Prime Minister Freundel Stuart is now a member of the Queen’s Privy Council, which means that he carries the title “Right Honourable”.
The UK Prime Minister’s Office announced in a press release: “The Queen has been pleased to approve that the Honourable Freundel Jerome Stuart QC, MP, be sworn of Her Majesty’s most Honourable Privy Council.”
Stuart said he is “humbled” by the elevation.
“I have travelled a long distance from very humble beginnings to where I am now. I have scaled many hurdles and negotiated many potholes along the way. I have always set very high standards for myself, chosen my friends carefully, and never allowed the means by which I have lived to outdistance the ends for which I have lived. I have no regrets about those choices and would recommend them without hesitation to the young people of Barbados,” he said.
