Labor maintains that Queen Elizabeth was involved in the dismissal of the Whitlam government, despite the release of correspondence between former governor-general Sir John Kerr and Buckingham Palace. The letters show that although Sir John kept the palace informed of the unfolding constitutional crisis in November 1975, the Queens was not told in advance that he intended to dismiss the government. Buckingham Palace has released a statement confirming this, and stating that the Queen respects the independence and primacy of the Australian Constitution.
