I'm pretty sure she's visited all except Cameroon.

Edit: Here's a Wikipedia list of all Commonwealth visits (including British overseas territories) she has made.

Whether or not William would visit all of those countries would, I imagine, be primarily a function of the length of his reign.

That would depend IF there is still a job for him after his grandmother and then father. Who can say with any certainty whether there will even be a commonwealth of nations in 20 - 60 years.

Since none of us have a crystal ball and can't see into the future we don't know with any certainty that there will be a commonwealth even 10 years from now. Charles could be out of a job too. But I prefer to think positively and since this is the William and Commonwealth Realms thread, hence my question.

Thank you wbenson for your helpful reply. It's amazing that the Queen has visited all of those places. Course it's taken her a long time so I understand what you mean by your response.
I also noticed they seem to have a Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting every couple of years. The last one was in 2007 so I'm guessing they're having another one this year. I wonder what they discuss at these meetings.

It is a large Commonwealth I must say! I don't think there's any other alliance quite like it. As an Australian I have to admit I rather like the Queen as our figurehead even though she doesn't really do anything. I guess I'm more sentimental about it since I'm a monarchist and also because of our past links to Great Britain. Plus I still have family there. I agree that it won't affect us too much to sever the ties and we do want our independence but a part of me will miss having a Queen. I guess I want the best of both worlds.
