  • Queen of Uganda was a title used by Elizabeth II while Uganda was an independent constitutional monarchy between 9 October 1962 and 9 October 1963. She was also the Sovereign of the other Commonwealth realms, including the United Kingdom. The Uganda Independence Act, passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1962, transformed the British Uganda Protectorate into an independent sovereign state on 9 October 1962. The Queen was ceremonial head of state with her constitutional roles delegated to the Governor-General of Uganda. The Parliament of Uganda amended the constitution in 1963, and on 9 October that year Uganda became a republic within the Commonwealth with a president as its head of state. The new Ugandan state was a republic, but the constituent sub-national kingdoms (Ankole, Buganda, Bunyoro, and Toro) continued in existence. The Queen visited Uganda on 28–30 April 1954 and 21–24 November 2007, the latter time to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2007. The Kazinga National Park, in the west of Uganda, was renamed Queen Elizabeth National Park in 1954 to commemorate her visit. (en)
