President Paula-Mae Weekes has carried a handkerchief with her to Queen Elizabeth II's funeral today because she feels she may shed a tear for the monarch.
Weekes made the comment during an interview with Dominic Waghorn the International Affairs Editor at Sky News.
Weekes is among hundreds of dignitaries currently in England to attend the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
"What would be your emotion...what would be going on through your mind as you sit in the Abbey looking back on the era?" Waghorn said.
"I thought well I would really have to carry my handkerchief with me because it is quite possible that I may shed a tear for the queen," Weekes said.
During the interview Weekes predicted under King Charles III's reign that more Commonwealth countries will give up the monarch as Head of State.
"There is a feeling now after all these years that the Sovereign should really be the people and to have a Sovereign from a country that is far removed not only geographically but culturally might not necessarily be the best thing at this time of the nation's development so I think that perhaps the process will begin speeding up in various territories," Weekes stated.
