The tour last month saw the couple visit military hospitals and attend sporting events in connection with the Invictus Games, with Nigeria participating in the tournament for the first time last year.

It was during the competition in Germany that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were invited by Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff to visit the country.

However, with the revelation that Meghan is 43 percent of Nigeria heritage, Mr Bell told TalkTV that in the aftermath of the visit, much of the attention has been on her.

He explained: “The visit, which I’m sure was deemed to be about Invictus, but all of the fallout from it seems to be about Meghan. Harry’s role in trying to drum up support for Invictus seems to have been put on the backburner.”
