  1. Oooh I remember him from the 2016 Olympics in Rio. I understand he had competition in the “shirtless, oiled, muscled flag bearer” category this year.

  2. Yes, he’s gorgeous! At risk of being pedantic, Tonga is a monarchy not a republic, though some of the diaspora here in Australia might wish so. It’s an idiosynchratic system borrowed from Britain. Photos of their Queen Salote might be good for your vintage royalty posts, Matthew!
