The Governor of Anguilla is the representative of the British Monarch in the United Kingdom's Overseas Territory of Anguilla. The Governor is appointed by the monarch on the advice of the British government. 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 Office of the Governor has its own flag in Anguilla, the Union Flag defaced with the territory's coat of arms.

The current Governor is Christina Scott, who was appointed on 23 July 2013.
