Does anyone know if there are photographs of the various government-houses used by the various Governors-General in the Caribbean? I have seen photos of a few, but not all. For that matter, is there a comprehensivewebsite of book that would have photos of all British government-houses still around?

Thanks.

Wikipedia has a complete list of Government Houses , including ones in the Carribbean, at Government Houses of the British Empire and Commonwealth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .
I can also not find any pictures.

I missed the Queen's and Prince Philip's visit to Bermuda by two days.
The whole island was getting ready and very anxious to receive them.
As they said, they were very emotional since they knew this would be the last time they'd see them together. Bermudians love the Queen and the Duke.

VHeadline.com - Queen Elizabeth II should relinquish power over St. Vincent & The Grenadines

During his Sunday radio address from Cumana (Sucre), President Chavez has called on Queen Elizabeth II to grant independence to St Vincent & The Grenadines located in the Eastern Caribbean.

=============

If that's accurately reported, what a fascinating display of ignorance it is. And it's the second time in less than a month.

I don't understand why he's sticking his nose in other countries politics.
He seems to have a fiery temper.

In some way I hope that HM 'takes a leaf out of" HM Juan Carlos I book with regards this nouveau 'mouth from the south' and gives the lad a public tongue lashing.

Well, when petty tyrants start screwing up the economy at home they start looking for foreign adventures. Let's hope his army stays home.

I hate it when people fail to see that the Queen holds not 1, but 16 jobs as Head of State. Mr Chavez also forgets that the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines decided to keep the Queen quite recently.

I don't know that I would classify the referendum as "decid[ing] to keep the Queen." It was an omnibus referendum that had several other changes to the constitutional structure of the country, and from what I can tell those (mainly the power of the Prime Minister) were the main things being voted on. The monarchy seemed to be a secondary issue that was only the main focus of the coverage in foreign media.

But I still don't know where Chavez came up with the idea that St Vincent and the Grenadines don't have independence, or that the Queen can just change the constitution of any country on a whim.

Because they see it through their own distorted republican eyes, and fail forever to find the truth (which itself is as alien to them as walking on the moon 100 years ago) of the matter.

The Bahamas has announced that its governor general is stepping down.

A government statement issued Sunday says Arthur D. Hanna will retire April 14.

The Tribune

Tomorrow's Speech From the Throne at the opening of Parliament will be read by the Bahamas' new Governor General, Sir Arthur Foulkes.

As was predicted by The Tribune earlier this week, The Cabinet Office has just announced that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has appointed Sir Arthur Governor-General of The Bahamas and her official representative in The Bahamas.

I wish him well in his new post. I hope the 'job' does not get the better of him in terms of his health either.

Actually, Queen Elizabeth is no longer the monarch over the Bahamas. I think they gained their independence from her in the '70s. Although a lot of what they do is still adapted from the British.

They are a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, and still have Queen Elizabeth as there monarch.

What exactly do you mean when you say Queen Elizabeth is their monarch? Bahamas gained independence in the '70s, which makes them an independent nation. Although, like I said earlier, Bahamas still follows traditions from the UK. Bahamas is very "lenient" with the situation because they like the Queen, so they have not totally pulled away from her.

The Bahamas is an independent constitutional monarchy. Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the Bahamas in a role that is legally separate from her role as Queen of the United Kingdom.

And also very much like Canada. Canada has her own parliament and Governor General but Queen Elizabeth is still regarded as the Head of State as they are still a British Commonweath nation and recognize the Queen as such.

PM wants monarchy replaced before 50th anniversary of Independence - News - JamaicaObserver.com

Prime Minister Bruce Golding says he wants Jamaica to mark its 50th year of Independence free of its colonial ties to the British monarchy and has proposed that the team assigned to resolve the contentious issue of our final court of appeal examine the method by which a head of state will be appointed under republican status.
