Description

The government of the internationally unrecognised state of Rhodesia recognised Queen Elizabeth II as the official Head of State from 1965 to 1970. The highest official of Rhodesia held the title "Officer Administering the Government" (OAtG) as he acted in lieu of the official Governor, who remained at his post but was ignored.

Queen Elizabeth II herself did not recognise her title in Rhodesia.

After Rhodesia became a republic in March 1970, the President replaced the OAtG as the highest official and the Governor returned to London.
