#QueensYoungLeaders: Photos from My Visit to the Buckingham Palace

So I finally met the Queen of England! I guess I can add this to my list of achievements… lol! On a more serious note, I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Queens Young Leaders Award in Buckingham Palace where 60 young people across Commonwealth Nations were being honoured.

It was such an honor! She looked so fresh… It was like seeing history in motion 🙂

Hubby & I were elated.

The awards ceremony, initiated in 2014 by Prince William and Prince Harry was hosted by Queen Elizabeth. Also in attendance were ace footballer David Beckham, Sir John Major, Fearne Cotton and more. You bet I got a picture with David!

I felt so proud of all the 60 young and inspiring leaders aged 18-29 who were honoured yesterday. But I felt even more proud of the 4 Nigerians Isaiah Owolabi, Kelvin Ogholi, Nkechi Azinge and Oladipupo Ajiroba who received their awards as well. These are exceptional young people doing amazing work in their communities and with support from such a platform, I’m sure they will go on to do even more inspiring works.

During my stay in the UK, I was lodged at Le Meridien Picadilly. Their warmth and hospitality was truly exceptional.

A big thanks to the kind staff at the hotel who made my stay there very memorable.
