Queen Salote, Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen, London, Tongas
The Queen Salote of the Tongas. Queen Salote in London during the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. It was a rainy day and Queen Salote refused to close the top of her carriage in order to show respect to a higher ranking person or superior according to Tongan custom. It is because of this humble gesture she is still remembered by people who were there, or who had watched the event on their black and white television set. June 1953 D2926
