72 hours in Africa: Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visit Nigeria: This is the plan on site

Since moving to California four years ago, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have not gone on a PR tour like the current one in Nigeria. The couple was only seen together at the Invictus Games themselves and at royal events, such as the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

In Nigeria, the two are now embarking on a tour for good causes and to talk about the Invictus Games. Duchess Meghan announced in her podcast “Archetypes” in 2022 that she herself had 43 percent Nigerian roots. She probably found this out through a DNA test. After this realization, she paid a very special visit to the Nigerian team at the Invictus Games in Düsseldorf in 2023 and was given the name Amira Ngozi Lolo by the players, which has a special royal meaning. Amira means warrior princess and comes from a legend, Ngozi means blessed and Lolo means royal wife.

While Prince Harry has been in London for the past few days, Meghan arrived there on Thursday. They both met in the VIP Windsor Suite at London Heathrow Airport and flew on to Nigeria together. Today, in the early hours of the morning, around five o'clock, they arrived at the airport in Abuja.

Although they were flying scheduled flights to Nigeria with British Airways, according to the Daily Mail news magazine, they were sitting in first class on the Boeing 777 and were separated from other passengers by a curtain. There was also an extra sausage for Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry when they left the plane. They left the plane first with security personnel while the passengers had to wait.

People magazine published the couple's timeline for the next three days until they are scheduled to travel home on Sunday. After their arrival, they went to the hotel so that the couple could find a moment of peace and relaxation. According to the Daily Mail, they will stay at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja, where the presidential suite costs £600 a night. Set in picturesque landscaped gardens in the heart of Nigeria's capital, the hotel features a restaurant, pool and spa.
