And the winner is.....
THE QUEEN OF TONGA!
This week's favourite person
Won her place in the hall of fame by virtue of a simple, and wonderfully
human gesture during the Queen's coronation Ceremony of 1953.
Queen Salote of Tonga, gave instructions that her horse carriage was to be kept open
so that the drenched crowds along the procession route could see her.
Smiling broadly, and soaked to the skin, Salote Tupou III broke with tradition and endeared herself to a whole nation with this spontaneous and warm show of ordinariness
