    Do you know the Queen of Tonga? Although she died in 1965, British Pathé has lots of footage of Queen Salote. And during the Fifties, for a very brief moment, she was a celebrity. What do you know about her? Let us know in the comments!

The annoying guy who said that his grandmother shared a car with the Queen of Tonga sounds a bit far fetched and made up and how disrespectful of him to refer to the Monarch by simply their Christian name, the title of Queen (or King) should always be prefixed by Queen (or King) or the title of Her (His) Majesty Queen (King) and then the Christian name. Finally, his pronunciation of Tonga is incorrect

The British narrator can pronounceTonga correctly, the American's can never get it right. Also they can't pronounce Hawaii correctly either.

Sorry YOU ARE WRONG my beloved HAWAI'I WAS COLONIZED BY FORCE!!! We Kanaka Māoli consider our home to be an illegally occupied Kingdom, because it was snatched from our Queen Liliuokalani's royal hand under force and threat from the US military. She ceded our Sovereign Kingdom at gun point, and was locked in the basement of her own palace until her death. Get your facts right. To this day, Native Hawaiians still resent the USA and it's government for what it did in the past and what it is doing today!! Amerikkka doesn't take care of us, they just take from us, and destroy our beloved home. Please stop spreading lies.

This may have been said already but Hawaii never gave up it's sovereignty. I was a coup with Sanford Dole Leading the way......It was a blatant take over by the US.

You are correct. Her late Majesty, Queen Salote of Tonga was much taller and had a lighter complexion.

Actually when you mention, "Tonga never gave up it's sovereignty like Hawaii or Fiji". You need to be specific on what your saying. The Kingdom of Tonga was and is still the only Polynesian Kingdom that was never colonized by foreign ruler, they never loss self-governing indigenous rule. The Kingdom of Fiji was ceded to Queen Victoria of Great Britain by the Fijian Warlord/King Seru Epenisa Cakobau. And the Kingdom of Hawaii was taken from Queen Lili'uokalani and her people by force and annexed to the USA.

Queen Salote is an enduring image of proper fakatonga (The Tongan Way) ... what fabulous footage of home (even the bats!) and also of the mauluulu (one of the kinds of dance) - thanks BP

Interesting!  The Queen of Tonga here looks almost like the Queen of England did in the 90's - 2000's! Flying foxes are AWESOME!  They are gravely endangered now, so I wouldn't be too afraid of bats that are nearly 5 feet long.  They eat fruit and bugs, you'd be fairly safe!

I don't wish to be rude. But, why is an American man introducing this?? This is British Pathé. Not American Pathé. I'm sure America has some very fine old newsreels of it's own. Is this a veiled attempt to undermine British Pathé? To cheapen it somehow? I would be more understanding if he wasn't talking as though if he were introducing a wrestling match.

Okay, this is better than the way it was done before. The dude is giving context to the videos instead of it being an interruption/jump in the playlist. I know nothing about the Queen of Tonga so this is an appropriate introduction from the Pathe archives.

You have the option of going into thePathe archives and finding the whole subject video. The Sunday videos are a quick taste of a section of the archive. I watched the video where he explains that British Pathe wants to promote videos that have 1 or 2 views. There is some really obscure content and this is Pathe's way of trying to expand the audience.

Is that guy the owner of the channel? The old British narrator would have done just fine, Good to see the old footage though i think that guy should have a separate channel and engage with the audience in a Google hangout or something,
