Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Members of the Duterte family arrived in Manila on Tuesday, two days ahead of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte's inauguration in Malacañan Palace.

Duterte's ex-wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman, touched down at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) before noontime — along with their eldest son, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, and grandchildren.

Later in the afternoon, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio also landed.

Only 150 guests had been invited to the June 30 inaugural — composed of campaign donors and select supporters.

Veronica or "Kitty," Duterte's youngest child by common-law wife Honeylet Avanceña, is set to hold the Bible to be used in the oath-taking ceremony. The Bible belonged to Duterte's late mother, Soledad.

On the inaugural menu are mongo soup, durian tartlet, banana fritters, pan de sal and kesong puti (white cheese), longganisa and lumpiang ubod. For beverage, mango and dalandan juice.

Lisette Marquez, organizing committee member, said the team was sticking to Duterte's order to keep things simple.

Marquez added they would be very strict with screening the guests so that only those who had been invited would make it inside the Palace's Rizal Ceremonial Hall.
