A Man is a novel written by Oriana Fallaci chronicling her relationship with the attempted assassin of Greek dictator George Papadopoulos.
The Prince of Wales has flown into Barbados for Monday's handover ceremony in National Heroes Square as a representative of The Queen but also in his role as her successor as head of The Commonwealth - Barbados will remain in The Commonwealth .
He didn't have to come to Barbados . In doing so he sends a message of unity and avoids looking like The Partner that has been cast aside. But however you look at this, it is a break-up - a constitutional uncoupling.'It was time'
Republicanism has been rumbling for some Time In Barbados . Prime Minister Mia Mottley described it as A Chance for The Island to assert itself and show greater self-confidence. " It was time, " She Said , " to fully leave our colonial past behind. "
In a wide-ranging interview with The Bbc She Said dismantling aspects of a colonial legacy were not " antagonistic or adversarial". She spoke of her respect for The Queen but said The Time had come for a new kind of relationship with the UK where the Two Countries would remain close partners.
She also stressed her personal friendship with Prince Charles. The two recently met at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow and She Said she was happy he had accepted The Invitation to attend the handover ceremony.
Prince Charles will return the compliment in a speech he makes at the handover ceremony on Monday evening. He will focus on reaffirming friendships and sharing common goals and values.
Being head of state here is a largely symbolic role but symbols matter. Framed portraits of Queen Elizabeth hang in government buildings. Barbados has a Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The Police , postal workers and prison officers all wear a badge on their uniform with a crown insignia.
Much of that will now change.
