Prince William is reportedly "absolutely furious" with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over their recent tour of Nigeria, which some have labelled an unofficial Royal tour. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited the African nation to promote the Invictus Games, but their trip has sparked criticism.

Royal commentator Tom Quinn spoke exclusively to The Mirror about the situation, stating: "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. For all the latest on news, politics, sports, and showbiz from the USA, go to The Mirror US."

He went on to say: "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."

Quinn suggested that there had been concerns within the Royal Family that the Sussexes "would try to pull a fast one", reports the Mirror, and he believes their Nigerian visit "has confirmed their worst fears."

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?'"

Reflecting on Meghan and Harry's trip, Tom said that it's "easy to see" why the senior royals are worried.

"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'."
