“If these photos don’t send Tongan tourism through the roof, I don’t know what will,” an article in the New Zealand Herald said.

The Prime Minister’s eldest son, Siaosi Pōhiva, wrote on Facebook:

“We mostly spent our times looking for matters that are worthless and did not help built up our life and living and ignore important things.

“We criticise things that wasted our times and ignore things much more important. No wonder the Lord loves the little children as the essence of eternal life is hidden in them.

“I wish that Tonga could have this.”

Prime Minister Pōhiva’s daughter Lautala Tapueluelu said:

“A hug that is, yes it is. I bet they were longing to meet children and people in person. Sitauti your mum was smart, must be a huge fan of both.”

PM Pohiva’s daughter Teisa made this comment about the photographs which have appeared of her nephew’s encounter with the royal couple:

“How very lucky was my little nephew Sitauti Sebastian to have received a royal hug from our favourite royal couple.

“No doubt what they had wanted all along and not kept cooped up in mansions and fancy vehicles like they going to catch some disease if they interact with us commoners!”
