The Queen’s role in relation to Australia is entrenched in the Constitution. Section 1 states that the Commonwealth Parliament consists of a House of Representatives, a Senate and the Queen. Under section 2, the Queen is empowered to appoint the Governor-General as her representative in the Commonwealth. Under section 61 the ‘executive’ power of the Commonwealth is vested in the Queen and exercisable by the Governor-General.
