Kate Middleton and Prince William dazzle on day two of Jamaica’s royal tour – LIVE UPDATES

William and Kate started their day with a visit to the Prime Minister’s office in Jamaica House, Kingston. At 49, Mr Holness is the country’s youngest leader to date and promised to turn Jamaica from a constitutional monarchy into a republic during his election campaign.

He also served as Prime Minister from October 2011 to January 2012, succeeding Bruce Golding, but lost to Portia Simpson-Miller in an early December 2011 election.

He was elected to lead the country in 2016, and when he took office, he said his government would present a bill to replace the queen with “a non-executive president as head of state”.

In 2020, the Labor Party won a landslide in yet another parliamentary election, giving him another term as prime minister, but a timeline for a referendum required by law to make the change has not yet been given.

Amendments to the Jamaica Constitution must be approved by a two-thirds majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, but certain sections, including all those relating to the monarchy, can only be amended by a referendum.
