Random Royal Appreciation: A Royal Wedding in Tonga
This year is turning out to have its fair share of royal weddings, isn't it? Last week, Crown Prince Tupouto'a 'Ulukalala of Tonga married Sinaitakala Tu'imatamoana 'i Fanakavakilangi Fakafanua.
All judgements aside, this is a royal wedding and there are always reasons to celebrate. It's been an eventful royal year in Tonga: King George Tupou V died in March and was succeeded by his younger brother. This wedding had initially been planned for May but was postponed due to mourning. It's also the first time a crown prince has married in Tonga for 65 years, and that's reason enough to declare a celebration and wish the couple the best - despite the headlines.
