Increasing support for the monarchy and the question of the succession were the subject of the Channel 7 Weekend Sunrise programme after the 8.00am news on Saturday 26 May, 2012.

Professor David Flint from Australians for Constitutional Monarchy and the recently appointed Australian Republican Movement's National Director, Mr. David Morris, debated these issues on national television.

They were encouraged by Channel 7's able presenters, Andrew O'Keefe and Samantha Armytage who will be reporting on the Diamond Jubilee functions from London.
