Jamaica has already begun the process of removing the Queen as head of state and will continue after the upcoming royal visit.

Prince William and Kate who already faced demonstrations in neighbouring Belize are set for more during their tour of Jamaica with campaigners demanding reparations and apologies from the crown for slavery.

The trip which aimed to strengthen Britain’s ties with Commonwealth as of now has failed in its goal with more and more countries in the region seeking to end their relat with the monarchy, like Barbados did in November.

Sources have said that a senior figure within the Jamaican Government has already been appointed with the primary intention of seeing the nation through the transition to republic status.

A letter signed by 100 Jamaican leaders read:

“We see no reason to celebrate 70 years of the ascension of your grandmother to the British throne because her leadership, and that of her predecessors, have perpetuated the greatest human rights tragedy in the history of humankind,”

The group said that it would be celebrating 60 years of freedom from Britain, adding that it is saddened “that more progress has not been made given the burden of our colonial inheritance. We nonetheless celebrate the many achievements of great Jamaicans who rejected negative, colonial self-concepts and who self-confidently succeeded against tremendous odds. We will also remember and celebrate our freedom fighters.”
