Back in September, the model was announced as The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust Platinum Jubilee Global Ambassador, where she will be involved with championing the work of young leaders. 

Naomi appointment as ambassador will keep the institution relevant amid pressure from countries to remove the monarch as head of state, according to the trust’s boss. 

Christopher Kelly, the chief executive of the charity, said the appointment of celebrities from more diverse backgrounds and women of colour will help the Commonwealth remain relevant.

Christopher said Naomi could be a ‘positive’ asset for the wider Commonwealth as well as the trust itself, The Telegraph reported.

He told the publication: ‘It will be very positive to have someone who not only transcends different countries and nationalities because she is a global superstar but who is also a British woman with Caribbean roots, who has got to the very top.’

He said he believes it’s a ‘positive thing’ that Britain have people of colour across the ‘top echelons’ of the business, political and social spheres ‘in a way that many other countries don’t’.

Christopher added that the multi-talented star, whom Nelson Mandela has referred to as his ‘honorary granddaughter’, was in a position to represent a modern picture of the Commonwealth.
