Prince Charles has traveled to Barbados on his mother’s behalf to attend the inauguration of President Sandra Mason. She will replace Queen Elizabeth as head of state of the Caribbean island.

It is a historic event that is currently happening in Barbados. Prince Charles, 73, arrived in the Caribbean island nation on Sunday, November 28, 2021 to herald the abdication of Queen Elizabeth, 95, as head of state. The royal was received by the diplomats there, as well as an honor guard and a military band.

Photos show Prince Charles arriving at the side of Sandra Mason, 72, the future President of Barbados – an independent state within the Commonwealth. On Tuesday, November 30th, 2021, the governor general will be sworn in, replacing Queen Elizabeth in her position as head of state. The constitutional monarchy then becomes a republic. However, Barbados will continue to belong to the Commonwealth of Nations, an association of former colonies of Great Britain.

Prince Charles will attend the inauguration of the new head of state. As reported by the British media, a speech by the Prince of Wales is also expected. Presumably the father of Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 37, will encourage further cooperation between the future republic and Great Britain.

It is not the first time that the Royal has represented his mother in the secession of a country from the monarchy. In 1980 he traveled to Zimbabwe to witness the abdication of the British Queen. With Mason’s inauguration, Queen Elizabeth’s government will shrink from 16 to 15 countries where she is head of state – including Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
