The Duchess of Sussex landed at Heathrow yesterday after flying solo from Los Angeles before meeting 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.

On arrival in Nigeria just before 5am today, other travellers were held back while the couple were escorted off and they exchanged smiles with cabin crew as they left.

Prince Harry says it’s ‘great’ to be back in UK
The Duke of Sussex said it was ‘great’ to be back in the UK this week.

Speaking at an event he attended in London yesterday for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity for bereaved military children, Harry was asked by BBC royal correspondent Daniela Relph: ‘Nice to have you back. How is it being here?’

The Duke replied: ‘It’s great. Just as the lights turned off, perfect timing. It’s great, it’s amazing. What Scotty’s is doing with these kids is absolutely incredible, and very needed as well.

‘And the more opportunity we get to do these kind of events, the more that families and kids up and down the country know that Scotty’s exists, which is really the most important thing.’

Ms Relph asked him: ‘How many Maltesers did you eat off the floor?’

And Harry replied: ‘Er, you guys probably know better than I do, but at least three. I think by that point it started getting a little bit weird.’

As he walked away, Ms Relph said: ‘And nice to be back in the UK?’ And Harry said: ‘Yeah, it’s great. Nice to see you.’
