Hospitality at ‘The Delborough Lagos’ second to none – Prince Harry

Must read

Treated to a lunch by eminent Nigerians at ‘The Delborough Lagos’ Sunday afternoon, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry expressed satisfaction noting that “hospitality at ‘The Delborough Lagos’ is second to none.”

On her part, while complimenting the Duke, the Duchess, Meghan also acknowledged that “attention to details at ‘The Delborough Lagos’ is empirical”.

The couple who expressed enthusiasm for their visit, said they could not wait to experience Nigeria’s culture.

Harry said: “We are delighted to explore the rich cultural heritage of Nigeria.”

Meghan, on her part, added: “It is a privilege to engage with the vibrant Nigerian community.”

They were received to an energetic cultural display at the hotel to their admiration.

Harry and Meghan, on Saturday, met with Nigerian businessman and owner of ‘The Delborough Lagos’, Dr Uzochukwu Stanley in Abuja.

The couple is in Nigeria on a three-day visit to promote Invictus Games, where Prince Harry played a seated volleyball match with Nigerian Army veterans, mostly wounded in battle against the country’s Islamist insurgency, on Saturday.

At an Officer’s Mess complex in Abuja, Harry’s team dressed in yellow played off in an exhibition against a team led by Nigeria’s chief of defence staff, Gen. Christopher Musa.

The Duke and the Duchess, visiting the West African nation, Nigeria, for the first time on the invitation of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, began their three-day visit by going to the Lightway Academy, which receives support from their Archewell Foundation to train young girls affected by conflicts in Nigeria, before going on to meet with the nation’s military officers.

At the Abuja school where they kicked off an inaugural mental health summit organised by a local non-profit GEANCO, which partners with their Foundation, the couple was received by a dancing troupe and a crowd of excited students and teachers.

“We’ve got to acknowledge those amazing dance moves!” Meghan said. “My husband was excited to jump up!”

They then went into the classrooms to interact with the students, who showed robot cars they had built.

They spoke to the students about mental health, and about their own children, Archie and Lilibet.

“In some cases around the world … there is a stigma when it comes to mental health. Too many people don’t want to talk about it,” Harry said. “So will you promise to us that after today, no more being scared, no more being unsure of mental health?”
