Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Embark on a Historic Visit to Nigeria

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have arrived in Nigeria for a three-day tour, marking their first official international trip since stepping back from their royal duties. The couple’s visit, which commenced on May 10, 2024, is primarily focused on the Invictus Games, an international sporting event for wounded and injured veterans.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s itinerary includes a series of meetings and events that underscore their long-standing commitment to veteran affairs and their affection for the African continent. This visit is particularly significant as it is their first public appearance in Nigeria, a country with a rich cultural heritage and a growing community of Invictus Games participants.

Upon their arrival, the royal couple was greeted with a warm welcome ceremony in the capital city of Abuja. Their agenda for the day was packed with meaningful engagements, including a visit to a local school, a meeting with Nigeria’s Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa, and a trip to a military hospital to meet with sick and wounded servicemen.

The second day of their visit promises to be equally eventful, with plans to meet the staff of Nigeria: Unconquered, an organization that oversees the country’s participation in the Invictus Games. Additionally, they will attend a reception honoring military families, further highlighting their support for the veteran community.

Meghan Markle, known for her advocacy on women’s issues, will co-host an event focused on Women in Leadership alongside Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Director-General of the World Trade Organization. The couple will also participate in a basketball clinic with Giants of Africa and attend a cultural reception and a polo fundraiser for Nigeria: Unconquered.
