He said: “Prince Charles doesn’t need to worry about the Commonwealth when he becomes king.
“There won’t be one!”
On Wednesday, Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness told Prince William and Kate that the Commonwealth intends to be fully independent of the UK and the Monarchy.
The surprise announcement comes as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Jamaica as part of their royal tour of the Caribbean and Central America.
In the short term, Mr Holness said that it is the intention that Jamaica will follow the example of Barbados which severed ties with the crown last year and become a republic.
He said: “We are moving on. We intend to…fulfil our true ambitions and destiny as an independent, developed, prosperous country.”
The royal visit has been mired in controversy with protests and demands for repatriations for slavery.
The Duke has also weighed into the controversy around slavery condemning it in a speech on Wednesday.
