Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle has revealed for the first time her genetic heritage, saying she is 43% Nigerian.

The 41-year-old made the revelation in the latest episode of her podcast, Archetypes, where she expressed her desire to learn more about her roots.

Meghan has two children with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
