Remember Queen Salote?

The new king of Tonga's grandmother, Queen Salote, was an outstanding woman much loved by the Tongan people.

Also, in London when Queen Elizabeth was crowned, Queen Salote rode in an open carriage and delighted the crowds with her presence.

For stories and photos of the preparation for the funeral of the late King of Tonga go to Matangi, the Tongan newspaper. As the funeral has been held today, there will be many stories on various web sites.
