You’ve already been told what the deal is by other commenters.Jamaica 60th Independence Day Jamaica 60 Independence T-Shirt The post’s title is misleading. Jamaica is not seeking independence because they are already independent, what they want is to cut symbollic ties to the British Monarchy (because the Queen of Jamaica is also the Queen of the UKGB&NI, amongs other places). They are in their right to just change their constitution and become a republic because they are already an independent sovereign nation.

Jamaica has been formally recognized as independent since 1962, when the UK passed the Jamaica Independence Act of 1962.If they don’t want the Queen to be the head of state, that’s on them. The Queen is only head of state of Jamaica because Jamaica has not passed a law removing the title yet.

Imagine inviting someone for a visit and then humiliating them. Jamaica is already independent, and if they don’t want the monarch that’s fine. But this whole thing just smacks of posturing.The royal family shouldn’t be a thing. And they probably aren’t even the rightful heirs to the throne. The whole thing is ridiculousI’m all about being polite…frankly I think there’s a lot of places that were hoping to wait for the Queen to pass. The whole concept of monarchy seems odd to meJamaica 60th Independence Day Jamaica 60 Independence T-Shirt. Like do the Royals want to be in a gilded human zoo?
