Meghan and Harry concluded a tour of Nigeria this week

Oh dear Harry and Meghan. If you thought that the newspapers in this country went all gushy over the pair when they went to Nigeria, you'd be right.

But if you ask many Nigerians, it was a whole different conversation on Meghan's claims that she's 43 per cent Nigerian.

I saw this trip. For what? It was a fake royal-looking tour under the guise of the Invictus Games.

Meghan couldn't even be bothered to step outside Heathrow Airport, choosing to meet Harry in the Windsor Lounge at the airport for an onboard flight to Nigeria.

They can't seriously expect us to believe that they're concerned about their safety.

I mean, Nigeria rates as one of the most dangerous places in the world, but my favourite bit on this tour was when the Duke and Duchess were forced to stand for the UK national anthem, God Save the King.


The Nigerians aren't falling for their fake crud either. The pair have successfully isolated pretty much every country they visited and back in the US.

They were not, it would appear, invited to the Met Gala. I mean, they may have turned it down, but it's a big old event.

I can't see Megan not wanting to go to that.

They've become a laughingstock there as well.

You see, repeatedly slagging off your own family on an international stage when it is because of them that you have the privilege, does not bode well.

And whilst your DNA, Meghan might be in the main Nigerian, being a Nigerian is about a culture just like being British.

I may have Ghanaian DNA for which I am thankful, but my culture is British. I'm British.

The people of Nigeria are not stupid. The Sussexes would be wise not to underestimate them.
