Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to visit Nigeria following invitation from Chief of Defence Staff

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are reportedly planning to visit Nigeria.

The couple who no longer carry out official duties for the British Monarchy, will be visiting to take part in the country’s “cultural activities”, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The trip will come days after the duke visits the UK for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

The non-working royals will reportedly tour Nigeria in an unofficial capacity after accepting an invitation from the country’s Chief of Defence Staff, Christopher Gwabin Musa, while in Germany last September.

They will meet service members and their families and participate in ‘traditional cultural activities’.

Harry and Meghan’s acceptance of the invitation, their first visit to Nigeria as a couple is said to have left the country’s defence headquarters feeling ‘honoured’ and ‘delighted’, according to local newspaper reports.

Meghan revealed in 2022 she found out she is 43 per cent Nigerian after doing a genealogy test ‘a couple of years ago’.

Speaking on her podcast, Archetypes, to Nigerian-American comedian, Ziwe Fumudoh she said: ‘I’m going to start to dig deeper into all this because anybody that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are like ‘What!”
