace said.

“The King and Queen Consort remain in Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.”

Flags will fly at half-mast over Australia on Friday as the country waits to hear how the official mourning process will unfold.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese paid tribute to the Queen, who will be succeeded by her son King Charles III in a move expected to renew the Republican debate in Australia.

“A historic reign and a long life devoted to duty, family, faith and service has come to an end,” Albanian said in a statement.

“The government and people of Australia offer our deepest condolences to the Royal Family, who are mourning a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother – the person who has been their greatest inner strength for so long.”

Mr Albanese said that ‘from her famous maiden voyage to Australia, the only reigning sovereign to ever visit, it was clear that Her Majesty had a special place in her heart for Australia’.

“Fifteen more tours before cheering crowds in every part of our country confirmed the special place she had occupied in ours.”

He praised the Queen’s relationship with Australia and the rest of the world.

“As monarch for more than half of the life of our Federation, the relationship between Australia and Great Britain has matured and evolved during Her Majesty’s reign,” he said.

The Queen greeted every change with understanding, good grace and an abiding faith in the judgment of the Australian people.

This was the deft and diplomatic way she connected the diversity of the modern Commonwealth, countries around the world that will mourn her passing.

“This time of mourning will pass, but the deep respect and warm respect in which the Australians have always cherished Her Majesty will never fade.”

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor has been Queen of the United Kingdom and 14 Commonwealth realms, including Australia, since her reign began in February 1952.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanian’s Full Tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

With the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a historic reign and a long life devoted to duty, family, faith and service has come to an end.

The Government and people of Australia offer our deepest condolences to the Royal Family, who mourn a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother – the person who has been their greatest inner strength for so long.

Australian hearts go out to the people of the United Kingdom who are grieving today, knowing they will feel they have lost a part of what makes their nation whole.

There is comfort in Her Majesty’s own words: “Sorrow is the price we pay for love.”

This is a loss we all feel, as few have known a world without Queen Elizabeth II. In her seven remarkable decades on the throne, Her Majesty was a rare and reassuring constant amid rapid changes. Through the noise and tumult of the years she embodied and radiated a timeless decency and an enduring calm.

From the moment the young princess became queen, carrying on her shoulders the mighty weight of the institution into which she was born, Her Majesty made devotion to duty and service above herself the hallmark of her reign.

She celebrated our good times, she stood with us in the bad. Happy and glorious, but also steadfast. In particular, we remember the compassion and personal kindness she showed to Australians affected by tragedy and disaster.

Throughout it all, she was a monarch who showed her humanity and fulfilled her duty with fidelity, integrity and humor. In this she was supported for so long and so lovingly by the late Prince Philip, her “strength and support” for 73 years.

From her famous maiden voyage to Australia, the only reigning sovereign she has ever visited, it was clear that Her Majesty had a special place in her heart for Australia.

Fifteen more tours before cheering crowds in every part of our country confirmed the special place she had occupied in ours.

As monarch for more than half of our Federation’s life, the relationship between Australia and Great Britain developed during Her Majesty’s reign.

The Queen greeted every change with understanding, good grace and an abiding faith in the judgment of the Australian people.

This was the deft and diplomatic way she connected the diversity of the modern Commonwealth, countries around the world that will mourn her passing.

Today marks the end of an era, the end of the second Elizabethan era. This time of mourning will pass, but the deep respect and warm respect in which the Australians have always cherished Her Majesty will never fade.

May she rest in eternal peace.
