Barbados becomes a republic, parts ways with British queen

 COLOMBIA:Barbados has officially removed Britain's Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state, becoming a republic.

In a ceremony in the capital Bridgetown late Monday, 72-year-old Sandra Mason assumed the presidency.

The event, which also marked the island's 55th independence anniversary, was attended by Prince Charles representing the British monarchy that ruled the Caribbean island for 394 years. It lasted for several hours and included Barbadian dance and music, and speeches celebrating the end of colonialism.



 A 21-gun salute was fired as the national anthem of Barbados was played. A final salute was made to the British monarchy and the Royal Standard flag got replaced.

Prime Minister Mia Mottley awarded the Prince of Wales the Order of Freedom of Barbados "in recognition of his support for the efforts of developing countries in the area of climate change and sustainable development and fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship among young people globally."
