Prince Harry, 39, and Meghan, 42, were invited to by Nigeria’s Chief of Defense Staff, the country’s highest-ranking military official. Upon their arrival on Friday morning, the couple will visit a school. They will then meet with the Chief of Defense Staff. In the afternoon, Harry will meet injured servicemembers at a military hospital.

On Saturday, the couple will attend a training session for the organization, Nigeria: Unconquered and a reception hosted by the Chief of Defence Staff in honor of military families.

Prince Harry spent a few days in London this week to mark the tenth anniversary of his Invictus Games, the competition for wounded, injured and sick veterans and serving armed forces members, and the commemoration was highlighted by a Service of Thanksgiving Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Notably, while his celebration was taking place at the Cathedral, his father King Charles was only two miles away at Buckingham Palace, where he hosted a garden party. The father and son did not meet in the two days that Harry was in the city, due to what was said to be the King’s “full schedule. The prince was “understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon,” a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex said.

The visit to Nigeria will continue with the Invictus Games theme, highlighting the adaptive sports competition for wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans which Nigeria participated for the first time at the latest cycle in Germany in September 2023.
