We would like to hear from people in Barbados, and those who are part of the diaspora, on the world’s newest republic
At midnight on Monday, Barbados became the world’s newest republic ending 396 years of the British monarchy’s reign over the Caribbean island. Hundreds of people took part in the celebrations in Bridgetown and Barbadian signer Rihanna was declared a national hero.
Whether you live or work in Barbados or are part of the diaspora, we would like to know what this moment means to you. We are also interested in hearing about any celebrations you took part in to mark the occasion.
