For two years from Malawi's independence in 1964, the country was a monarchy with Elizabeth II as its queen. She was also the Sovereign of the other Commonwealth realms, including the United Kingdom. The 1964 Constitution of Malawi vested executive power in the Queen, as head of state, though her constitutional roles were delegated to her representative, the Governor-General. Malawi was granted independence by the Parliament of the United Kingdom's Malawi Independence Act 1964, which transformed the Protectorate of Nyasaland into an independent sovereign state called Malawi.

  • For two years from Malawi's independence in 1964, the country was a monarchy with Elizabeth II as its queen. She was also the Sovereign of the other Commonwealth realms, including the United Kingdom. The 1964 Constitution of Malawi vested executive power in the Queen, as head of state, though her constitutional roles were delegated to her representative, the Governor-General. Malawi was granted independence by the Parliament of the United Kingdom's Malawi Independence Act 1964, which transformed the Protectorate of Nyasaland into an independent sovereign state called Malawi. The roles of the Queen and the Governor-General in Malawi were abolished on 6 July 1966, when Malawi became a republic within the Commonwealth, with the President of Malawi as head of state. The Queen visited Malawi 22–25 July 1979. The Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre was opened in 1958 and is the largest hospital in Malawi. (en)
