King Charles and Prince William are reportedly 'absolutely furious' with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their recent Nigerian tour. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a quick stop at the African country to promote Prince Harry's Invictus Games.

The three-day trip saw Meghan open up about her Nigerian heritage, while Harry was spotted joining in with a volleyball match. Despite being welcomed with open arms in Nigeria, it seems not everyone was happy with their trip.

Some even dubbed it an unofficial royal tour. According to a royal expert, The Prince of Wales was not happy with his younger brother and his sister-in-law.

Royal expert Tom Quinn claimed: "William is absolutely furious and determined to find a way to stop this happening in future. Charles is said to be angrier than anyone has ever seen him.

"What’s really upset the applecart is the fact that that the Nigerians treated Meghan and Harry as if they too thought this was an official tour – all the signs were there as the couple were greeted with dances, receptions, visits to schools and charities."

The royal author said there had been fears among the Royal Family that Prince Harry and wife Meghan 'would try to pull a fast one', Mirror reports. The trip 'confirmed their worst fears', he claimed.

He said: "It’s as if Harry and Meghan have gone rogue – their Nigeria trip is a bold statement that they refuse to accept they are no longer working royals. William and Charles are scratching their heads and thinking 'How are we going to control this nightmare situation?'"

Mr Quinn claimed it's 'easy to see why the senior royals are worried'. He added: "Everything you might expect from an official royal visit was there – the receptions, the visits to schools and charities, to wounded soldiers and the disabled.

"Meghan and Harry's speeches and their whole attitude has been designed to give the impression that they are still fully paid-up royals and William and his father King Charles don’t like it one bit. For Charles and William, it’s as if Meghan and Harry are saying 'We don’t need your permission to be working royals – we will do it on our own terms whenever and wherever we like'."
