Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent trip to Nigeria has been interpreted by the royal commentator as a strategic move to assert influence on King Charles.

The pair travelled to the country for a three-day visit upon receiving an invitation from Nigeria's top military figure, Christopher Musa. During their stay, the Sussexes advocated for the mental health programs aimed at youth under their Archewell Foundation and raised awareness for the Invictus Games, which Nigeria became a part of for the first time the previous year.

Speaking about the trip to Nana Akua on GB News, royal commentator Angela Levin said she thought it was a "very dangerous" move, claiming the pair want to "take over" from King Charles.

She said: "He [Harry] says that it's important for us to meet directly with people supporting our causes and listen in order to bring about solutions, support and positive change.

"There's a lot wrong with that because it's not his job. He is not a [working] member of the Royal Family. He's not working for them and he is going to start repairing things and handling things and making it all right.

"And I think this is the implication, that they want to go to other places around and take it over from the King and the family because it's difficult for them at the moment.

"They can't go abroad because of the cancer issue. So they're trying to take it away."

She added: "I think it's very, very dangerous." Nana Akua said: "The Nigerians didn't buy into it though."

Harry and Meghan have hinted that their trip to Nigeria was not an isolated event, suggesting more such tours are being planned.

The Duke of Sussex told People: “It is hugely important for us to meet directly with people, supporting our causes and listening, in order to bring about solutions, support and positive change.

“There’s only so much one can do from home and over Zoom, so we look forward to travelling more because the work matters.

“Whether it’s the Archewell Foundation, Invictus, or any of our other causes, there will always be reasons to meet the people at the heart of our work.”
