LISTEN: Meghan Markle Reveals She Uncovered Nigerian Roots After Taking Genealogy Test

Meghan Markle has revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.


The Duchess of Sussex disclosed this on the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes.


While having a conversation with Senegalese-American actress and comedian Issa Rae, Nigerian-American comedian and writer Ziwe Fumudoh, and professor Emily Bernards, the Duchess of Sussex told listeners that she took a genealogy test which revealed that she is 43% Nigerian.


“I just had my genealogy done a couple years ago,” Meghan explains, as her guests eagerly ask her to share what the results entailed.


The Duchess then proudly says “I’m 43% Nigerian” to the shock of Ziwe, who shouts “No way!”.


Ziwe, who is Nigerian-American, then asks: “Are you serious? This is huge. Igbo, Yoruba, do we know?”


The Duchess of Sussex then tells her listeners: “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?”


After absorbing the bombshell revelation, Nigerian-American Ziwe continues to joke that the Duchess looks like “her aunt Ouzo” in a heart-warming clip between the pair.
