Checkout The Throwback Picture of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Azikiwe And Obi Of Onitsha In 1956

It is no argument that the most trending news in Britain and the whole world right now is the passing away of Prince Philip, the husband to the most powerful female monarch in the world, Queen Elizabeth II.

For a reason, he had led a long and fulfilled life and his death couldn’t have been more painful than that of Princess Diana who died in a car accident at a considerable age.

Prince Philip has dedicated his life to the cause of her wife, who is the traditional leader of the United Kingdom. Often times since their marriage, he followed her on her visitations around the world, proving himself to be a supportive and caring husband.

In one of their tours, the head of the British Royal family has visited Nigeria, precisely in 1956, just four year before Nigeria got her independent from Britain. The queen and her husband, with Nnamdi Azikiwe who would later be the first and only president in Nigeria under the parliamentary system, and the Obi of Onitsha, His Majesty Obi Okosi in Onitsha, were all captured in a photographic shoot.

It was a memorable and adoring picture that will cost a lot of money now as it showcases one of the few times the Queen and her husband has been caught on camera together in Africa especially Nigeria.

While we mourn the Prince Philip’s passing, we should take consolations in understanding that this lovely man has once’s graced our beautiful country. May God grants the Royal house the fortitude to bear the loss. Long live the Queen. Kindly share, like and follow this page for more updates
