8 lovely throwback photos of Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Nigeria in 1956


Despite the importance attached to the person of Queen Elizabeth II, not many recognize her or know much about the activities she carried out while she was still the monarchical head of Nigeria.

Not only did the queen carry out ceremonial duties during her reign as head of state of the colonial Nigeria, she also was Queen of Nigeria from 1960-1963 when the country became a republic.

During her reign as head of state and Queen of Nigeria, she visited Nigeria twice. The first time was between January 28, to February 16, 1956. And the second time was when she needed to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held between December 3, to 6, 2003.
