The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan, have arrived in Lagos to continue their three-day visit to Nigeria.

They are expected to meet with the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, at Lagos House in Marina.

Prince Harry and his wife landed in Nigeria on Friday as part of their promotion of the Invictus Games, the sporting event he founded for wounded military veterans.

In Lagos, the British Royal couple were guests of the Giant of Africa Foundation at the Dream Big Basketball clinic held at the Ilupeju Grammar School in Lagos.

The President of the Giant of Africa Foundation, Masai Ujiri, commended the royal couple for inspiring young kids in Africa through sports.

The couples said they are delighted to be involved in programmes aimed at empowering young people in Africa.

While visiting the officer’s mess complex in Abuja, on Saturday, Harry’s team dressed in yellow played off in an exhibition against a team led by Nigeria’s chief of defence staff, the country’s top commander.

The prince’s team took an early lead with players seated on foam mats, some missing legs.

But they lost the match to the commander’s squad Team CDS.

The couple later attended a reception for military families where they were greeted by traditional dancers who also performed acrobatics.
