The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is a major gathering of the heads of state from all nations in the Commonwealth. Each meeting generally has a key theme and a series of topics that the leaders discuss before establishing some sort of action plan and perhaps making some major declarations.

The meeting focused around altering the rules for royal succession and the establishment of a Charter of the Commonwealth.
