The Duchess of Sussex said at Lagos State Government House that she was ‘very grateful’ and ‘very humbled’ by the welcome the couple had received on their tour.

Meghan told the event yesterday: ‘Today is Mother’s Day (in America). So it feels appropriate that although of course we are missing our children, I’m missing my babies, it feels very appropriate to be in the motherland and amongst family.’

The Duchess, who was also honoured with a naming ceremony and received a handwoven Nigerian fabric, added: ‘Thank you so much for the kindness and for these beautiful names, I’m very grateful. I can’t wait to come back.’

Her husband Prince Harry also spoke to the gathering, describing those in the room as his ‘in laws’, adding: ‘I’ll skip the protocol because at this point we’re all family.’

He continued: ‘Thank you for welcoming my wife and myself to Nigeria. It’s our first visit. It certainly won’t be our last. Thank you for the naming ceremony. I don’t know how I got dragged into that as well, but to be able to witness it as well next to my wife, it means a huge amount to both of us but especially her, so thank you for that.’

Their visit comes after Meghan revealed on her Archetypes podcast in October 2022 that she found out through the DNA-based test that she was ’43 per cent Nigerian’.
