Kawānanakoa in September 2012

Abigail Kinoiki Kekaulike Kawānanakoa (born April 23, 1926), sometimes called Kekau, is a member of the House of Kawānanakoa. She was born in Honolulu. She is called by many as a princess, a common honorary bestowed to descendants of titled subjects of the Kingdom of Hawaii, although she holds no official title and has no power or influence in the Hawaiian state government.

On 1 October 2017, Kawānanakoa married her partner of 21 years, Veronica Gail Worth, in Honolulu.[1]

In 2013 Kawānanakoa requested to be buried in a new crypt at the Royal Mausoleum of Hawaii at Mauna ʻAla directly adjacent to the Wylie Tomb. The request was approved by the State Land Board in April 26, 2013, but the decision has become controversial in the Hawaiian community.[2][3][4]
