The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, reportedly made a donation to a charity in Nigeria to help flood victims.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make their donations to charity in Nigeria. This comes after the Duchess revealed on her recent Archetypes podcast that she is 43 percent Nigerian.
The Duchess of Sussex, 41, said in the sixth episode of her audio series yesterday that she found she is 43 percent Nigerian after taking a genealogical test ‘a couple of years ago.’
In a press release that accompanied the episode, a Spotify representative confirmed that the couple’s Archewell Foundation made donations to Save the Children and Unicef.
The spokesperson said the unspecified donations to the charities would ‘help provide relief following devastating floods wreaking havoc in Nigeria.’
Save the Children Nigeria also confirmed the donation in a tweet, saying: ‘More than 1.5 million children are at risk after devastating flooding in Nigeria.
‘Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation has donated to Save the Children in Nigeria as our teams deliver life-saving supplies to affected families.’
The floods in the country caused by heavy rain and a water release from a dam in neighbouring Cameroon, have so far killed more than 600 people, displaced around 1.4 million, and damaged or destroyed 440,000 hectares of farmland across Nigeria.
