Meghan Markle Skips UK Trip with Harry, Opts for Nigeria Visit Instead

by Ohepo Ohepo

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has recently shifted her travel plans, opting out of a visit to the UK and instead planning a significant trip to Nigeria with Prince Harry. Originally speculated to attend the Invictus Games in London next month, Meghan has decided to join Prince Harry in Nigeria for a series of engagements, including discussions about the Invictus Games, a cause close to Harry’s heart.

The trip aims to connect Meghan with her roots following revelations of her Nigerian ancestry. On her podcast, *Archetypes*, Meghan disclosed that a genealogy test showed she is 43% Nigerian, a heritage she was previously unaware of. This discovery has sparked her interest in exploring more about Nigerian culture and history. The visit to Nigeria will provide an opportunity for her to engage with the local culture and community on a personal level.

Harry and Meghan’s visit is not only about personal exploration but also aligns with their ongoing commitment to support veteran affairs through the Invictus Games. Their itinerary includes meeting service members and their families, and participating in cultural activities, enriching their understanding of the local traditions and issues.

This journey also coincides with Prince Harry’s trip to London for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Following his commitments in the UK, he will return to the US briefly before heading to Nigeria. This sequence of visits underscores the Sussexes’ efforts to honor their commitments across continents while dealing with the complexities of their public and personal lives.

The Nigerian trip not only allows Meghan to connect with a part of her heritage but also serves as a meaningful way for Harry to continue his mother’s legacy. Princess Diana, known for her humanitarian efforts, had visited Nigeria in 1990, making this trip particularly poignant for Prince Harry as he walks in his mother’s footsteps while forging his path alongside Meghan.

Royal followers and commentators view this visit as a pivotal moment for the Sussexes as they navigate their roles within the royal family and their philanthropic activities worldwide. The anticipation around this visit is high, with many hoping it will offer the couple a deeper connection to Meghan’s ancestry and a strengthened platform for their ongoing advocacy efforts.
