Prince Harry, Meghan To Visit Nigeria In May For Talks On Invictus Games


Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are expected to visit Nigeria in May for talks on the Invictus Games, which he established to facilitate the rehabilitation of wounded and sick servicemembers and veterans.

The Defence Headquarters in a statement on Sunday expressed its “honour and delight for the acceptance of the Duke of Duchess, His Royal Highness Prince Harry and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan to visit Nigeria in May 2024”.

The statement signed by the Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General Tukur Gusau said during their stay in Nigeria, they will be meeting with Service members and will be hosted to arrays of cultural activities.

It said, “It could be recalled that Prince Harry, the Duke of Duchess founded the Invictus Games, an international multi-sporting event which offers a recovery pathway for international wounded, injured and sick service men and women.

“It also gives soldiers awareness and recognition in society to support their path in rehabilitation. The Invictus Games has about 500 participants at the last outing and 21 nations in attendance, including Nigeria which made headway with Gold and Bronze at its first outing last year.

“The visit is to consolidate Nigeria’s stronghold at the game and the possibility of hosting the event in later years.”

“The Honourable Minister of Defence, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar Badaru who was in Germany at last year’s event, has accepted to host the games when granted to Nigeria,” it added.
