The Queen's powers are delegated to the GG. She's HOS in name only.
But they aren't the Governor-General's powers. Those powers are vested in the person of the monarch but exercised by the Governor-General.
The Constitution provides that on the presentation of proposed laws for assent, the Governor-General declares, according to his discretion but subject to the Constitution, that he assents in the Queen’s name, or that he withholds assent, or that he reserves assent for the Queen’s pleasure.
