Letters written by the Queen before the 1975 dismissal of then Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam can be made public, an Australian court has ruled.
Mr Whitlam's government was removed by her representative at the time, Governor-General Sir John Kerr, and replaced with an opposition party.
The dismissal is often described as the most controversial episode in Australian political history.
It is not known what the letters between the Queen and Sir John contain.

One thing is for sure. The letters will not give you the answer to the question in the title.
