The monarchy of Baustralia, commonly referred to as the Baustralian monarchy, is the constitutional monarchy of Baustralia. The current monarch and head of state, John I, created the throne 20 June 2017.
The monarch and family undertake various official, ceremonial, diplomatic and representational duties. As the monarchy is constitutional, the monarch is limited to non-partisan functions such as bestowing honours and appointing the Prime Minister. The monarch is commander-in-chief of the Baustralian Armed Forces. Though the ultimate formal executive authority over the government of Baustralia is still by and through the monarch's royal prerogative, these powers may only be used according to laws enacted in Parliament and, in practice, within the constraints of convention and precedent.
