Crown and Country: Understanding Monarchies (Stage 5)

On Demand

Are kings and queens just fancy figureheads or do they have real power? Get the lowdown on Their Royal Highnesses with this short explainer video.


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Does the monarchy have a role in the 21st century? And what do kings and queens actually do anyway?

This video explainer goes behind the pomp and circumstance and lays out the facts about constitutional monarchies – what they are, what they do, and why we still have one!

With expert commentary from Professor Dennis Altman (La Trobe University), by the end of this video, students will be able to:

  • identify the differences between a constitutional monarchy and an absolute monarchy,
  • name countries other than Australia that have a constitutional monarchy,
  • identify the role of an elected government in countries with a constitutional monarchy.

Use it as a conversation starter or launching point for more in-depth investigation into Australia’s federal system of government and democratic processes.

Perfect for students studying HASS (Civics and Citizenship) or HSIE (Society and Culture).
