The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has claimed to be 43% Nigerian after taking a genealogy test which revealed her roots.

Meghan who is an American, made this statement during a podcast hosted on Spotify with Ziwerekoru “Ziwe” Fumudoh is a Nigerian-American comedian and writer known for her satirical commentary on politics, race relations, and young adulthood.

“I just had my genealogy done a couple of years ago,” Meghan said.

Ziwe 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 I’ve told, especially Nigerian women, are just like, what?”

A genealogical DNA test is a DNA-based test used that looks at specific locations of a person’s genome to find or verify ancestral genealogical relationships or to estimate the ethnic mixture of an individual.
