As Queen Elizabeth II’s health conditions are put into question by many who surround her, Jamaica is rumored, as of Tuesday, March 22, to be in the process of removing her as head of state after a much-touted visit by Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, in the middle of a diplomatic tour across many of the former British territories in the Caribbean, have been largely met with opposition in many of the places that they have visited, with many Jamaicans angrily demanding reparations for centuries of slavery, according to the Associated Press.

“We see no reason to celebrate 70 years of the ascension of your grandmother to the British throne because her leadership, and that of her predecessors, have perpetuated the greatest human rights tragedy in the history of humankind,” a statement from 70 Jamaican leaders said.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s tour of the Caribbean has been met with stark opposition and a lingering fear of the removal of the Queen as the head of state in these countries, with a visit in Belize being cut short after opposition from the locals, Complex reported.

Now, the two royals will be greeted with protests from Jamaicans asking for reparations for their past enslavement of the country, while sources close to the government say that the country will be removing the Queen as their Head of State once Prince William and Kate finish their diplomatic tour.

“I’m trying to make sense myself as to why they are hosting William and Kate knowing very well they are going to remove the Queen as Head of State. And that this diplomatic charm mission appears to be a complete waste of time,” reporter Noel Phillips said.

The Queen herself has not been in the best of health recently, with sources from Buckingham Palace saying that she has been having a hard time walking, to the point where she may need to use a wheelchair to attend events in the future, according to 7 News Australia.

“I have heard that the reason she’s not doing a lot of the events that she should be doing and canceling them is because she is in a wheelchair,” actor Christopher Biggins said. “She doesn’t want to be seen, she’s very proud. It’s so very sad and I hope she is able to make her anniversary celebrations.”
