The Barbadian monarch—Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II—is head of state and is represented locally by the Governor-General of Barbados—presently Sir Elliott Belgrave, GCMG, KA, CHB, QC. Both are advised on matters of the Barbadian state by the Prime Minister of Barbados, who is head of government. There are 30 representatives within the House of Assembly.
