As a BOT, Her Majesty the Queen is Bermuda's official Head of State. which costs the Bermuda taxpayers million a year.The Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Bermuda (see next paragraph) is appointed by The Queen (on the advice of the British Government in London) after consultation with the Premier of Bermuda. It is for the upkeep of Government House and its 30-plus pristine acres and for the Governor and Deputy Governor's salary and their cars, their security, their travel, their housekeepers, their domestic staff and their accommodation.First, he is the primary source of information from Bermuda to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on the state of affairs in Bermuda.Second, he is the voice of the United Kingdom and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for advising Bermudians what they can and cannot do under British/United Kingdom laws.See Bermuda History with the Old and New Worlds since 1500.It has been completely self-governing (except for defence, external affairs and internal security, which are reserved British-UK powers) for centuries, is the smallest of all the fourteen BOTs (see below) yet has by far the most evolved British Parliament in the world after Westminster in London.
Only in external affairs and defence does the UK have a controlling interest.
His Excellency the Governor has his own Flag of Office.
It is a Union Jack but in its center it has the Bermuda arms on a white disc encircled by a green garland.
The salaries of the Governor, Deputy Governor and their staff are paid by Bermuda's taxpayers, NOT the British Government.
Bermuda, despite its tiny size, is wealthy enough not to need the support from the United Kingdom some other overseas territories get.
