Tongan Royal Palace

We rarely see pictures from inside the Tongan Royal Palace however I have located some images and will upload some more. You can see the difference between the original structure and the new extensions.
Have also found rare views from the balcony.

The Crown Prince is in Australia for studies and is with his family

I see they're still insisting on using black paint, although thankfully, not as much as they used to have. The door into the Throne Room looks as if it has glass panels now.
I have a few more photos of the Royal Palace to share

Very good pictures, thanks for posting them. The room with the dresser and chairs is the old Privy Council Chamber which doubled as a dining room and I'm glad to see they have covered the wood panneling. They are obviously retaining the pelmets, which I believe are the work of Queen Salote, and putting them up above the new doors which replaced the windows.

More photos of the Villa

This is from the final night royal vigil in 2004 for the son of Tupou IV who was stripped of his title after marrying without the approval of his father. After the early passing of wife, he returned to Tonga and was elevated to Lord status (not back to HRH or back into the line of succession) and was married to a grand daughter of the head of state of Samoa. Tupou V before his coronation elevated their eldest son to HSH and gave him the title with estates of Tungi, a title held by the husband of HM Queen Salote.
