Today is Queen Elizabeth II's 94th birthday. However, this year her birthday celebrations have been cancelled amid the coronavirus outbreak.
For the past nine years I've been arguing the lack of any public activity around the Queen's birthday shows how the concept of monarchy is out-of-step with contemporary Australia.

If we will no longer be acknowledging the Queen's Birthday and Britain has cancelled the Trooping the Colour parade in June to mark the Queen's official birthday, then the next question is when will be holding 'Republic Day'?
