Commonwealth Question
« on: May 02, 2012, 09:11:06 AM »
What constitutes membership in the British Commonwealth?

Are all former colonies automatically included?

May an independent nation opt out?

That video is fantastic!

As for your 3rd question: according to the official website of the British Monarchy, membership is voluntary so yes, an independent country can opt out.
