Meghan Markle and Prince Harry arrived in Nigeria today for a three-day visit of the country.

They have a jam-packed itinerary, which began this morning at a local school, Lightway Academy, and continued at Nigeria's Defense headquarters. For the visit to the school, Meghan wore a pale pink Heidi Merrick dress (the style is called the "Windsor"), vintage Lanvin earrings, and Emme Parsons sandals. She accessorized with a tennis bracelet from Ariel Gordon jewelry, plus Cartier pieces that are staples of her wardrobe—including a Cartier Gold Tank Française Watch, which possibly belonged to Princess Diana and the Love Yellow Gold Bracelet.

This morning's events included a mental health summit, where both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke. “It is a complete honor to have our first visit to Nigeria, [to] be here with all of you,” Meghan said in her remarks. “We believe in you. We believe in your futures. We believe in your ability to continue to tell your stories and to just be honest with each other. There is no need to suffer in silence. Just make sure that you are taking care of yourselves and that begins with your mental health by really talking about whatever's coming up for you.”

In the afternoon, Chief of Defense Staff Christopher Musa formally welcomed the Sussexes during a meeting at the Defence Headquarters in the heart of Abuja. In the visitor's book, Meghan signed, "With gratitude for the support of the Invictus community. And for welcoming me home." (On her Archetypes podcast, Meghan revealed that a genealogy test told her she had Nigerian heritage.)

For the occasion, Meghan changed into an ivory suit—which appears to be Aquazurra—for a meeting at Nigeria's Defense HQ. Prince Harry also changed, into a green suit, so together, they make up the colors of the Nigerian flag.
