Queen Elizabeth II was once monarch of Fiji. This video from  ‘Medeas biggest fan’ considers  how she is viewed in the Republic of the Fiji Islands today.

General Sitiveni Rabuka, the military coup leader who became the first man to oust a British monarch since Oliver Cromwell, is interviewed.  He was to aplogise to The Queen in 1997, and ask her back.  Her Majesty replied “Let the people decide”.

 

The first Royal Visit to Fiji took place in Fiji in 1953. This video is on the Travel Film Archive chanel.
