Australian parliamentarians have been inundated with ironic requests for portraits of The Queen after a dark law was discovered, revealing that voters had the right to request one at the expense of taxpayers.

Under the Constituency Application Program, Australians can ask their parliamentarians for items of national interest.

The items include a picture of her majesty with a wattle brooch, a gift from former Australian Prime Minister Robert Menzies, and a pin with the country's coat of arms.

The Queen is the head of state of Australia since it remained a British domain after gaining independence in 1901.

Other materials on offer include national flags, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, "national documents" such as brochures on Australian flags and national symbols, and a portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The deputies said they had not received any requests for portraits of Queen Elizabeth until it was the archaic disposition that was pointed out in an article by Vice President Nicholas Lord on Wednesday.

Do you want to see this face every day? That is possible if you are Australian, since you have the legal right to receive free nationalist memories.

More than 25 requests for a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II had landed in the office of Rebekha Sharkie Alliance deputy in 12 hours.

Deputy Craig Laudy shared on social networks that he had to ask for more photos to keep up with the lawsuit.

Melbourne MP Tim Watts never received a portrait request. It has had about four dozen applications since the recent disclosure, the Labor MP told ABC Radio.

Watts told his Twitter followers that he considered him the most "stupid" part of his work. He has threatened to include additional material when he sends the portrait.

& # 39; Some portraits of [retired Western Bulldogs captain] Bob Murphy and [former prime minister] Julia Gillard, some membership forms from the Australian Republican Movement and an invitation to our Wattle Day barbecue on Williamstown beach.

MP Terri Butler had also had some requests. She shared on social networks that she had been convinced to provide a photo of the singer Beyonce to those who had not specified her request for a photo of the Queen.

The "Constituency Application Program" entitles Australian voters to receive nationalist memories that include flags, the National Anthem and portraits of the Royal Family.

All Australian citizens, as members of the Commonwealth, can send an email to their local MP to request a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which is then sent free of charge.

The program is exclusive to Australians because citizens of the United Kingdom have to buy the portrait of the Queen, while Canadians must download one themselves.

New Zealand is looking to introduce downloadable portraits, while other Commonwealth countries such as South Africa and India do not offer official portraits.

The government-funded program probably dates back to the 1990 Parliamentary Headline Act.

In 1999, a referendum determined that Australians wanted to remain a constitutional monarchy with 54.87 percent of the votes in favor.
