The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has revealed that she is 43% Nigerian after taking a genealogy test.
Markle made this known in the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes, where she expressed her desire to learn more about her roots, Mirrors reported on Tuesday.
Markle discussed with American actress Issa Rae, Nigerian-American writer Ziwe Fumudoh, and professor Emily Bernards. The Duchess of Sussex stated she took a genealogy test, which revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.
When her guests asked her to share what the results entailed, the Duchess said, “I’m 43% Nigerian,” to the shock of Ziwe, who responded, “No way!”. Ziwe further asked, “Are you serious? This is huge. Igbo, Yoruba, do we know?”
The Duchess of Sussex then answered, “I’m going to start to dig deeper into all of this because anyone that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are just like, what?”
