By Sarah Tetteh

It’s the story that has broken the internet –  and now South London Press Showbiz is delving inside London’s most famous export Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle’s epic trip to Nigeria. 

We can exclusively reveal Meghan, who recently discovered she is part Nigerian, was given a string of stunning new names befitting with the culture, to officially welcome her in.  

“Omowale Ada Mazi Adetokunbo Amira are just a few of the names she has received while here!”, says former Clapham girl and media sensation Stephanie Busari-Bediham, who was right there covering the action after receiving a personal invite.

In a very sweet moment, Meghan and Harry were gifted sensational bespoke teddy bears for their children Archie and Lilibet, designed by talented local teenager Grace from her @graceteddies brand she launched when she was just 5 years old. 

Grace is the daughter of Stephanie, who is the award-winning CNN Nigeria Bureau Chief and Senior Editor Africa and she couldn’t be more proud of her child’s entrepreneurial achievements. 

Neither could the Duchess of Sussex, who was besotted with the teddies. 

Just look at her reaction from our exclusive video online as she pulled Stephanie in for a huge hug after receiving her glam goodie bag. 

Proud South Londoner Stephanie, who now lives in Nigeria gave extraordinary insight into the couple on their visit.

She said: “Wow! What a weekend that was! Flying to Abuja to cover the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visit, I truly didn’t know what to expect.

“I was very pleasantly surprised. They are fun, caring, loved up, compassionate, total naturals with a crowd. 

“To see Harry sitting on the floor to play volleyball with disabled servicemen was something and he showed such compassion too during his hospital visit to Kaduna.
“It was a private visit but looked like a royal tour in all but name! So happy that Harry and Meghan visited Nigeria to shine a spotlight on the injured servicemen and women, Invictus Games and mental health — and to dispel a few myths about Nigeria being a dangerous place!
“Also wonderful to see Meghan celebrated and welcomed as per Naija girl! 

“Welcome Omowale Ada Mazi Adetokunbo Amira.”

Meanwhile young Grace has revealed the inspiration behind her incredible teddy bears. 

“When I was five, I moved to Nigeria with my mum. I cried when I saw children begging on the streets and I always knew I wanted to help them in any way I could. 

“As I turned nine in November, 2019, I now have a chance to do that with the launch of my foundation and the #GraceTeddies brand, which will give money to support children on the streets for every teddy bear sold.
“Please buy and support @graceteddies and help a street child today by telling everyone about us. Thank you.” 

Ever the true style icon, Stephanie thanked her beauty squad for kitting her out just in time for the esteemed visit. 

She said: “When I got the invitation from the office of the DG of @worldtradeorganization Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to be a panelist at the Women in Leadership event co-hosted by her and the Duchess of Sussex, I had a total pinch me moment.
“My thoughts immediately turned to what I would wear and the first name that came to my mind was @tubo__ “Classic, elegant and stylish was what the event called for and @tubobereni_ and her excellent team delivered in spades, creating my corseted aso-oke top and pleated skirt in the blink of an eye.
“The colour, cut and finish is outstanding. I got so many compliments. Thank you.

“Thank you also to the rest of my glam squad @kukushair. You always deliver flawless hair quality. And @ronaldthe7th for the facebeat of life and videos.”
