Prince Harry, Meghan break silence on report of receiving free air transport from ‘wanted’ Nigerian businessman

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have responded to recent reports regarding their travel arrangements in Nigeria, which included complimentary air transport provided by Air Peace, the largest airline in Nigeria and West Africa.

The airline is chaired by Nigerian businessman, Dr. Allen Onyema, who faces allegations in the United States related to fraud charges concerning millions of dollars.

According to sources close to the couple, their travel within Nigeria was facilitated by the Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff, and they used Air Peace for logistical reasons during their visit.

The couple’s representatives have clarified that their association with the airline was not linked to the legal issues surrounding its chairman.

During their trip, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met with Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwoland in Southwest Nigeria, despite previous legal issues the Oluwo has faced in the United States.

In other royal news, Prince William is expected to serve as an usher at the upcoming wedding of Hugh Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster.

The guest list for the wedding does not include Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment, or King Charles, who is the godfather of the groom.

There have been reports suggesting tension surrounding the attendance of Prince Charles and Queen Camilla at the wedding, following past incidents involving protocol and personal disagreements.

This situation mirrors similar past events, such as their decision not to attend the 2004 wedding of Lady Tamara Grosvenor and Edward van Cutsem due to protocol concerns and interpersonal tensions.
