The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed their upcoming joint trip to Nigeria in May 2024, marking a significant moment for Meghan as she explores her Nigerian heritage. The country’s defense headquarters expressed their “honour and delight” at the royal couple’s acceptance of the invitation. The visit is closely linked to the Invictus Games, with plans for the Sussexes to meet military servicemen and women and engage in a range of cultural activities.

President Bola Tinubu’s administration has been investing in technology to ensure transparency, accountability, and accelerated performance in the Nigerian government. Recognizing the power of technology in combating corruption and financial impropriety, President Tinubu emphasized its role as an enemy of fraud. The visit to Nigeria will provide an opportunity for the Duke and Duchess to witness firsthand the advancements in technology and its impact on governance.

Meghan’s recent discovery of her Nigerian heritage, revealed during a podcast episode, adds a personal connection to the visit. Prince Harry previously mentioned the link at the opening ceremony of the 2023 Invictus Games, expressing the couple’s competitive spirit. This trip to Nigeria will be one of the few overseas tours the Duke and Duchess have undertaken since stepping back from their royal duties.

The presence of Nigerian photographer Misan Harriman, a close friend of the couple, has sparked speculation that he may join them to capture the trip. Harriman’s talent and connection to the Sussexes make him a valuable asset in documenting their experiences.
