Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.

During a conversation with Senegalese-American actress and comedian Issa Rae and Nigerian-American comedian and writer Ziwe Fumudoh, the mother of two revealed this.

According to her, she took a genealogy test a few years ago, which revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.

“I recently found out that I am 43% Nigerian after taking a genealogy test.”

The revelation surprised Ziwe, who exclaimed, “No way!” and inquired about the tribe she was from in Nigeria.

I’m going to start looking into things more because whenever I tell anyone, especially Nigerian women, they always ask, “What?” Meghan answered.

Meghan had previously discussed her biracial heritage (her mother is African-American and her father is Caucasian), but she did not delve deeper into her roots until recently.

The duchess opened up about her mixed-race heritage in a 2015 essay published in ELLE Magazine, writing, “Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.”

“While my mixed heritage may have created a grey area around my self-identity, keeping me on both sides of the fence, I have come to embrace that.” To express who I am, where I’m from, and how proud I am to be a strong, confident mixed-race woman.”

During the couple’s tour of Africa in September 2019, Meghan addressed her racial heritage for the first time since marrying the Duke of Sussex a year earlier.
