Her Majesty welcomed the new Nigerian High Commissioner to her home during a private audience at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.
George Adesola Oguntade, the High Commissioner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and his wife Mrs Oguntade arrived at the palace 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.
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, pictured laughing as they were introduced at the palace today.
Oguntade visited the palace to present his Letter of Credence to the Queen on Wednesday.
