'Mama, I see me in you!' Meghan, Duchess of Sussex recalls sweet words daughter Lilibet, two,

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has claimed that Princess Lilibet can "see herself" in her.

The 42-year-old former actress - who relinquished royal duties with Prince Harry in 2020 in favour of a life in LA - has Prince Archie, five, and two-year-old Lilibet with her husband and during a visit to a school in Nigeria’s capital Abuja on Friday (10.05.24), claimed that her youngest has already begun to notice a resemblance.

She said: "Our daughter, Lili, she's much, much tinier than you guys. She's about to turn three. And a few weeks ago she looked at me and she would just see the reflection in my eyes.

"And she [goes], ‘Mama, I see me in you!'

"Oh, now she was talking really literally.

"But I hung onto those words in a very different way. And I thought, yes, I do see me in you, and you see me in you."

The former 'Suits' star - who controversially named her daughter after a nickname that Prince Philip gave to the late Queen Elizabeth in private - was joined by her husband on the trip and they led the class of schoolchildren in a singalong of 'Jump Up, Turn Around' and she later revealed that "singing and dancing".

The visit is part of the couple's first tour as non-working royals and they were there to mark the anniversary of the Invictus Games, which was founded by the Duke of Sussex in 2014 for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans following his own time in the British Army.

In 2022, Meghan discovered that she was in fact 43 per cent Nigerian after taking a genealogy test.

Speaking on her now-defunct 'Archetypes' podcast, she explained: "I'm going to start to dig deeper into all this because anybody that I've told, especially Nigerian women, are like 'What!'"
