Meghan Markle joined her husband

Indeed, before flying to the capital of Abuja, Prince Harry made a brief visit to his home country to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. Meghan did not come with him. She did however meet him in a UK airport, so they could both fly to Abuja together.

During their visit, the Sussexes met students and teachers, after attending dance performances on their arrival. They then went into the classrooms to chat with the children. Prince Harry took the opportunity to ask them about their knowledge of mental health, reminding them not to be ashamed of taking good care of themselves, but also of others.
