The Premier says Queen Elizabeth II has accepted the recommendation for the new appointment.

Justice Beazley is a highly decorated Federal Court of Australia and NSW Court of Appeal judge, who has also served as President of the Court of Appeal and is an Officer of the Order of Australia.

Attorney-General Mark Speakman MP SC said, ’The Hon Justice Margaret Beazley AO, will be our next Governor, after a distinguished career on the bench and more broadly an outstanding contribution to law and justice.’

She will become the 39th governor when she replaces the outgoing incumbent David Hurley who will be appointed the new Governor-General of Australia in May 2019.

Governor David Hurley and his wife Linda have offered their congratulations to Justice Beazley and her husband, Dennis Wilson, upon the announcement.
