Vice-Regal News

On Friday 2 January 2004, at Cairns International Airport, the Governor-General, His Excellency Major General Michael Jeffery AC, CVO, MC was represented at the arrival in Australia of His Excellency Mr France Albert Rene, President of the Republic of the Seychelles, by Commander N J Wark, RAN, an Honorary Aide-de-Camp.

How on earth did this vital public ceremony escape the notice of the Man of Steel? And why was the governor-general allowed to be represented when the Man of Steel could have graced the occasion?

Seriously, what was the last major public occasion the governor-general was allowed to attend?
