Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have hailed their “unforgettable” tour of Nigeria amid uproar surrounding their charity’s paperwork.

The couple visited the country for three days to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games organized by the Duke of Sussex.

On their website, the couple described the unofficial visit as “unforgettable” and said it would be “the first of many unforgettable trips.”

The statement came after the state of California declared the couple’s charity “delinquent.”

The Archewell Foundation was granted this status after “failing to apply [the] Required annual report(s) and/or renewal fees.”

However, it emerged on Tuesday evening that the fees and paperwork had been submitted correctly – last year – and so the charity was no longer listed as being in arrears.

An Archewell Foundation spokesperson said: “We have seriously investigated the situation and can confirm that the Archewell Foundation remains fully compliant and in good standing.”

The news comes after the unveiling of a stunning new portrait of King Charles, the first to be commissioned since the coronation.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrive in Los Angeles

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent three days in the country to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games for Prince Harry.

While there, Meghan described Nigeria as her “country” after a DNA test showed she was 43 percent Nigerian.

The couple described the tour, which took place as private citizens, as “wonderful” and said it would be “the first of many unforgettable trips”.

They now have to confront the problems their charity, the Archewell Foundation, is facing in America after the state of California declared them “delinquent” while they were abroad.

This was reportedly due to a $200 check getting lost in the mail, which a representative confirmed has now been reissued.

But until the problem is resolved, the Archewell Foundation cannot distribute or collect funds.

Prince Harry increases demand for ‘tap therapy’

Percussion therapy, as the name suggests, involves patients or therapists tapping on the body to create what is known as “bilateral stimulation.”

This instead activates both sides of the brain and is thought to have a calming effect.

Dr Charlotte Russell, a clinical psychologist, conducted a poll on its popularity in the last five years and found that 84% of respondents agreed that demand for psychotherapy has increased in this time – with 16% strongly agreeing.

“I think Prince Harry’s openness about therapy and EMDR is one of the other things that has contributed to the attitude towards psychotherapy changing and it becoming more normalized,” she said.

Did Harry and Meghan’s original Megxit plan actually work?

“We are here today to tell you that is not the case.”
