Bahamas / King Charles III

Bahamas - King Charles III (8 September 2022 - )

The monarchy of the Bahamas is a system of government in which a hereditary monarch is the sovereign of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

The Bahamas share the Sovereign with the other Commonwealth realms. The Queen did not personally reside in the islands, and most of her constitutional roles were therefore delegated to her representative in the country, the Governor-General of the Bahamas. Royal succession is governed by the English Act of Settlement of 1701, which is part of constitutional law.

King Charles III acceded to the throne on 8 September 2022 upon the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, becoming the Head of State of a number of realms of the Crown, including the Bahamas.

In the Bahamas King Charles III is styled: "His Majesty Charles the Third, by the Grace of God, King of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and of His other Realms and Territories King, Head of the Commonwealth" (thus omitting the "Defender of the Faith" title used in the United Kingdom and some other realms).

The Bahamian monarch, besides reigning in the Bahamas, separately serves as monarch for a number of other Commonwealth countries known as Commonwealth realms. This developed from the former colonial relationship of these countries to Great Britain, but they are now independent of each other and are legally distinct.
