The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex Meghan have arrived in Lagos to continue a three-day visit to Nigeria.

The British Royal couple were guests of the Giant of Africa Foundation at the Dream Big Basketball clinic held at the Ilupeju Grammar School in Lagos.

The President of the Giant of Africa Foundation, Masai Ujiri, commended the royal couple for inspiring young kids in Africa through sports.

The uke and Duchess said they are delighted to be involved in programmes aimed at empowering young people in Africa.

Prince Harry and Meghan have now arrived at the Lagos House in Marina to meet with the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle landed in Nigeria on Friday as part of their promotion of the Invictus Games, the sporting event he founded for wounded military veterans.

The couple arrived Friday 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.

At an officer’s mess complex in Abuja, Harry’s team dressed in yellow played off in an exhibition against a team led by Nigeria’s chief of defence staff, the country’s top commander.

With chants of “Team Harry, Team Harry” when they scored, the prince’s team took an early lead with players seated on foam mats, some missing legs.

But they lost the match to the commander’s squad Team CDS.
