Prince Charles will become the next King and head of the Commonwealth following the reign of the Queen. His reign is likely to differ from the Queen’s greatly based upon his different passions and interests. But one new reason why his future reign will be forever changed soon was announced this week.

Prince Charles has been at the forefront of the Royal Family’s virtual face throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

He and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were among the first royals to return to in-person engagements.

Prince Charles is the longest-serving heir apparent having taken on the royal at the tender age of four when his mother became Queen.

When he becomes King he will take on a range of impressive titles such as the Duke of Lancaster, Defender of the Faith, Supreme Governor of the Church of England, Head of the Commonwealth, and King of other Realms and Territories.

However, one territory he will not reign over is Barbados.

Next year will mark the country’s 55th anniversary marking independence from the UK.

The Queen remains the constitutional monarch of Barbados.

This move would mean the Queen would remain monarch of 15 countries including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Belize.

She remains the head of state of the following Caribbean countries: Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Barbadian authorities have revealed plans to remove the Queen as their head of state.

Speaking on Wednesday, the Caribbean island’s Governor General said: “The time has come to fully leave our colonial past behind.

“Barbadians want a Barbadian Head of State.

“This is the ultimate statement of confidence in who we are and what we are capable of achieving. “Hence, Barbados will take the next logical step toward full sovereignty and become a Republic by the time we celebrate our 55th Anniversary of Independence.”

If the process of removing the British monarch as their head of state comes to fruition, Barbados will become a full-fledged state in November 2021.

This will end a royal relationship which has been in effect between Barbados and the UK since 1625.

Barbados will remain a member of the Commonwealth, which is a union of 54 countries that were mostly former British territories.

Buckingham Palace said the decision was a matter for the government and people of Barbados according to PEOPLE magazine.

Several countries have removed the Queen as their head of state in recent years.

Mauritius was the most recent country to do so in 1992.

The country would follow in the footsteps of Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago and Dominica, which all removed the Queen as head of state in the 1970s.

A Barbados government review recommended the country become a republic as far back as 1998.

The Jamaican Government debated removing the Queen as the nation’s monarch in 2016.

Prince Charles visited the island in March 2019.

During his visit, he officially named singer Lionel Richie as an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust International.

Speaking to the singer, Charles said: “It must have been you I was looking for.”

To which Mr Richie responded: “Oh, did you just say that? He did say that.”
