‘The Queen accidentally coordinated perfectly with George Adesola Oguntade, the High Commissioner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and his wife Mrs Oguntade on Wednesday
The 91-year-old royal looked her elegant best in a purple dress with a cream and green floral motif to greet her guests. However, little did she know her Nigerian visitors had an almost identical colour combination planned for their outfits.
The couple, George Adesola Oguntade, the High Commissioner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and his wife Mrs Oguntade visited the palace to present the Letter of Credence to the Queen on Wednesday. They arrived in spectacular traditional dress.
The couple opted to wear a matching fabric with the High Commissioner wearing a purple Agbada with a cream stripe decorating it and his wife a Buba and Gele. His wife’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.
The trio appeared to see the funny side, laughing as they were introduced at the palace today.
