In a rarely seen moment, three descendants of Philippine presidents are captured in one awe-inspiring photo.
Mayor Angelo Aguinaldo of Kawit, Cavite posted on Facebook on Thursday a picture of him photobombing with former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio.
The three politicians happened to be among the guests of the star-studded wedding of Jed Patricio and Gianna Revilla, daughter of Ramon “Bong” Revilla and Lani Marcado Revilla.
But for some netizens, there is more about their photo as they were quick to notice that the three are actually relatives of the country’s presidents.
Bongbong is the son and namesake of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, whose later part of presidency was tainted by rampant corruption and human rights abuses.
His father ruled the country starting from1965, declared martial law in 1972 to 1981, and ousted by the EDSA People Power Revolution in 1986.
On the other hand, Angelo is the son of late Kawit mayor Reynaldo “Tik” Aguinaldo.
He is also the great grandchild of the country’s first and youngest president, General Emilio Aguinaldo, who was among the key figures of the revolution.
Gen. Aguinaldo declared the historic Philippine independence from Spain on June 12, 1898 at his abode-turned-shrine in Brgy Kaingen, Kawit, Cavite.
Meanwhile, Sara is the daughter of the country’s current president, Rodrigo Duterte. She recently withdrew her reelection bid and became the newest member of Lakas-CMD party.
Bongbong is vying for a presidential post, Angelo is seeking for reelection, while Sara has yet to announce her plans as of writing in the May 2022 national and local elections.
