King Charles III has only been on the throne for eight months, and already some commentators are suggesting that he is not welcome everywhere in his kingdom. According to “The Express” on 27 May 2023, he may find it difficult to be accepted by the Commonwealth.
Evicted from part of his kingdom. King Charles III is not only King of England but also head of certain other territories united around the Crown under the name Commonwealth, such as Barbados, Antigua and Jamaica. It turns out that, according to The Express, Jamaicans would like to “get rid” of the new king “next year”.
Although Jamaica has been an independent state since 1962, the country would like to make a definitive break with its past as a British colony and no longer be part of the kingdom for good. A referendum could even be held in 2024 on the subject of the monarchy. The newspaper’s website recalls that when the Prince and Princess of Wales visited Jamaica in 2022, Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness told them of his desire to become independent.
