The Sussexes touched down in the Nigerian city this morning after spending two days in Abuja where the couple were mobbed at a sitting volleyball match.

Meghan appeared to be wearing an outfit made of aso oke – a hand-woven cloth from south-west Nigeria – which she had been gifted at a lavish lunch yesterday.

Harry sported sunglasses, a beige jacket, and a white shirt, as they shook the hands of military dignitaries who stood along the runway.

The couple, visiting Nigeria together for the first time, applauded and gasped as they were greeted with a dance performance. They will today reportedly visit a school which is being supported by their Archewell foundation.

They will then attend a cultural reception and later a polo fundrasier in aid of Nigeria Unconquered.

The visit is primarily to promote the Invictus Games and comes after Harry met the Nigerian team and General Musa at last year’s competition in Dusseldorf, Germany.

They arrived in Abuja on Friday for the 72-hour whistlestop tour of the country after flying in together following a secret reunion in London.

During their two-day stay in the capital city, Meghan told how she had fulfilled her dream of becoming a parent as she opened up about her ‘very chatty, sweet children’ Archie, five and Lilibet, two.

The Duchess of Sussex was speaking at a Women in Leadership event she was co-hosting with Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director General of the World Trade Organization.

Meghan told the audience how much she loves being a mother but admitted that balancing her family and her career posed its own set of challenges.

During the talk, Meghan was asked how she juggled being a mother with her career and she replied: ‘I love being a mum.’

Despite being told more than ten years ago by her friend and mentor that she would never be able to balance the demands of motherhood and her work, the 42-year-old duchess said she enjoys being a mother and her priorities are constantly changing.

During the panel discussion, Meghan said that ‘balance’ in her life has changed over the years and looks different to ten years ago before she was married and had Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

She said: ‘What I think that to mean now is that that balance will always change for you. That balance, what seems balanced ten years ago is going to shift.’ according to Hello.

Yesterday, the Sussexes were mobbed by fans as the Duke of Sussex took part in a sitting volleyball match during their Nigeria tour.
