King Charles coronation: What Commonwealth nations does he reign over? Lalrp


WELLINGTON, New Zealand — As King Charles III meets with the leaders of his far-flung realms forward of Saturday’s coronation, there are fewer nations that share the monarch as head of state than when Queen Elizabeth II’s ceremony occurred in 1953.

A number of Commonwealth realms — nations with sovereign governments which have Charles as head of state — are reconsidering their relationships with the crown. The Caribbean island of Barbados was the newest to develop into a republic, jettisoning practically 400 years of historical past in 2021. Charles attended republican celebrations that yr because the royal normal was lowered for the final time on an island as soon as often called “Little England.”
