Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Lean Into Boho Style for First Nigeria Tour Appearance

On day one of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s Nigeria Tour, the pair arrived at a school in Abuja, the country’s capital city. Clad in coordinated monochromatic linen attire, the couple appeared ready to brave the country’s hot climate and eager to engage in the events taking place on the first day of their visit. 

For an elevated, effortlessly elegant take on the recent boho-chic renaissance, Markle sported a neutral peach-toned maxi dress. Complete with a subtly tiered skirt, a sharp waistline, a halter neck, and a backless component, the dress was the vision of quiet luxury—a style that the Duchess has overwhelmingly favored since the family’s move to Montecito. Markle finished off her boho-inspired California cool look with a low ponytail with braided details and a pair of understated heels—which were hidden under the Suits star’s flowy, floor-length dress. While Markle’s dress was undoubtedly front-and-center in this look, her pared-back gold jewelry also made a major statement. Sparkling in the sun, the Duchess wore vintage Lanvin button earrings, a timelessly chic Cartier watch, and a simple gold necklace. 

On the heels of his return to the UK for his Invictus Games appearance, Prince Harry swapped out his sharp blue suit for a laid-back linen look. The former royal went for a true neutral hue with his outfit, donning a khaki-colored button-down shirt and pant set. 

For the first day of their short, but jam-packed visit, the couple visited schoolchildren at the Lights Academy in Abuja, where they spent the day touring the school, meeting the students, and enjoying a traditional dance exhibition. In the afternoon, Prince Harry visited a nearby military hospital, where he met injured service members. 

Fans noted the absence of the couple’s children, Archie and Lilibet, during the Duke and Duchess’s first official appearance in Nigeria. As the two children—five years old and two years old, respectively—are still young, it has been speculated that they remained at home in California for the duration of the 72-hour trip. 

Although the couple’s trip is completely unaffiliated with the royal family—Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped away from their role as Senior Royals in 2020—fans of the royal family were quick to note several aspects of the trip, with the most glaring being the name of Markle’s dress. The peach-toned piece, created by designer Heidi Merrick, is officially called “The Windsor,” which critics of Markle ran wild with, pointing out the irony in the situation. Whether or not it was intentional—or even known to Markle, who typically works with a stylist—is unknown, but the surfacing of this fact has riled up plenty of fans and media outlets alike. 

Over the rest of their Nigeria tour, the couple has a packed itinerary, with Markle and Prince Harry making both joint and separate appearances at various other events, including a Women in Leadership conference, a basketball clinic, and a reception honoring military service members and their families.
