Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wrapped up their three-day visit to Nigeria on Sunday. But on Friday, a beautiful, unseen image of them in full swing of their trip was shared.

The image was taken by the couple's close friend Misan Harriman, who joined the Duke and Duchess as they headed overseas to promote Harry's Invictus Games. Nigeria made history as the first African country to take part in the competition last year in Dusseldorf.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visit the Nigerian Armed Forces’ Defence Headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria," Misan wrote in the caption.

The trip was certainly a memorable one for Meghan. Shortly after their travels, she opened up about the connections she made particularly with the young girls she met. 

She told People Magazine: "I saw myself in them. I see the potential in all of these young girls—and, by the way, in these young boys as well."

She drew parallels between the aspirations she holds for these children and the hopes she harbours for her own children, Prince Archie, five, and Princess Lilibet, two. "It's what we see in our own children—to give them that promise and excitement for their futures."

Harry also shed light on his experience in Nigeria: "Trips are about us being able to go out and go and focus on the things that mean so much to us," he explained, adding that real change comes from "being on the ground."
