Before his coronation, King Charles III of England and Otumfuo Osei Tutu II of Ghana had a memorable encounter that was immortalized in a photograph.
Otumfuo, who was dressed in colorful regalia, was photographed shaking hands with King Charles, who was wearing a stunning blue suit and tie.
King Charles III welcomed Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to Buckingham Palace together with his stunning bride Lady Julia.
Lady Julia complemented her husband’s clothing with a gorgeously crafted “Kaba” and “Slit” made of Kente fabric.
The three were also captured in another photo with King Charles ‘sandwiched’ by the two Ghanaian royals.
The post was shared by Manhyia Palace’ Twitter handle.
