The Duke and Duchess of Sussex last month ventured to the West African country for a three-day tour, during which the “Suits” alum referred to Nigeria as “my country.”

He also gave the mom of two a traditional Yoruba name of Adetokunbo.

Following her trip, Markle penned a heartfelt letter to the ruler, in which she thanked him for bestowing the Chieftaincy Title upon her and for taking care of her and Harry.

“Your Imperial Majesty, Thank you for your warm welcome to Nigeria. I am deeply humbled by your blessing of the traditional Yoruba name, Adetokunbo. I treasure the name and appreciate your trust in me to carry it with grace and dignity,” Markle wrote in the letter, obtained by local outlet Western Post.

“Our visit to Nigeria was important for many reasons, but not least because it gave us an opportunity to explore and understand my heritage, which extends to our children. We look forward to coming back home one day.”

Markle and Harry, who quit royal life in 2020, were invited to Nigeria by the country’s chief of defense staff — its highest-ranking military official.

The Sussexes returned home with over 20 presents from their trip — with gifts ranging from artwork and clothing, to jewelry and literature.

“It was such warm hospitality and it was a really meaningful trip,” the “Suits” alum, 42, told People after the getaway.

“It was incredibly memorable and special. That alone is the best souvenir to take with us — all the memories we’ve made.”

Since the pair are no longer senior working members of the royal family, they were allowed to accept the many gifts they were given during their visit.

Elsewhere, Harry told the outlet that the trip was important for the couple and for the Invictus Games as a whole.

“Always nice to be on the move, in a sense, but also these trips are about us being able to go out and go and focus on the things that mean so much to us and support the causes that are close to our heart,” he said.

“And being able to be on the ground that, to us, is what it’s all about,” he added.

While the couple don’t have any confirmed travel plans at this time, the father of two said this visit will hopefully be one of many, and even hinted at similar trips taking place in the near future.
