The first lady of Nigeria’s criticism of Meghan Markle for her great Hollywood looks: “This is not the Met Gala”

The stellar visit of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Nigeria gives a new headline. Meghan traveled, on May 10, with her husband to this West African country, on the coast of the Gulf of Guinea, following her Nigerian origins (45% of her genetic background is Nigerian, as as she herself said). Also, as part of an international tour by the dukes to promote the tenth anniversary of the Invictus Games. In this context, the former American actress landed with glamorous luggage that has now received serious criticism from the Nigerian first lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu. She publishes it New York Post.

With designs by Yves Saint Laurent, Carolina Herrera or Burberry. Thus, like a star, she paraded Meghan through Abuja, the capital. “I see myself in each of you,” said the duchess at the opening ceremony. At that first reception, Harry gave a speech about the importance of mental health and evoked Diana of Wales, who suffered from bulimia. Harry was 12 years old when he lost his mother. We saw Meghan wearing a Heidi Merrick Windsor model, with a halter neck that earned an A+ in style.

She also wore a lemon yellow tunic design by Carolina Herrera, which she has already chosen on other occasions. She accessorized it with a lime green striped artisan shawl. The red spaghetti strap dress is very striking, with ribbed details and a showy ruffle at the hem. By the way, Meghan wore it to present, as the Duchess of Sussex, a female empowerment event with her Archewell Foundation.

Weeks after this trip of the dukes, the wife of the Nigerian president, Bola Tinubu, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has disapproved of this display of style and glamor by transmitting a message to women, a close message so that they do not stop being themselves, no Lose your identity and don’t try to emulate movie celebrities. “We see how they dress,” the first lady said. “This is not the Met Gala (…) We don’t want nudity in our culture.” The senator continued: “Why did Meghan come here looking for Africa? We know who we are, don’t lose your identity,” reported the aforementioned media.
