2 mins read

Buckingham Palace announced the Queen had died “peacefully” at Balmoral in Aberdeen on Thursday as members of the Royal Family rushed to be by her side. King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort will now ascend the throne. But his succession has sparked renewed calls from the Caribbean to remove the monarch as their head of state.

Chair of the Bahamas National Reparations Committee, Niambi Hall-Campbell said: “As the role of the monarchy changes, we expect this can be an opportunity to advance discussions of reparations for our region.”

Ms Hall-Campbell sent her condolences to the Royal Family adding that she hoped Charles would rule in a way reflecting the “justice required of the times. And that justice is respiratory justice”.

Following his mother’s death, Charles said the moment is of “great sadness” for all members of the Royal Family.

He added: “We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms, and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

“During this period of mourning and change, my family and I will be comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held.”
