The correct term for the Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the Commonwealth of which Jamaica is a part. The term “Queen of Jamaica” in meaningless and I have never seen this used before, because whilst you may use the term Sovereign Head of State no other countries in the Commonwealth, Australia, Ghana to New Zealand, etc who are also part of the Commonwealth refer to this term Queen of Australia, Queen of Ghana or Queen of New Zealand. This can only be used as a local term (slang) but is not an official term.


I am afraid the many Americans who frequently edit these pages, and have appointed themselves so-called “experts” do not have a basic understanding of how the real world works. Constantly in Wikipeadia they are slipping in these nonsensical terms as “fact!”
