Blessing ceremony for Tau’akipulu palace as Ha’apai gears up for king’s arrival

    The Ha’apai residents will gather in traditional and religious ceremonies to bless the Tau’akipulu royal palace in Pangai this weekend.

    The palace was partly damaged while tropical cyclone Ian struck the island groups in January 2014.

    It followed with a renovation which was completed recently and the palace was planned to be blessed while the king is in Ha’apai for this year’s royal show.

    Their Majesties King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u will arrive in Pangai from Niuafoʻou today.

    They were in Niuafoʻou yesterday as guests of honour during the island’s agricultural show 2017.

    King Tupou VI was expected to open the Ha’apai agricultural show next week Tuesday 18 July.

    He will open the ‘Eua show on 22 July before the Tongatapu show on 29 July.
