Pirate Birthday Party for Prince Taufa’ahau Manumataongo

Prince Taufa’ahau Manumataongo, who would become king of Tonga in the future, turned 1 year-old today Saturday 10.

As the only son of Prince Tupoutoa and Princess Sinaitakala celebrating a birthday definitely can’t be boring for the cutie.

A pirate birthday party was organised for the little prince yesterday where kids, dressing up as pirates, arrived in Pangai Lahi with plastic swords, eye patches and had their faces painted to entertain the prince’s birhtday.

A formal celebration for His Royal Higness and the royal family is held at the Royal Palace today includes prayer service and a  feast.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
