The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has revealed that after her genealogy test, she discovered that she is 43 percent Nigerian.

Meghan made the revelation on the latest episode of her bombshell podcast, Archetypes.

UK Mirror reports that Meghan while unpicking the “Angry Black Woman” stereotype in a thought-provoking discussion with Nigerian American actress and comedian, Issa Rae, writer, Ziwe Fumudoh and professor Emily Bernards, told listeners that she took a genealogy test which revealed that she is 43 percent Nigerian.

The newspaper quoted Meghan as saying, “I just had my genealogy done a couple years ago. I’m 43% Nigerian.”

Meghan, who was excited, opened up about her roots during the major podcast moment as the writer who was desperate to know more about the Duchess asked, “Are you serious? This is huge. Igbo, Yoruba, do we know?”

In her response, the Duchess of Sussex then said, “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?”

UK Mirror reports that 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.
