Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been spending time in Nigeria on what has been dubbed a “mini royal tour”, but some parts of the trip have raised eyebrows.

The couple are said to have annoyed Prince William and King Charles with the trip, with royal expert Jennie Bond explaining how they are “of the belief that you are either in or out of the working royals”. Meghan also snubbed the Royal Family as she returned to the UK before flying to Nigeria, but chose not to reunite with The Firm.

The Sussexes are expected to return to America later today following a whirlwind 72 hours in Nigeria. Ahead of their return home, we’ve taken a look at some of the biggest bombshells from their trip.

Prince William and King Charles aren’t happy

With Harry and Meghan’s Nigeria trip being referred to as an unofficial royal tour, one expert has suggested the term would not have “pleased” King Charles or Prince William. Former BBC Royal correspondent Jennie Bond told OK! : “The King and Prince William are firmly of the belief that you are either in or out of the working Royals.

“This seems to be a rather strange halfway house. I think both the King and the Prince, and indeed the Government, will want it to be made clear that Harry is not representing either the Royal Family or Britain on this trip.”

Indeed, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria Richard Montgomery confirmed the couple were not representing the UK in Nigeria. He said: “It’s great that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are visiting Nigeria, which I understand is at the invitation of Defence Headquarters. But they are visiting in a private capacity, not an official one.”
