Prince Harry, Meghan Markle arrive in Nigeria for tour

Meghan Markle quit social media

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have arrived in Nigeria on Friday morning, ahead of their 72-hour tour.

The Duchess of Sussex flew into Heathrow yesterday to meet up with her husband at the airport’s VIP Windsor Suite.

They both boarded the British Airways overnight flight to Abuja, which was slightly delayed after the scheduled pilot went sick and a replacement had to be scrambled.

The couple, visiting Nigeria together for the first time, were seated in the first class section of the Boeing 777 and were kept apart from other passengers by a curtain.

It comes after Harry said it was ‘great’ to be back in the UK this week to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. The Duke had been in London since Tuesday, attending events relating to the competition including a thanksgiving service.

Travellers were held back while the couple were escorted off and they exchanged smiles with cabin crew as they left.

Nigerian officials met them at Abuja Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and they were taken out of a side door onto the jetty and into a waiting blacked out minibus.
