The move would make Barbados the first country to drop the monarch since Mauritius did it nearly three decades ago in 1992. Queen Elizabeth is the head of state of 16 countries that are part of the Commonwealth, which includes the United Kingdom and former British colonies. Barbados gained its independence from British rule in 1966.

Saw it in the news and when I checked Simon Parks' blog found this comment:
"Buckingham Palace said it was not unexpected, but an insider said “the Queen became extremely angry""

If the insider was truthful, it is interesting to observe the discrepancy between an official political posture by a government and what really happens behind the curtains.

Yes, don't let me feel the Queen's wrath!
