Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are preparing for a trip to Nigeria next month, following what appears to be a ‘snub’ of the UK by the Duchess of Sussex.

She is unlikely to accompany Harry on his visit in May when he will mark the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games.

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has revealed that the Sussexes will be heading to Nigeria in May.

During their visit, they will meet with Service members and participate in a range of cultural activities.

This visit comes as Nigeria, along with Colombia and Israel, makes its debut at the Invictus Games, competing against the 21 nations that took part in the athletic games in 2023.

Meghan’s Nigerian ancestry, which she disclosed in her podcast series, Archetypes, could be a driving factor behind this trip.

Despite not accompanying Harry on his UK visit to mark ten years of the Invictus Games, Meghan will join him on the African journey just two days later.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams suggests that the couple’s trip to Nigeria, a country hoping to host a future Invictus Games and linked to Meghan’s ancestry, is logical.

However, he emphasises that this does not indicate a desire on the couple’s part to return to Royal duties involving tours and Royal trips, stating that Harry ‘has no desire to do so’, reports the Mirror.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, he declared: “It’s [the visit to Nigeria] a very good face saver with Meghan not coming to Britain and shows a bit of PR nous.”

During the 2023 Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, Germany, Harry and Meghan formed a close bond with the Nigerian team.

They, in turn, presented them with a plaque from the Chief of Defense and gave Meghan an affectionate new nickname – the Amira Ngozi Lolo.

In their native land, the term ‘Amira’ denotes a legendary warrior princess, while ‘Ngozi’ translates as “blessed” and ‘Lolo’ signifies a “royal wife.”

In a joking homage to his wife’s newly discovered ancestry during his opening speech at last year’s games, Harry teased: “Now, I’m not saying we play favourites in our home, but since my wife discovered she’s of Nigerian descent, it’s likely to get a little bit more competitive this year.”

Ever since stepping back from Royal duties in 2020, Harry and Meghan have made rare appearances in the UK and maintain a tense relationship with the Royal family following controversial revelations exposed in their Netflix series.

Meghan, particularly, has been reluctant to venture back to Britain and was last spotted in the country in 2022 for the late Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, missing King Charles’ coronation last year.
