British monarch' s republican rep in Australia

According to a BBC report, Quentin Bryce, the new Governor-General of Australia, is a republican just like PM Kevin Rudd. Like the United States, India and Nepal, Australia was a colony of the British Empire. Advance Australia Fair, a very inclusive song with no more references to any monarch and deity, was officially declared the national anthem of Australia on 19 April 1984, replacing God Save the Queen for good.
