SUVA, Fiji – Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, arrived on the island of Fiji on Tuesday the drink: kava.
But the highlight came later as members of Fiji’s Nakelo City, their warriors dance, reports CBS News correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti. The traditional dance called Meke has gone down for generations. In fact, this whole ceremony is identical to that developed 65 years ago. The program in Albert Park was surrounded by warriors who performed the club and speardans ̵

The year was 1953 when Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip arrived in the island as part of their first commonwealth tour. On this southern Pacific, the Queen’s popularity has faded decades since gone down to its next generation.
