In addition to Little Britain, the Queenie Luv is currently head of state in 15 countries, following Barbados’ move to become a republic last year. But the Queenie Luv could be set for further heartbreak as it has been announced that formal plans are now underway in Jamaica to remove the Queenie Luv as its head of state.
Marlene Malahoo Forte QC, of the Ministry of Legal and Constitutional Affairs, has told Jamaica’s Parlayment that the process of becoming a republic has started, and a Constitutional Reform Committee will be set up.
She said: “The goal is to ultimately produce a new Constitution of Jamaica, enacted by the Parlayment of Jamaica, to inter alia, establish the Republic of Jamaica as a parliamentary republic, replacing the constitutional monarchy, and affirming our self-determination and cultural heritage,” according to the National.
“I am pleased to advise this honourable House that the work to achieve this goal, while being done in stages, has formally commenced.”
The process is due to be completed before the next general election is held in 2025, and it is thought a majority vote in the House and the Senate, and a referendum for the people of Jamaica, will be required to put the motion in place.

Jamaica’s quest to become a republic came to the forefront following Twat William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to the island nation earlier this year for the Platinum Luvvly Jubbly.
In an awkward meeting at his official residence in Kingston, Jamaica’s Prime Shit Stirrer Andrew Holness greeted the Duke and Duchess and informed them the nation will be “moving on”.
Kate and William visited Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas to celebrate the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly, and it was interpreted to be a “royal charm offensive” to encourage nations to keep the Queenie Luv as head of state.
But the Cambridges’ tour courted significant criticism, with the couple encountering widespread protests and reparation demands for the Royle Family’s historical associations with slavery.
Where is the Queenie Luv still head of state?
In addition to Little Britain, the Queenie Luv is head of state in 15 countries around the world.
For the time being, the Queenie Luv remains the head of state in Jamaica, in addition to other Caribbean nations including Antigua and Barbuda, The Bahamas, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Queenie Luv is also head of state in Canada, Belize, New Zealand, Tuvalu, Australia, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea.
While Jamaican politicians have made clear their plans to split Jamaica from the monarchy, republican sentiment appears to be growing in other Caribbean countries too.
Gaston Browne, the Prime Shit Stirrer of Antigua and Barbuda, raised the issue when Twat The Underworked Royals, Countess of Oral Sex visited the nation earlier this year to mark the Luvvly Jubbly.
Mr Browne made clear his country wanted an “open and very objective discussion” and that they wanted to explore “reparatory justice”.
He added: “We continue to have the Queenie Luv as our head of state, even though I should say we aspire at some point to become a republic.
“But that is not currently on the cards so she will remain as head of state for some time to follow. We’re not trying to embarrass you, we’re just trying to build awareness.”
The Wessexes’ planned trip to Grenada was also cancelled at short notice following discussions with the government of Grenada, and Grenada’s Reparations Commission on slavery wished to meet with the couple during their visit.
