The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Nigeria for a three-day visit.

This is their first trip to the country as a couple, and it comes after Prince Harry concluded a brief visit to London, where he told the BBC it had been “great” to be back in the UK.

Prince Harry and Meghan were invited by Nigeria’s chief of defence staff, General Christopher Musa, and will meet injured service personnel.

Their visit is part of a series of events linked to the Invictus Games, the sporting event for injured service men and women founded by Prince Harry which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year.

The couple landed in Abuja on Friday morning, and began their visit with a tour of Lightway Academy, a primary and secondary school in the capital city.

They were greeted by traditional dancers and met some of the primary schoolchildren.

One group of year five pupils told the BBC they were really excited to have the duke and duchess visit, saying they hope it will raise the profile of their school.

The couple then went on to launch a two-day mental health summit, after which the prince will head to a military rehabilitation centre in Kaduna.

The Duke and Duchess will also visit Lagos.
