Barbados officials announced on Tuesday that the country is set to remove Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and become a republic by next year.

“Having obtained independence over half a century ago, our country can be in no doubt about its capacity for self-governance. The time has come to fully leave our colonial past behind,” Barbados Governor-General Sandra Mason said in a Tuesday speech written by the nation's prime minister, Mia Mottley, ahead of the opening of Parliament.

“Barbadians want a Barbadian head of state. This is the ultimate statement of confidence of who we are and what we are capable of achieving,” she continued.

Does that have any relevant consequences other than being 'a statement of confidence', e.g. Commonwealth membership, cutting ties with the UK economically or whatever?
