Barbados Walks Out Of Commonwealth & Removes Queen Elizabeth II As Sovereign

In a big announcement this week, the Caribbean nation of Barbados is planning to walk out of the Commonwealth and remove Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state. The Queen is the “constitutional monarch” of Barbados since her independence on 30 November 1966. As the sovereign, she is the personal embodiment of the Barbadian Crown.

Barbados walks out of Commonwealth

Barbados’ Governor-General, Sandra Mason, gave a speech on Tuesday at the state opening of Parliament, explaining that “the time has come to fully leave our colonial past behind.” Mason, reading from a speech written by Barbados’ Prime Minister, Mia Motteley, said that the plan is for the country to become a republic, and that it could happen as early as November 2021, which would coincide with the 55th anniversary of when Barbados gained independence in 1966, reported CNN.

“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,” Mason said. “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.”

Monarchy of Barbados

The Queen is the “constitutional monarch” of Barbados since her independence on 30 November 1966, per the Royal Family’s official website. As the sovereign, she is the personal embodiment of the Barbadian Crown. Although the person of the sovereign is equally shared with 15 other independent countries within the Commonwealth of Nations, each country’s monarchy is separate and legally distinct.

As a result, the current monarch is officially titled Queen of Barbados and, in this capacity, she, her husband, and other members of the Royal Family undertake public and private functions domestically and abroad as representatives of the Barbadian state.

However, the Queen is the only member of the Royal Family with any constitutional role. The Queen lives predominantly in the United Kingdom and, while several powers are the sovereign’s alone, most of the royal governmental and ceremonial duties in Barbados are carried out by the Queen’s representative, the governor-general.

Many in Barbados have wanted to remove Queen Elizabeth’s status as head of state for quite some time, as they see it as the “symbolic presence of imperialism,” according to CNN. Mauritius is the last country to drop the Queen as head of state, which it did in 1992.

Commonwealth Realms

A Commonwealth Realm is a country which has The Queen as its Monarch. There are 15 Commonwealth Realms in addition to the UK, per the Royal Family’s official website.

Some of the powers of the Crown are exercisable by the monarch (such as appointing governors-general) and others by the governor-general (such as calling parliamentary elections).

  1. The republican side of me applauds this action by Barbados, especially in that the royal family has been involved in a number of heinous crimes, nonetheless, the romantic side of my mourns the loss of a queen.

  2. This may interest –

    On 2 June 1953, the queen on her coronation took an oath.

    http://www.royal.gov.uk/ImagesandBroadcasts/Historic%20speeches%20and%20broadcasts/CoronationOath2June1953.aspx

    She was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury, ‘Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel?’

    She answered, ‘All this I promise to do.’

    Whosoever swears allegiance to her majesty the Queen is in turn a subject of the pope it seems.

    From the 13th Century, a third symbol being a rod, often adorned with the symbol of the dove symbolising fealty to the Roman Cult and absolutely authority was added during the coronation ceremony of Edward I of England.

    Queen Elizabeth 2 sat in Edward 1sts chair at her coronation

    X. The Investiture per annulum, et per sceptrum et baculum
    Then the Keeper of the Jewel House shall deliver to the Archbishop the Queen’s Ring, wherein is set a sapphire and upon it a ruby cross: the Archbishop shall put it on the fourth finger of her Majesty’s right hand, and say:
    Receive the Ring of kingly dignity,
    and the seal of Catholic Faith:
    and as you are this day
    consecrated to be our Head and Prince,
    so may you continue stedfastly
    as the Defender of Christ’s Religion;
    that being rich in faith
    and blessed in all good works,
    you may reign with him who is the King of Kings,
    to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
    Then shall the Dean of Westminster bring the Sceptre with the Cross and the Rod with the Dove to the Archbishop.

    So the Papal title of VICAR OF CHRIST which in Latin is VICARIUS CHRISTI, means a SUBSTITUTE FOR CHRIST, which is synonymous with Antichrist, i.e., assuming the power of God on earth! This blasphemous claim is made repeatedly by various Popes and is the very foundation of Roman Catholicism and it’s Papacy.

    If the Queen is the Crown then how come we have governments which do not support the Christian faith exclusively?

    By the terms of the “FOREVER” Treaty of 1213, the Vatican has since owned the Crown which it has rented to the British Monarchy per the terms of said Treaty, to wit:

    QUOTE

    “We wish it to be known to all of you, through this our charter, furnished with our seal, that inasmuch as we had offended in many ways God and our mother the holy church, and in consequence are known to have very much needed the divine mercy, and cannot offer anything worthy for making due satisfaction to God and to the church unless we humiliate ourselves and our kingdoms: we, wishing to humiliate ourselves for Him who humiliated Himself for us unto death, the grace of the Holy Spirit inspiring, not induced by force or compelled by fear, but of our own good and spontaneous will and by the common counsel of our barons, do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland, with all their rights and appurtenances, for the remission of our sins and of those of our whole race as well for the living as for the dead; and now receiving and holding them, as it were a vassal, from God and the Roman church, in the presence of that prudent man Pandulph, subdeacon and of the household of the lord pope Innocent, and his catholic successors and the Roman church, according to the form appended; and in the presence of the lord pope, if we shall be able to come before him, we shall do liege homage to him; binding our successors and our heirs by our wife forever, in similar manner to perform fealty and show homage to him who shall be chief pontiff at that time, and to the Roman church without demur. Concessions of May 15, 1213 to the Pope.” [END QUOTE]

    Two Papal Bulls followed after Magna Charta nullifying most of its terms.

    The Monarchy follows the dictates of the Crown’s owner, and does so to this date in spite of what is pretended. Note with whom the kings of the Earth seek counsel from time to time. This will give you understanding.
