Meghan Markle mobbed by Nigerian fans as Prince Harry ‘copies’ William | Royal | News

and have been mobbed by excited crowds during their tour of Nigeria, with the Duke of Sussex being part of a special volleyball match.

Harry’s Nigeria Unconquered team played the Chief of Defence staff’s own squad for an Invictus Games match today in Abuja, the capital, with the Prince himself even taking part.

Sadly for Harry his team, made up exclusively of wounded military personnel, lost 25-21 as he and Meghan took in the game from the sidelines. But he could be seen to be copying his older brother, the Prince of Wales.

That’s because just yesterday Prince William took was taking part in a volleyball match thousands of miles away as he joined in the fun while on an official visit to Cornwall.

But it was Meghan who has so far been the main attraction in the West African country, as she revealed previously she is 43 percent of Nigerian heritage.

The couple were both dressed to cope with the 35C heat and humidity, with Meghan wowing onlookers in a £2,275 Joanna Ortiz Tropicana Nights dress featuring a black and white palm leaves pattern.

Harry looked casual in a dark polo top and trousers with a green and white scarf draped around his neck, the colours of the Nigerian flag, as he cheered on his team at the Officers Mess.

The Duchess posed for several selfies with her fans, at one point becoming lost in the crowd as some were even reduced to tears by seeing her.

A source close to the couple told MailOnline: “They are so happy to be in Nigeria and having a great time. Everyone has been so welcoming towards them and they are really feeling the warmth of the people.

“As far as they are concerned it’s been a fantastic trip and they couldn’t be happier.”

On Sunday the pair will travel to Lagos, Nigeria’s biggest city, to watch a basketball match and attend a fundraising event at the city’s polo ground.

Then on Monday they will travel back to California to be reunited with their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, with Meghan sadly missing out on Mother’s Day in the US this year.
