The President of the Republic announced the country’s secession from the British Crown

Barbados officially announced its separation from the British Crown and the transition to a republic, becoming the newest republic in the world.

The country abandoned the monarchy, under which Queen Elizabeth II was the head of the political system in the country.

A ceremony in Bridgetown saw the inauguration of Sandra Mason, the first female president of the fledgling republic.

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, attended the celebration, which coincided with the celebration of the fifty-fifth anniversary of the island’s independence.
