Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's visit to Nigeria continues to captivate attention. This Sunday, the couple stopped in Lagos, where Meghan Markle, the Duchess and daughter-in-law of King Charles III, turned heads in a strikingly bright yellow gown, fulfilling her commitment to embracing local fashion styles.

On Friday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle responded to an invitation from Nigeria's Chief of Defense Staff, General Christopher Musa. They embarked on their journey to the country, situated along the Gulf of Guinea. The couple's visit has been extensively covered by media outlets worldwide, highlighting the royal reception they've been given.

However, the Sussexes' trip to Africa isn't purely for enjoyment. A report from the Daily Mail reveals that Harry and Meghan have engaged with officials and met children at the Wuse Lightway Academy. At this school, which benefits from the Archewell Foundation's support, the students had a chance to discuss mental health issues with the 42-year-old prince. Furthermore, on Sunday, the couple paid a visit to the residence of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State, where they were warmly treated as distinguished guests.

In her most recent appearance, Meghan captivated onlookers in an elegant, bright yellow, floor-length gown from Carolina Herrera's collection, valued at around $4,000. Markle chose leather slingback sandals, a green striped scarf, and gold jewelry to complement her outfit. This choice was a testament to her earlier vow when the Duchess expressed her desire to embrace local fashion traditions during a speech in Abuja.

"It has been a whirlwind 24 hours since we arrived, and I very quickly got the memo that I need to wear more colour, so I can fit in with all of you and your incredible fashion!" Meghan remarked, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
