Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just can’t stay out of trouble.

Now they’re in the middle of another ugly scandal.

And Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in hot water after this picture leaked to the Internet.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle take a picture with notorious criminal wanted in America

Prince Harry and former D-list actress Meghan Markle traveled to Nigeria for a tour of the African nation.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were welcomed by a small group of officials in Lagos, Nigeria after they landed.

Dr. Allen Onyema was one of the Nigerians who greeted them.

He runs the charter flight company, Air Peace, that shuttled them around the county during their three-day trip.

And he also happens to be a wanted criminal in the United States.

The Justice Department indicted Onyema in 2019 for a massive bank fraud and money laundering operation.

“. . . Onyema, the Chairman, CEO, and founder of Air Peace, a Nigerian airline, has been charged with bank fraud and money laundering for moving more than $20 million from Nigeria through United States bank accounts in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes,” the Justice Department said in a 2019 statement.

Onyema is accused of using the millions of dollars that he stole on luxury goods including a Rolls-Royce.

It’s unknown if Harry and Meghan realized they were taking a picture with a wanted criminal on the airport’s tarmac.

Onyema – who maintains his innocence – moved more than $45 million into business and personal bank accounts he opened in Atlanta, Georgia from overseas according to the Justice Department.

“Onyema allegedly leveraged his status as a prominent business leader and airline executive while using falsified documents to commit fraud,” U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak said at the time.

The trip to Nigeria had all the trappings of a royal tour but the British government said the couple was visiting the country in a private capacity.

Prince William and King Charles are reportedly “furious” at the trip according to royal watcher Tom Quinn.

“Charles is said to be angrier than anyone has ever seen him,” Quin told the Mirror. “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.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle respond to Nigerian scammer fiasco

Harry and Meghan passed the buck by blaming someone else for taking pictures of them with a notorious criminal then flying on his aircraft.

A source told The Daily Beast that their trip was put together by the Nigerian Chief of Defense Staff – the country’s top military official.

“The source also pointed out that Air Peace is the largest airline in Nigeria and West Africa, and has daily flights from Lagos to Britain’s London Gatwick airport,” The Daily Beast reported.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle caused another black eye for the Royal Family by letting a criminal handle their travel on their trip to Nigeria.
