The 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting takes place this week in the United Kingdom. This event is not only an opportunity for Commonwealth leaders to celebrate the Queen’s commitment to this intergovernmental organization over the course of her long reign but to consider the organization’s future. In contrast to the Crown, the position of Head of the Commonwealth does not automatically pass to the next generation and the current Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting is an opportunity to demonstrate the involvement of the Prince of Wales, Prince William and Prince Harry in Commonwealth issues including the environment and youth leadership.
I discussed the Queen, the royal family and the future of the Commonwealth in a series of CBC interviews on Tuesday April 17. Click here to listen to the interview with Dave White at CBC Whitehorse.
