Elizabethans are more than monarchists. Many British and Commonwealth countries that support Elizabeth seemed to support her. Even in rebellious, rather republican Scotland, the monarch’s role was respected. Many nations that have ties to the British crown are now having to discuss her death again. They may even consider taking advantage of the new throne in order to separate from the union.
Elizabeth II’s death is more significant. What if Elizabeth II was actually the institution? Her death will not only affect the strength of the monarchy on the island (Scotland has another reason to vote for independence from her), but also the outside world.
Many Commonwealth member countries have realized that there is no reason to remain in a monarchy now that Charles III has encircled the crown. Some of these countries want to transform themselves into republics right away.
The Commonwealth unites the former British colonies and protectorates with the mother island. This organization enabled Elizabeth II to be the head of state in 14 countries: Antigua and Barbuda (Australia, Bahamas, Belize), Canada, Grenada and Tuvalu. She was also the honorary leader for 56 other countries.
Carlos III now has this privilege. He actually received Patricia Scotland, Secretary General of Commonwealth, at his audience on Sunday. He also hosted a reception for diplomatic representatives from some of these countries.
It is certainly not enough. Many countries in the Commonwealth had begun their journey to the republic before Elizabeth II died; others were just waiting elegantly for the queen’s passing.
