The Queen and the Commonwealth

The British arrived in Barbados in 1627 and the island remained under British rule until 1961 when it achieved self-government.

Barbados then became an independent sovereign State within the Commonwealth on 30 November 1966.

The Queen is the Head of State of Barbados whilst the people of the island elect their own Prime Minister, who runs the Government.
