Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on a de facto royal tour of Nigeria after the Duke's brief visit to the UK

Kinsey Schofield has highlighted an "odd" move made by Prince Harry during his visit to Nigeria with Meghan Markle, as the royal couple have embarked on a de facto tour of the African nation.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reunited at Heathrow Airport in London before flying to Abuja, where they visited a school to discuss mental health.

Speaking to GB News, royal commentator Schofield highlighted how the Prince "inspected Nigerian troops" during the trip, claiming it is an "odd" engagement for someone who is "not a working royal".

In discussion with host Mark Dolan, Schofield said the inspection would be something Harry "would have done ten years ago".

Schofield also claimed that Meghan and Harry are "still cashing in on the Royal Family name and titles".

She explained: "I think in general, yes, the objective of this trip is to appear like they are still on the level of the real working royals.

"They've become a joke in the States specifically, but also in the UK, and they need to improve their image for the Sussex brand as a whole."

Criticising Harry's involvement with the troops, Schofield told GB News: "Despite being stripped of his military titles by the late Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry in Nigeria was seen inspecting the troops. This is odd.

"He's not a working member of the Royal Family. That's something he would have done ten years ago."


Discussing the Nigeria trip as a whole, Schofield said King Charles is "never going to endorse a hostile rival royal operation", and "that is exactly what we see with Harry and Meghan".

She noted: "And the objective, again, is to monetise off of those connections."

Prince Harry did not see his father King Charles during his UK visit, ahead of the Nigeria tour. Reports claim that Buckingham Palace "did not receive a request" from the Duke to see him.

Defending King Charles, Schofield claimed the monarch should only engage in peace talks once Harry "does some maturing".

Schofield fumed: "He is completely self-serving, a perpetual victim, which we saw in that statement while he was in the UK.

"He has no respect for his elders, no respect for the institution, and a questionable relationship with the truth."

She continued: "He has remained defiant and detrimental throughout the illness and death of Prince Philip, the death of Queen Elizabeth, and the devastating cancer revelations from both King Charles and Catherine, the Princess of Wales.

"Harry's untrustworthy and his delusions of grandeur are reckless, and he remains a liability to the future of the monarchy."
