The authorities of the island state of Barbados on November 30 will remove Queen Elizabeth II from the post of head of state. According to mir24, this was stated by a member of the committee that deals with this issue, Suleiman Bulbul. “It's monumental from our point of view. This is the next step on our journey - cutting the umbilical cord that connects us to the UK,” said Bulbul. As the newspaper notes, on November 30, Barbados will put Governor-General Sandra Mason as president.
Until 2021, the head of state was the monarch of Great Britain, represented on the island by the governor general. In September, the Barbados parliament approved a constitutional amendment that would strip Elizabeth II of her status as ruler of the island. Thus, for the first time in 30 years, the British monarch will lose one of his many kingdoms.
