Who needs “assurance” when she can have a kingdom?… Nigerians react to royal wedding


The attention of the  world on Saturday is on England where Prince Harry, formerly known as Prince Harry of Wales, got married to Meghan Markel, an American Actress, in glamorous ceremony beamed live on leading television networks including BBC and CNN.

Prince Harry, who on Saturday morning was announced the Duke of Sussex, is the younger son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana of Wales, and the sixth in line of succession to the British throne. His bride, Markle, became the Duchess of Sussex.

The Royal Wedding, as the event was dubbed, was unique in several ways, explaining why many across the world were talking about it.

Markel, Harry’s bride is three years older than him and was married to Trevor Engelson in 2011. The marriage did not last as the couple got divorced in August 2013. Harry and Markle met on a blind date that a mutual friend set up. After their relationship became public, Markel announced her retirement from acting in 2017.

Back home in Nigeria, many took to twitter to share their opinions on the Royal Wedding and why it stood out.

A Twitter account holder, Dr DropTop, recalled how the social media went agog in April after David Adeleke, a hip hop musician popularly known as Davido, gifted his girlfriend, Chioma, a luxury Porsche car, purportedly worth N45 million.

Comparing the two events, DropTop tweeted, “Davido gave Chioma a car of 45 million!! Blah blah “Assurance” everywhere. Prince Harry literally gave Meghan a kingdom(becoming the Duchess of Sussex)!!.. What do we call this?”


Another tweeter user, t-yan, wrote, “This all started with Meghan’s friend setting her up on a blind date with Prince Harry. My friends are actually useless.”
