Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, says Nigeria is ‘my country’ on visit with Prince Harry

Published

on

The duchess says her heritage has come as no surprise to people she and Prince Harry have met on their visit to Nigeria – where women are defined as “brave, resilient, courageous, beautiful”.

Earlier, the duke and duchess had visited a volleyball court, where Harry joined Nigerian athletes for an exhibition game of sitting volleyball.

On the first day of their trip, Harry and Meghan also told schoolchildren there’s “no shame” in talking about mental health.

The couple were invited to Nigeria by the chief of the defence staff, and are also there to promote the duke’s Invictus Games, which stages sporting events for wounded, sick or injured veterans and serving military personnel.
One person shouted out “Ifeoma” – a name from the Igbo tribe meaning “a treasured thing” – while another suggested “Omowale”, which comes from the Yoruba tribe and means “the child has come home”.
