The Queen Suffers An Accidental Fashion Faux Pas At Buckingham Palace - CATEGORY Breaking news: TITLE

Elizabeth II et al. wearing a purple hat© Provided by National magazine company ltd (Hearst UK) It's happened to Hollywood A-listers, and even a member of royalty can suffer from an accidental fashion faux-pas.

The Queen inadvertently colour co-ordinated her outfit with that of her guests - the Nigerian High Commissioner George Oguntade, and his wife Modupe Adewemimo.

Signing Christmas cards (really) early: Like a lot of families, the Windsors like to include a family photo with their season’s greetings—and a bonafide signature from Queen Elizabeth herself. Politicians and heads of state will get cards signed 'Elizabeth R.' (for 'regina,' the Latin word for 'queen'), while friends will see 'Elizabeth,' and her cousins will receive her nickname 'Lilibet.' Sadly, card recipients won't get to see the other <a href=>cute nicknames the royal family uses. With a whopping 800 cards to mail out, though, the Queen won’t wait until the last minute to work on them. She spends part of her summer holiday in Balmoral signing cards so she doesn’t need to worry about them in the crazy days leading up to Christmas, according to PopSugar." data-src='{"default":{"load":"default","w":"73","h":"49","src":"//"},"size3column":{"load":"default","w":"62","h":"42","src":"//"},"size2column":{"load":"default","w":"62","h":"42","src":"//"}}' src="http:////"> 10 Royal Family Holiday Traditions You Might Want to Steal Yourself Gallery courtesy of Reader's Digest

Her majesty was welcoming the pair at Buckingham Palace for a private reception when the trio created a memorable fashion moment with their matching vibrant attire.

Modupe was wearing a striped ipele which matched Oguntade's agbada, while the monarch wore a long-sleeved floral dress with black court shoes.

The official Royal Family Instagram went on to share the image on their page which acquired 42,000 likes in just under 42 hours.

Royal fans and followers thoroughly enjoyed their colour co-ordination, with many remarking on their matching outfits under the picture.

The caption read: "Today at Buckingham Palace, The Queen received and held an audience with the High Commissioner from the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Mr George Adesola Oguntade."

The colour purple has been associated with royalty, power and wealth for centuries, and Queen Elizabeth I was said to have prohibited anyone except close members of the royal family from wearing it.

It was associated to the elite because purple fabric used to be so outrageously expensive that only rulers could afford it.

Meanwhile, the Queen appeared to be wearing Pantone's colour of 2018 as she attended the Commissioning Ceremony of HMS Queen Elizabeth at HM Naval Base in Portsmouth today (December 7).

The monarch recently held her annual winter party, which the Duchess of Cambridge attended wearing one Princess Diana's favourite tiaras.
