While visiting Nigeria on Saturday, Prince Harry, Meghan, and the veterans of the Nigerian Army played volleyball and visited with Dr. Uzochukwu Stanley, a businessman from Nigeria.

On Saturday, Prince Harry played seated volleyball with army veterans, the majority of whom had been wounded fighting the country’s Islamist insurgency. The pair is currently on a three-day tour to Nigeria to promote Prince Harry’s Invictus Games.

An exhibition match was held in an Abuja officer’s mess facility between Harry’s yellow side and one commanded by Gen. Christopher Musa, the senior commander of Nigeria’s defense staff.

The Sussexes began their three-day visit to the West African nation of Nigeria at the invitation of its military. While there, they visited the Lightway Academy, a school that receives funding from the Archewell foundation to educate and empower young girls impacted by Nigerian conflicts. Afterwards, they met with military officers from the nation.

The pair were greeted by a dance group and an enthusiastic audience of Abuja schoolchildren and faculty as they began a first mental health summit hosted by the local nonprofit GEANCO, a partner of their foundation.

“Those are some seriously impressive dance moves!” “Meghan,” she stated. “It was a thrill for my husband to leap!” “Meghan,” she stated.

They interacted with the students in the classrooms thereafter, who displayed the robot vehicles they had constructed.

Archie and Lilibet, their own children, were the subjects of their talk to the pupils on mental health.

There is a stigma associated with mental health in certain parts of the world. “Most people would rather not discuss it,” Harry remarked. “So will you assure us that from this day forward, we will not have to worry about our mental health?”

The candor of her spouse was lauded by Meghan.

To the applause of the pupils, she asked, “You see why I’m married to him?” She then urged the students to never feel shame for the things that had happened to them. It is a tremendous privilege to be among you all on our maiden visit to Nigeria. We have faith in you. “We have faith in your future,” she reassured.

Meeting the pair made student Nnenna Okorie’s joy obvious. “She is the prettiest human being ever,” said Okorie, a school senior. She and Harry are two people that I greatly adore. “I adore his unwavering support,” she exclaimed.

Gen. Christopher Musa, Nigeria’s chief of military staff, met privately with the couple after they were welcomed by troops and their spouses at the country’s defense headquarters.
