Prince Harry revealed at the opening ceremony that his wife would be lending athletes her personal support after finding through a genealogy test that she is 43% Nigerian.

Meghan was also seen hugging a competitor and describing her as ‘my Nigerian sister’, before being introduced to further members of the team and the defence chief, who gave her the nickname Ngozi Lolo she could use if she ever visits the country.

Derek Cobbinah, who helped co-ordinate Nigeria’s debut in this year’s competition, told Hello! that the Duchess was ‘deeply touched’ by the nickname and that she is hoping to organise a family trip to the country.

‘She said she couldn’t wait to visit Nigeria for her mum and the kids,’ he revealed.

‘She’s always welcome to visit Nigeria and other African countries.’
