Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle visited Nigeria yesterday as part of his promotion of the Invictus Games, the sporting event he founded for wounded military veterans.

The couple arrived yesterday in the Nigerian capital Abuja where they visited a school to open an event on mental health for students there.

Greeted by a drum and dance group from the Igbo ethnic group, Prince Harry and Megan toured the Lightway Academy where they were welcomed by pupils.

“If you take anything away from today, just know that mental health affects every single person,” he told students, wearing a traditional Nigerian bead necklace around his neck.

“The more you talk about it the more you can kick stigma away.”
