Queen Elizabeth in wardrobe clash with new Nigerian high commissioner

Queen Elizabeth welcomes Justice George Oguntade

Queen Elizabeth looked slightly awkward in a matching outfit with Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Justice George Oguntade, when she hosted the envoy at Buckingham Palace 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 that Justice Oguntade and his wife had an almost identical colour combination planned for their outfits.

The couple arrived at the palace in spectacular traditional matching fabric with the high commissioner wearing a purple agbada with a cream stripe decorating it.

Mrs Oguntade’s buba and gele 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 Oguntade presented his letter of credence to the Queen.
