Naomi Campbell is glamorous in Ralph & Russo as she mingles with Prince Charles

We love it when two worlds collide. Here we have one of the world's top models, Naomi Campbell, with his Royal Highness Prince Charles, mingling together at a reception in Nigeria. The event was held at the British Deputy High Commissioner's Residence on day eight of Charles and Camilla's tour of West Africa, and was attended by key figures from Nigeria's fashion world. Naomi looked stunning in a black feathered strapless dress by the designer Ralph & Russo, paired with a beautiful pale pink jacket and black choker necklace. Naomi's gorgeous dress is from the Ralph & Russo SS18 Couture Collection.

We had a little look on the Ralph & Russo website, which reveals Naomi's dress is a black silk velvet column gown edged with ostrich feathers and features an embellished black crystal belt. Divine! The model's jacket is actually a blush pink 'gazar opera coat'. Who wishes they owned one of those? You know you've made it when you have an opera coat.

With just over a month to go until Christmas, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be getting excited for the big day just like their friends. And it will be an extra-special celebration this year for the Cambridge family as it will mark Prince Louis' first Christmas. Every year, the Royal Family spend the 25 December together in Sandringham, and unlike the majority of families in the UK who wait until the day itself to open their presents, they celebrate slightly differently. Marlene Koenig, royal historian and founder of Royal Musings, told HELLO!: "The British royals still follow the German tradition of opening presents on Christmas Eve. The members of the family who are present at Sandringham exchange gifts, usually not expensive. The gifts are put out on a trestle table after tea time."

The Mail reports that Naomi said of her meeting with Charles: "'He looks amazing. He doesn't look his age. I told him that his spirit was young. He is such an example to me. His commitment to the Commonwealth, that's amazing. I'm very grateful.'

Last November, George asked Santa for a police car. Prince William gave an adorable handwritten note from his son during an official visit to Finland. In the letter, George had also circled that he had been "nice" that year in the line which read: "Dear Father Christmas this year I have been naughty/nice." William laughed: "He hasn't written down many requests, so I think one request is probably ok." The royal also pointed to the word "nice" and said: "He's been a nice boy, a nice boy." Santa, who traditionally is from Finland, nodded his head in agreement and William smiled.

It was recently revealed that Naomi and her mum Valerie Morris-Campbell are to star in Riccardo Tisci's first Burberry Christmas campaign. The supermodel has had a fantastic few months, walking the H&M Moschino catwalk and attending the Royal Wedding.

The Prince of Wales said it was particularly special to be there after nearly 30 years, and that the only words to describe it were God don butter my bread, a term in Pidgin meaning God has blessed me. 

Prince Harry still refers to Princess Diana in a very specific way – and its incredibly sweet

The Pidgin language is the widely spoken lingua franca of much of west and central Africa, a way of communicating meant to overcome the barriers of Africas many different dialects that first began in the late 17th and 18th centuries.

And three years later, in 1986, the pair still appeared to be madly in love, sharing a passionate kiss after after he played for the England II team against Chile at the Cartier International Polo Spectacular.

The language is a cultural force, used in everything from Afrobeat music to movies emerging from Nigerias Nollywood, now the worlds second-largest film industry. 

Photos of the pair being escorted away from St Paul’s shortly after tying the knot appear to show an upbeat and optimistic young couple, joyfully looking forward to their new life together.

The prince also spoke about his commitment to Lagos through The Princes Trust initiative, which sees money invested in return for social value.
