With fireworks and salvos, the Caribbean island of Barbados broke away from the British royal family on Tuesday – after 400 years! Special guest: England’s heir to the throne, Prince Charles (73), who had come on behalf of the Queen especially for the swearing-in of the new President, Judge Sandra Mason (72). And probably to be able to admire Special Guest No. 2 up close. That was none other than Pop Queen Rihanna (33), probably the most famous daughter in the country. And that’s why she was given a special honor. The richest singer in the world – according to “Forbes”, the value of her lingerie label “Savage X Fenty” is currently estimated at one billion dollars (around 825 million euros) – is now officially the new national heroine of Barbados. Appointed by Prime Minister Mia Mottley with the words: “May you continue to shine like a diamond and honor our nation in your work and actions.” An accolade for the Queen of Pop!
