Governor-General of Barbados
The Governor-General of Barbados is a vice-regal representative of the Queen of Barbados; and regularly acts within the nation's Office of the Governor-General as the nation's Head of State. Under the Government's Table of Precedence for Barbados, the Office of the Governor-General of Barbados is regarded as being the most important of all personnel of the Barbados Government.
The Office is accorded legitimacy by Chapter IV of the Constitution of Barbados. The Governor-General is appointed by the Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister of Barbados. The Governor-General exercises executive powers and who assents to bills in her name before they can become promulgated into law. The Barbados Constitution limits the powers of the Governor-General (known as a "Constitutional monarchy" system of governance), however. This effectively limits the powers of the Queen as it does the Governor-General, who in most instances, exercises authority on the advice of the Prime Minister, or other persons or bodies within Barbados.
The Office of the Governor-General was established when Barbados gained independence in 1966. Since the settlement of Barbados by the British, Barbados has had 68 Governors and subsequently 6 Governors-General.
