The Australian Republican Movement has criticised yesterday's comments by Prime Minister Tony Abbott that "today everyone feels like a monarchist."
The comments to Prince Harry at the Fleet Review came as Mr Abbott said he regretted that not everyone is a monarchist.
So is the ARM being overly sensitive to the PM's well known monarchist stance? Or is Australia mature enough to celebrate such a significant event without feeling tied to the monarchy?
The question was put to Malcolm Turnbull on this morning's Insiders program on the ABC.
"I NEVER feel like a monarchist".
