In Abuja, the couple spent time with Nigeria Unconquered, which complies for the country’s Invictus Games team.

After arriving at the Armed Forces’ Officers Mess and being given scarves in the green and white colours of Nigeria, Harry and Meghan watched a game of sitting volleyball, before Harry was invited to play with the team.

The Duke participated in a few rounds of the game, which were played by ‘Team Harry’ and ‘Team CDS’ – referring to the military’s chief of defence staff who is behind the couple’s visit to Nigeria.

The Duke then joined in the team’s war cry before speaking with families and friends of the athletes.

Last year, Nigeria became the first African country to take part in the Invictus Games, a sporting competition for wounded military personnel and veterans, co-founded by Prince Harry in 2014.

On the first day of the mini-tour on Friday, Harry spoke about the joy the Nigeria team brought to the games in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The charity Nigeria Unconquered, which will put together Nigeria’s team for next year’s Invictus Games in Canada, helps wounded, sick and injured service personnel to “find new purpose” through sport.

Meghan was presented with a bunch of roses by six-year-old Royalty Ojeh, daughter of the founder of Nigeria Unconquered, Bobby Ojeh. Touched by the gesture, the duchess offered Royalty one of the roses to keep.
