The High Commissioner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, George Adesola Oguntade and his wife, Mrs Modupe Oguntade, were warmly received on Wednesday, by Queen Elizabeth 11 at the Buckingham Palace.
They went to visit for a private audience with the Queen, to present his letter of Credence to her.
The Queen may have suffered a slightly awkward moment when she discovered that she had perfectly matched her outfit to that of her Nigerian guests, but she quickly recovered with laughter.
The 91-year-old royal looked her elegant best in a purple dress with a cream and green floral motif to greet her guests. Only to discover that the Oguntades had also worn a similar shade of purple.
Mrs Modupe Oguntade’s Buba and Gele, a traditional Nigerian shirt and head scarf, were identical in shade with both her husband and the Queen, and featured a geometric pattern in the same cream colour. While her husband, the newly appointed High Commissioner wore a purple Agbada with a cream stripe decorating it.
Also, visiting was the Ambassador of the Lebanese Republic and his wife.
