Meghan Markle has expressed her eagerness to return “home” to Nigeria in the future.

Meghan Markle penned a letter following her Nigeria trip

The former actress, who discovered through a DNA test in 2022 that she is 43 percent Nigerian, recently visited the country with her husband, Prince Harry. She was thrilled to learn about her “heritage”, which she can now share with her children, five year old Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, who turns three on Tuesday.

In a letter obtained by the Western Post, Meghan wrote to the Oluwu of Iso, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi: “Your Imperial Majesty, Thank you for your warm welcome to Nigeria… Our visit to Nigeria was important for many reasons, but not least because it gave us an opportunity to explore and understand my heritage, which extends to our children. We look forward to coming back home one day.”

During her meeting with the Oluwu – a traditional ruler in Nigerian society – he bestowed upon Meghan the traditional Yoruba name of Adetokunbo. She confessed to being “deeply humbled” by his blessing.

In her letter, she added: “I am deeply humbled by your blessing of the traditional Yoruba name, Adetokunbo. I treasure the name and appreciate your trust in me to carry it with grace and dignity.”

The 42-year-old duchess has previously admitted that she will always hold dear her memories from her trip to Nigeria. She shared with People magazine: “It was such warm hospitality and it was a really meaningful trip. It was incredibly memorable and special. That alone is the best souvenir to take with us – all the memories we’ve made.”

A key aspect of their journey was to promote the Invictus Games – a tournament established by Harry for wounded and injured veterans – and the Duke of Sussex expressed that it was “hugely important” for him and his wife to “meet directly” with individuals as they strive to instigate “positive change” globally.

He stated: “Always nice to be on the move, in a sense, but also these trips are about us being able to go out and focus on the things that mean so much to us and support the causes that are close to our heart. And being able to be on the ground that, to us, is what it’s all about.”

“It is hugely important for us to meet directly with people, supporting our causes and listening, in order to bring about solutions, support and positive change. There’s only so much one can do from home and over Zoom, so we look forward to traveling more because the work matters.”/
