Meghan Markle shared sweet sentiments about daughter Princess Lilibet during her and Prince Harry’s Nigeria trip.

The Duchess of Sussex gave rare insight into the 2-year-old’s personality while visiting Lightway Academy with her husband on Friday.

Markle, 42, told kindergarten students that dance is her toddler’s “favorite class” because of “all the jumping around.”

While speaking at the school about mental Health later that same day, the “Suits” alum described a recent conversation with Lilibet.

“A few weeks ago, she looked at me and she could just see the reflection in my eyes,” she recalled. “And she was [like], ‘Mama, I see me in you.'”

Markle and Harry, 39, are also the parents of 5-year-old son Prince Archie and mentioned his recent birthday during their visit.

The former actress also revealed that their son is interested in “construction.”

The couple welcomed Archie and Lilibet in May 2019 and June 2021, respectively, and their family of four lives in Montecito, Calif.

Markle and Harry appear to have left their children at home during their trip to Africa.

The Nigeria jaunt comes on the heels of Harry spending two days solo in London — and seemingly being snubbed by his father, King Charles III, on multiple occasions.

Not only did the monarch, 75, not have time in his busy schedule to see his youngest son, but he reportedly also ordered all working family members to attend his garden party at the same time as Harry’s Invictus Games service.

Charles’ Buckingham Palace soirée on Wednesday took place only miles away from the prince’s ceremony at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Harry has had a strained relationship with his dad and brother, Prince William, since he and Markle left the country — and stepped back from their duties — in 2020.

The duo, who officially resigned in 2021, have been vocal about their issues with the royal family in a viral Oprah Winfrey interview, a Netflix docuseries and Harry’s “Spare” memoir.

Charles is currently battling cancer, as is William’s wife, Kate Middleton.
