The pop singer, Rihanna, attended a special ceremony with the Prince of Wales as Barbados removed the Queen of England as the head of state.
The event took place in Rihanna’s hometown of Bridgetown and Prime Minister Mottley stated, “May you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation by your works, by your actions.” Of course, that was a nod to the singer’s hit track “Diamonds” which was released back in 2012.
