Princess Angelika guest of honour at Tevita Pangai’s brother’s wedding

Princess Angelika Tuku’aho was guest of honour at the wedding of ‘Uluaki Taha Kilu and Christina Tupou Pangai in Australia.

‘Uluaki is a young brother of  Mate Ma’a Tonga rugby league star Tevita Pangai Jnr.

The Princess attended the wedding service ceremony as well as the couple’s first Sunday celebration, a spokesperson said.

The celebration early this month at the Free Church of Tonga in Canterbury, New South Wales brought together the newly married couple’s family members from overseas, including Tonga.

Pangai Jnr made his international debut in Tonga’s shock 28-22 win over New Zealand at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Last month he chose to play for New South Wales in 2019.

The 22-year-old was named in Blues’ coach Brad Fittler’s 32-man State of Origin training squad that will be held in Sydney this month.

The Brisbane Broncos prop is eligible to play for both New South Wales and Tonga because the Kingdom is still classified as a second-tier nation.

But he will be unable to play in Mate Ma’a Tonga’s scheduled rematch against the Kiwis next June because it clashes with Game Two of next year’s State of Origin series.

The main points

  • Princess Angelika Tuku’aho was guest of honour at the wedding of Uluaki Taha Kilu and Christina Tupou Pangai in Australia.
  • ‘Uluaki is a young brother of  Mate Ma’a Tonga rugby league star Tevita Pangai Jnr.
