Ghana was a Commonwealth realm between 6 March 1957 and 1 July 1960, before it became the Republic of Ghana. It was the first western African country to achieve independence. British rule ended in 1957, when the Ghana Independence Act 1957 transformed the British Crown Colony of the Gold Coast into the independent sovereign Commonwealth realm of Ghana. The British monarch remained head of state, and Ghana shared its Sovereign with the other Commonwealth realms. The monarch's constitutional roles were mostly delegated to the Governor-General of Ghana. The royal succession was governed by the English Act of Settlement of 1701. The following governors-general held office in Ghana during the commonwealth realm period:

  • Ghana was van 1957 tot 1960 een onafhankelijk land binnen het Gemenebest van Naties met de Britse koningin Elizabeth II als staatshoofd (een Commonwealth realm). Het land ontstond op 6 maart 1957 toen de Britse Goudkust onafhankelijk werd van het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Het was het eerste Afrikaanse land ten zuiden van de Sahara dat tijdens de golf van dekolonisatie na de Tweede Wereldoorlog onafhankelijk werd. Bij een referendum op 27 april 1960 koos 88,47% van de bevolking voor afschaffing van de monarchie. Als gevolg daarvan werd op 1 juli 1960 de Republiek Ghana uitgeroepen. (nl)
