Prince Harry and Meghan visit Nelson Mandela tribute in London

Prince Harry and Meghan visit Nelson Mandela tribute in London

Today (18 July) is Nelson Mandela day.

The Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition can be seen until the 19 of August. The official Twitter account of Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Cambridge wrote, "Their Royal Highnesses meet Paul and Adelaide Joseph, Anti-Apartheid activists and close friends of Nelson Mandela and Winnie Mandela".

Clearly having a dig at the recent spate of Meghan's public appearances, with her latest event seeing her pay tribute to Nelson Mandela at an exhibition in London, Samantha has slammed Meghan's public persona compared to her private one.

100 trees were planted in a new exhibit representing 100 grassroots organisations that The Elders have selected from South Africa, and other countries in Africa and around the world for their demonstration of moral leadership in the spirit of Mandela's legacy.

It is the first time the exhibition will be shown in the United Kingdom after successful runs in various forms around the world, including six weeks at the Paris Town Hall in 2013.

Ms Dlamini-Mandela, 39, a fashion designer and entrepreneur, shook hands and spoke with the Duchess, who looked radiant in a blush pink sleeveless jacket dress by House of Nonie teamed with matching nude court shoes.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived at the Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall in London for a tour of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition. The Duchess of Sussex, who was usually known for her opting for pastel shades teamed with a messy bun was seen ditching it to pick bolder hues and textured hairdos. In 2015, Prince Harry had visited Robben Island, where Mandela had been incarcerated in a small cell. The video shows Nasty C speaking about Nelson Mandela's legacy and how it has inspired the rapper to be more socially involved. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 in recognition of his work towards the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa. This exhibition has opened up the Mandela archives, bringing out many priceless items which have never before left South Africa.
