The Queen has been removed as Head of State for Barbados.

The country formed a new republic on November 30, almost 400 years after the first English ship sailed to the Caribbean island.

Barbados’s first-ever President, Sandra Mason, has said it’s time the nation celebrates its ‘spirit and substance’.

She stated: “We the people must give Republic Barbados its spirit and its substance.

“We must shape its future. We are each other’s and our nation’s keepers. We the people are Barbados.”

Prince Charles has now made a statement.

It reads: “The creation of this republic offers a new beginning.

“From the darkest days of our past and the appalling atrocity of slavery which forever stains our history, people of this island forged their path with extraordinary fortitude.”

Although The Queen could not make the occasion, she sent her congratulations.

She said: “I send you and all Barbadians my warmest good wishes for your happiness, peace, and prosperity in the future.”

Although the 95-year-old will no longer be the Head of State for Barbados, she still remains The Queen of 15 other realms. This includes the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Jamaica.

Despite the island officially being a republic, many Bajans are reportedly calling for Britain to pay up reparations.

David Denny, an activist, reportedly said he opposed Prince Charles’ appearance, commenting on how the Royal Family has benefitted from the slave trade in the past.

He is believed to have said: “Our movement would also like the royal family to pay a reparation.”

However, some Bajans argued that The Queen should be left alone.

Sean Williams told Reuters: “They should leave Queen Elizabeth be – leave her as the boss. I don’t understand why we need to be a republic.”
