Megan Markle: How I Felt After Discovering I Was Partly A Nigerian

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has opened up on how she felt after discovering through a genealogy test that she was partly Nigerian.

She explained that it was humbling to discover that she was of Nigerian roots. According to the Associated Press, Meghan made the confession while speaking at a programme in Abuja organized by women in leadership and co-hosted by Nigerian economist and Head of the World Trade Organization Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

The Duchess of Sussex had on her podcast in October 2022 that she discovered through a DNA-based test that she was “43% Nigerian.”

Addressing the women at the Abuja event, she re-echoed her Nigerian roots, calling the African giant “my country”, saying, “It’s been eye-opening to be able to know more about my heritage.”

“Never in a million years would I understand it as much as I do now. And what has been echoed so much in the past day is, ‘Oh, we are not so surprised when we found out you are Nigerian.

“It is a compliment to you because what they define as a Nigerian woman is brave, resilient, courageous, beautiful,” Meghan told the audience.
