The small country of Barbados is an island located in the Caribbean Sea. At the moment, the country is under the rule of Elizabeth II, but very soon everything may change
Representatives of Barbados announced their desire to become an independent state in 2021. Residents of the country began to discuss the question on social networks, who will take the throne of Elizabeth II, and the majority of the population voted for the singer Rihanna to become their Queen. The celebrity was born in this country and did a lot of good things for the locals, so deserves this post like no other.
On September 16, 2020, Governor General of the country Sandra Mason announced the intention of her people to get rid of the colonial past, which means to become an independent state. Accordingly, Barbados refuses to recognize Queen Elizabeth II as head of their country. This is reported by local media.
“It's time to leave our colonial past behind. Our locals want to see a native of Barbados at the head of our country. At the moment when we will celebrate the 55th anniversary of independence, we want to take the next very logical step - full sovereignty and becoming a republic” - said the Governor-General.
Barbados gained its cherished independence 45 years ago, but the British Queen Elizabeth II remains their head of state. In Barbados, she is replaced by a designated person - the Governor-General. Currently, Sandra Mason has been appointed to this position. In addition to Barbados, Elizabeth II is the head of fifteen other independent states.
The news that the country will become an independent republic in 2021 has greatly excited the public. On the social network Twitter, residents of Barbados and other countries began to actively discuss who will be the next head of state. The most famous person, a native of Barbados, is the singer Rihanna. It is she who is the "Ambassador Extraordinary of Barbados" and constantly helps local residents. Moreover, the singer deals with issues related to education on the island, attracting tourism, as well as investments from outside. The public is convinced that Rihanna is simply obliged to lead her country. At the moment, the woman did not comment on the desire of her people in any way. Elizabeth II also did not give interviews in this regard.
