On Friday, the head of the British federal government met in Buckingham Palace, accepting a previous proposal by Queen Elizabeth S and agreeing to make Prince Charles the head of the Commonwealth. According to the regulations, the head of the Commonwealth is different from the throne, not the hereditary system, but the members of the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth is a loose international organization founded in 1931. It has 53 member countries, mainly former British colonial countries and overseas territories. That is to say, most of the Commonwealth members of the Commonwealth have been part of the British Empire in history. Some people believe that the reign of Queen Elizabeth is the key to the Commonwealths past years. However, with the passing of history, the cohesion of the Federation is changing, and the future is full of uncertainties. Now, the queen is going to step down to the eldest son. What kind of mess is Charles taking over? The gap between Member States The Commonwealth member states cover 2 billion 400 million of the population, accounting for 1/3 of the worlds population. This is a huge and intricate Post Colonial Club. The official language of many member states in the Federation is English, and the judicial system is similar to that in Britain. Members recognize the state order based on democracy and the rule of law. However, because member states are far apart in culture, economy and politics, their values and political positions are often in conflict. According to BBC, there have always been cheap points within the Commonwealth. White countries such as Australia, Britain, Canada and other white countries are regarded as top class members, while African countries and many small island states belong to lower members. In fact, in the history of British Commonwealth, there were members who were reluctant to take the initiative or were forced to withdraw from the Commonwealth. For example, Zimbabwe was suspended from membership of the Commonwealth because of manipulation of the election and was withdrawn from the Commonwealth in 2003. South Africa also withdrew from the Commonwealth in 1961 because of apartheid policy, but it returned again in 1994. For Prince Charles, how to maintain and consolidate the Federation Based on historical factors is a major challenge in the future. Fortunately, Prince Charles, after all, has a royal lineage, though not as closely related to the former colony as Queen Elizabeth, but also a continuation of the leading edge. At the Commonwealth summit, Charles told leaders: In my memory, the Republic of China occupies a very important position in my life. I hope this summit will renew the relationship between the Republic and the general public and establish the cornerstone for future generations. The future of off Europe Off Europe is a topic that Britain and the British Commonwealth can not get around. Some analysts believe that the Commonwealth is the Straits of Britain after off Europe, which provides the UK with the choice of international trade outside the EU. In 2016, the British exports to the Commonwealth were equal to that of Germany, accounting for 8.9% of the total British exports. Imports from the Commonwealth are equivalent to imports from China, accounting for 7.8% of the total British imports. On the other hand, the common language and judicial system have saved many trade costs. According to the Commonwealth Secretariat, the cost of trade between member countries is 19% lower than the average cost of Global trade. However, other members of the Commonwealth have reservations about Europe, and even many countries oppose Britain from Europe. After leaving Europe, only Malta and Cyprus remain in the EU. Gibraltar and other geographically and economically depend on Europes overseas territories and feel uneasy about their future. Other countries are worried about the difficulty of getting into the British market after the exit of the European Union, and the state is worried about a future negotiation with the European Union, and no more British thighs. However, the island and developing countries still want the Commonwealth to provide reliable and reliable assistance to the Commonwealth on issues such as climate change, environmental protection and tourism development. It seems that the new title of Prince Charles has brought a lot of burden. As to whether this new title is trial before the Queens preposition, or is it just a consolation prize, let us wait and see.
