President Maithripala Sirisena today (Apr. 19) joined the commencement of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting at Buckingham Palace.
 
The Queen is hosting the event.
 
Queen Elizabeth, who has been the group’s symbolic figurehead since 1952, gave up long-haul travel in support of the biennial summit in 2013 and the 2020 gathering is set to be held in Malaysia.
 
On the closing day on Friday, leaders are expected to discuss who should follow Queen Elizabeth in the role.
 
The position is not hereditary, but Prince Charles, who is also the heir to the thrones of 16 Commonwealth nations, is expected to get the nod, despite some unease among ardent republicans.
