Prince Harry – live: Duke of Sussex arrives in Nigeria with Meghan for Invictus after ‘second Charles snub’

King hosts garden party with royals as Prince Harry misses reunion

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Legos this morning after Prince Harry’s brief return to the UK where he celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games – but did not see King Charles due to conflict of newspaper.

Harry and Meghan are in Nigeria on a whirlwind tour to promote the games in Africa – and are expected to visit a school, meet injured servicemen and attend basketball and polo matches before attending a gala evening.

The couple will also attend a training session for the charity Nigeria: Unconquered – which collaborates with the Invictus Games – as well as a reception where military families will be honoured.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, returned to the UK on Tuesday afternoon for a service at St Paul’s Cathedral to celebrate Invictus. A few miles away, Charles welcomed guests to the first garden party of the year at Buckingham Palace.

The monarch and his son did not meet during Harry’s brief visit to the UK due to the king’s “full schedule”, Harry’s spokesperson said.

This statement was followed by news of a so-called “second snub”: Prince William is set to be named colonel-in-chief of Harry’s former military regiment, the Army Air Corps.

Meghan, 42, did not attend the celebrations in the UK and remained in Los Angeles before meeting Harry at Heathrow Airport on Thursday evening.

Harry and Meghan arrive in Nigeria for Invictus Games celebrations

The Duke of Sussex, 39, flew from the United Kingdom where he briefly visited alone to mark the anniversary of the event he founded in 2014.

He arrived on Tuesday afternoon (May 7) and suffered two apparent reprimands from his family.

The first was the news that his father, King Charles, was reportedly too busy to see his youngest son after returning to work last week.

The second snub came in the form of the news that Prince Wiliam would soon be appointed colonel-in-chief of Harry’s old military regiment, the Army Air Corps.

Harry appeared to show courage at the UK appreciation ceremony which he attended on Wednesday without his immediate family.

He smiled at well-wishers from the public who came to watch his first public event in some time and he was supported at the ceremony by various members of the Spencer family.

Body language expert says Harry was relieved by warm UK welcome

A body language expert has claimed Prince Harry was relieved by the warm welcome he received at the Invictus Games thank you ceremony.

Psychologist Judi James said Harry’s initial posture suggested he had a degree of “anxiety” about how people would react to him in his first public appearance in some time.

“(His) lack of body engagement (probably gave him) the opportunity to walk out to save face if his welcome (was) less than warm,” she told the Online mail.

“Harry’s smile and narrowed eyes suggest he might be excited and relieved to meet fans in the UK.”
