Invictus Organizer Reveals That Meghan Markle ‘can’t wait to take a trip to Nigeria for her mum and the kids’, after her heritage was discovered through genealogy.

Meghan Markle’s Growing Connection to Nigeria

Discovering Her Nigerian Heritage

Meghan Markle’s ties to Nigeria have deepened, and she is eager to visit the country to connect with her roots and spend time with family, according to an Invictus Games organizer. The Duchess of Sussex’s affinity for Nigeria became evident during the Games, which focus on supporting wounded and disabled military veterans. Prince Harry announced at the opening ceremony that Meghan, after discovering through a genealogy test that she is 43% Nigerian, would be offering her personal support to the African team.

A Heartwarming Bond with the Nigerian Team

During the event, Meghan displayed a heartwarming connection with the Nigerian team. She was seen hugging a competitor and affectionately referring to her as ‘my Nigerian sister.’ Meghan also met various team members and the defense chief, who bestowed upon her the nickname “Amira Ngozi Lolo.” This name carries significance, as Amira means ‘warrior princess,’ Ngozi signifies ‘blessed,’ and Lolo translates to ‘royal wife.’ The Duchess was serenaded by the Nigerian team in a group huddle, and they chanted ‘Gbosas,’ roughly translating to ‘kudos.’

Planning a Trip to Nigeria

Derek Cobbinah, who played a pivotal role in coordinating Nigeria’s participation in the competition, disclosed that Meghan was deeply touched by the nickname and expressed her desire to organize a family trip to Nigeria, specifically mentioning her mother and children. He conveyed that she is always welcome to visit Nigeria and other African countries, underscoring the bond she has developed with the nation.

Unearthing Her Nigerian Heritage

Meghan’s discovery of her Nigerian heritage unfolded during an episode of her Archetypes podcast after she underwent a genealogy test a couple of years ago. She expressed her intention to delve deeper into her ancestral roots during a discussion with comedians Issa Rae and Ziwe Fumudoh.

A Warm Reception at the Games

Meghan received a warm welcome at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf, marking her first appearance at a sports event with Prince Harry. The crowd greeted her with cheers and applause, and she appeared genuinely touched by the enthusiastic reception. Dressed casually, she interacted with supporters, waved to the crowd, and even joined a children’s relay race with Harry. The couple awarded medals to participants while Queen’s “We Are The Champions” played in the arena, showcasing their support for the Invictus Games
