The ceremony took place at the Noordeinde Palace in The Hague, where the Ambassador was accompanied by the 1st Counsellor at the Embassy of Cameroon, Mrs. Fonda Haga Halima and other Embassy diplomats and staff.

Prior to the presentation of her letters of credence H.E. Mrs. LIGUEMOH was collected from the Cameroonian Embassy by a state coach, drawn by two horses. This was part of a convey of other horse drawn state coaches transporting both officials of the Embassy and officials from the Dutch Royal Palace. At the arrival at Noordeinde Palace (one of the three official palaces of the Dutch royal family and the King’s official place of work), a guard of honour and a military band were drawn up in the forecourt of Noordeinde Palace.

The band played four drum rolls, followed by the National Anthem of the Republic of Cameroon. The ambassador was then invited to inspect the Guard of Honour.  

Inside the palace, the ambassador formally presented her letters of credence to His Majesty King Willem-Alexander. During the ceremony, H.E. Ambassador (Mrs.) Liguemoh conveyed H.E.
