Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's recent trip to Nigeria has reportedly sparked great anger within the British royal family, particularly with King Charles III.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have just concluded a three-day trip to Nigeria to promote the Invictus Games, founded by the Duke of Sussex in 2014. This outing has been met with intense criticism from the British royal family, according to palace insiders.

"These trips are about us being able to go out and focus on the things that mean so much to us," Harry told People magazine. "And for us, it's about being able to be there."

Meghan added, "It's really meaningful. Just the ability to connect with people - that's what makes it special."

Despite their positive public remarks, the couple’s visit has reportedly infuriated King Charles III. A royal expert noted that the monarch is "angrier than anyone has ever seen him."

A Thorn in the Royal Side

The trip has not only ruffled feathers within the palace but has also sparked a debate over its perceived unofficial royal nature.

Critics argue that Harry and Meghan's activities closely resemble those of working royals, a role they renounced in 2020. This resemblance, according to British nobility expert Phil Dampier, is precisely what the palace wants to avoid.

"There’s a strong feeling among senior royals that Harry and Meghan are trying to have their cake and eat it," Dampier stated. "By conducting these high-profile tours, they are blurring the lines between their private ventures and their former royal duties."

Inside sources reveal that the warm reception Harry and Meghan received in Nigeria, complete with traditional dances and formal ceremonies, has particularly irked the royal family.

This treatment has fueled fears that the couple might be attempting to maintain a royal-like presence abroad despite stepping down from their official roles.

The issue seems to have hit a nerve with both King Charles and Prince William.

"William is absolutely furious and determined to find a way to stop this from happening in the future," royal commentator Angela Levin told The Mirror.

"Charles is reportedly more enraged than ever before."
