JAMAICA began with plans to remove the Queen from the position of head of state, and this work was entrusted to a high-ranking official in Kingston.
The country is seeking to join its fellow islanders in Barbados as British imperialism loses control of its former colonies.
According to reports, this will happen as soon as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge complete their Caribbean tour and fly home.
It comes after Kate Middleton and Prince William were accused of profiting from the “blood, tears and sweat” of slaves when they arrived in Jamaica on Tuesday.
The royal couple were greeted with a protest demanding reparations from the British monarchy prior to their arrival.
Dignitaries in the Jamaican community, including business leaders, medical professionals, musicians and politicians, wrote an open letter to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Speaking with Independentone government official said that the issue of secession was discussed at “the highest levels”.
Another source said: “The government should have started the process; the road to a republic is not easy, but they have long been under strong pressure to do so.”
However, the move showed that some Jamaicans were suggesting that it was unlikely that the island would become a republic.
The campaigner said: “I doubt the government will act quickly, the prime minister has just accepted a position on Her Majesty’s Privy Council.”

Camilla battles ‘long Covid’ ahead of Prince Philip’s memorial service
Camilla joked about losing her voice during an audience at Clarence House, but it’s not really a joke.
During an audience at Clarence House for International Women’s Day, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, joked about losing her voice.
She suggested that Emerald Fennell, a multiple TV and movie star who played Camille in Crowncould replace it if necessary.
Since then, rumors about the royal’s health have intensified as she was forced to cancel her visit to the Cheltenham Festival last week.
Alarm when Prince Andrew laughs and smiles at Windsor.
The Queen’s son, Prince Andrew, has been embroiled in a scandal over allegations of sexual harassment for many years.
The prince, who still holds the title of “Duke of York” despite calls from the region’s residents to remove it as they don’t want to be associated with him, was allegedly a close friend of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Virginia Giuffre claims the prince raped her.
Although he claims he has never met her, cannot sweat, and was at Pizza Express in Woking on one of the dates mentioned, he settled out of court.
Although he has not yet been seen at any official functions since then, it is said that he will attend a memorial service for his father to mark the year since his death.
The Queen hopes to visit Philip’s memorial in a week
In just a week, the Queen hopes to attend a memorial service for the Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey.
The Queen and Philip’s second son, the Duke of York, plans to attend despite Andrew paying millions earlier this month to settle a civil sexual assault case out of court.
A large number of members of the royal family will gather next Tuesday, along with Philip’s friends, colleagues, representatives of organizations he supported and foreign members of the royal family, to pay their respects to the 99-year-old duke, who passed away in April last year.
Last week, the head of state skipped a Commonwealth Day service at the abbey, a decision thought to be related to her comfort rather than a specific illness.
But she continued to take on light duties, including some face-to-face meetings.
William and Kate climb the Mayan ruins of Caracola
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, wearing identical green suits, began the third day of their Caribbean tour yesterday by climbing the Mayan ruins of Caracola.
Kate, 40, climbed the steep steps framing the impressive 43-meter structure, dubbed the Heavenly Palace, in the heart of the Belizean jungle.
Looking at the breathtaking view, Kate exclaimed “wow” as she and William, 39, stood at an archaeological site that their guide likened to Buckingham Palace.
The couple posed halfway on the plateau, reminding viewers of their 2012 wedding as they kissed on the Palace’s balcony.
Archaeologist Allan Moore told them: “What you see is Buckingham Palace from that time. Three thousand years ago it would have seemed very modern.”
The stunning relic is still the tallest man-made structure in Belize and is where the ancient Maya placed their rulers on top of the world they knew.
The Duke of Edinburgh demonstrates survival skills in Belize
The Duke of Cambridge claimed “Ray Mears will eat your heart” as he brushed up on his jungle survival skills in Belize and drank vine rainwater.
William was just 18 years old when the British Army Training Support Unit (BATSUB) taught him basic techniques at the start of the school year in Belize in 2000.
He is reunited with his former Sandhurst sergeant major, now in charge of the jungle troop, and the officer described the future king, who turns 40 this year, as “gracefully aged.”
The Duke and Duchess spent over 90 minutes on a crash course in survival techniques taught to British soldiers who spend six to eight weeks in the jungles of Belize.
Arriving at BATSUB’s headquarters, dubbed “School House”, the couple were briefed on the five basic principles of environmental survival: cooking, animal traps, shelter, water capture, and fire.
William and Kate were shown how to boil water with a plastic bottle hung over a fire, how to make bamboo spears to use as a pressure cooker, and how to make bamboo spears to catch and kill monkeys and birds to eat.
Looking at a guillotine-style trap suspended five meters from a tree, William turned to the press gathered on the side of the device and joked, “Ah, that might trap the media,” and Kate burst into laughter.
