Meet Tokunbo Awolowo, the schoolgirl who presented flowers to Queen Elizabeth II in 1956

Queen Elizabeth II was presented flowers on different occasions during her first visit to Nigeria in 1956. One of the girls who presented flowers to the Queen was Tokunbo Awolowo (now Tokunbo Awolowo-Dosunmu), the daughter of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who was then a schoolgirl. Below are her then and now photos.
