Forthcoming Republic of BarbadosEdit

I propose that a new Wikipedia page be created for the Republic of Barbados which will come into existence on November 30, 2021. This would seem to follow the custom for other former Commonwealth realms that became republics. Jjfun3695 (talk) 21:20, 25 October 2021 (UTC)
