The Governor is the highest authority on Anguilla, but daily business is handled by local Anguillan elected officials.[1] The main role of the Governor is to appoint the Chief Minister of Anguilla.

The Governor's official residence is Government House at Old Ta. The Governor has his own flag, the Union Flag defaced with the Coat of Arms of Anguilla.
