Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has again demonstrated he's one for turning as he failed to bring up the issue of an Australian republic in a meeting with the Queen.

Despite giving a speech and history lesson about the Liberal to Tony Abbott from very far away, Turnbull was at pains to avoid the issue about which he was once extremely passionate.

"This is the happiest day of my life," Turnbull said when he was casting his ballot in the 1999 Referendum.

It's a common theme for the man from the harbourside mansion. Turnbull once agitated very keenly for marriage equality, action on climate change and the NBN, but now has little gusto for these issues.

The most important thing to Turnbull is that Malcolm Turnbull is the Prime Minister of Australia.
