By Ismail Auwal

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle,
has claimed that her ancestry test revealed that she is 43 percent Nigerian.

While disclosing this in the most recent episode of her podcast, Archetypes, Markle expressed her desire to learn more about her ancestors.

During the episode, titled the multiracial, Issa Rae, where a Nigerian-American writer, and professor Emily Bernards were interviewed she said, “I just had my genealogy done a couple years ago,” Meghan explains, as her guests eagerly ask her to share the result.

The Duchess then proudly says “I’m 43% Nigerian” to the shock of Ziwe, who screams, “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: “So I mean, I’m going to start to dig deeper into all of these because, anyone that I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are just like, ‘Uh! What?”

After absorbing the bombshell revelation, Ziwe affirms the Duchess indeed looks like a Nigerian, precisely like her ‘aunt Uzo’, so ‘this is great’, she added.

The podcast revelation was the first time Meghan would open up about her ancestral background on the public stage.
