The Chief Ambassador of Austenasia is the member of Cabinet who is in charge of the Foreign Office of the Empire of Austenasia. The Chief Ambassador is therefore responsible for maintaining diplomatic relations with other nations and for representing and promoting the interests of the Empire of Austenasia internationally.

Under the 2008 Constitution, the Chief Ambassador was elected by the other Representatives, but under the 2011 Constition is appointed by the Monarch, although the requirement to be a Representative has remained.

The Chief Ambassador is ex officio Austenasian ambassador to the United Kingdom and to any nation or people for which the Foreign Office has not appointed a subordinate ambassador, although the role of the Monarch in representing the state abroad has recently increased significantly. The Chief Ambassador therefore personally represents Austenasia in many cases.

The position has been vacant since the previous holder of the office, Lord Charles Clarke, resigned.
