Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have come under fire for allegedly making a major blunder during their trip to Nigeria.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reacted as they received huge backlash for allegedly enjoying free flights around Nigeria by an airline company whose boss is reportedly "wanted" in the United States.

During their three-day visit, Harry and Meghan attended several events around the country and while British Airways was their choice for international travel, the courtesy flights within Nigeria were provided by Air Peace.

The founder of airline is Dr. Allen Onyema, who faces "multiple charges linked to millions of dollars’ worth of alleged fraud set down in a federal indictment filed in November 2019," according to the Mail.

Now a source close to Meghan and Harry has dismissed the allegations, claiming their travel within the West African nation was organised by the Nigerian Chief of Defense Staff.

The source, speaking to the Daily Beast, pointed out that Air Peace is the largest airline in Nigeria and West Africa, and has daily flights from Lagos to Britain’s London Gatwick airport.

The indictment alleges that Onyema used his status as a business leader and airline executive to launder more than £16million ($20million) from Nigeria through US bank accounts, according to the outlet.

However, there is no evidence or suggestion that Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet's parents Harry and Meghan were aware of the charges against the airline owner.

Harry and Meghan have also been blasted for their latest trip by a royal commentator who claimed the couple's move was "very dangerous" and accused them of wanting to "take over" from King Charles.
