Leaders from the 53-nation Commonwealth nations are meeting in Windsor Castle Friday, without official agenda but are widely expected to discuss protecting the world's oceans, cybersecurity and who should become the next leader of the Commonwealth.
The Commonwealth Heads of Government summit on Friday confirmed Rwanda as host of the next meeting of the bloc - knocking out countries with more deeper historic links to Britain.
The Queen had said it was her "sincere wish" that Prince Charles would follow her in the role.
The Commonwealth's political leaders reached the agreement after months of speculation over moves to separate the role from the British monarchy because so numerous member nations do not recognise the Queen as their head of state.
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Thursday, 19th April, 2018, when he delivered a toast to Queen Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace, on the occasion of the Queen's Dinner for Heads of Government of the Commonwealth.
The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau said he "very much agree" with the desire of the Queen.
The position is largely symbolic, but the queen's commitment has been a major force behind the survival of the Commonwealth.
Other topics on the agenda at the Commonwealth meeting include cybersecurity, trade and protecting the world's oceans.
She said it was "fitting" Prince Charles would succeed her due to his "proud support" of the Commonwealth "for more than four decades". Former Portuguese colony Mozambique is also a Commonwealth member, and Togo is considering joining. Independent countries from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific have joined The Commonwealth over the years.
During her press conference address Mrs May said that the Chogm summit had "demonstrated that the Commonwealth is united not only by a common history but by a common future - a future in which we work together for the benefit of all our citizens and for the wider world".
The government says they accidentally fell afoul of new measures meant to prevent illegal immigration.
But opposition politicians say the treatment of the "Windrush generation" - named for the ship Empire Windrush, which brought the first big group of post-war Caribbean immigrants to Britain in 1948 - is cause for national shame. "They are part of us".
"We are committed to a stronger Commonwealth Secretariat, including through sustainable financing".
