The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived on London’s Southbank to officially open a major exhibition about the life of Nelson Mandela being staged in the centenary year of his birth.
Harry and Meghan are touring the exhibition at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which traces Mr Mandela’s career from activist to president through six themes: character, comrade, leader, prisoner, negotiator and statesman.
Meghan looked chic in the brilliant summer sunshine, wearing a pale pink trench dress by House of Nonie with matching nude heels – and had her hair swept back in a messy bun.
Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter said today that the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s stance on ‘justice and fairness in the world makes them a shining example for the youth of today’.
A specially curated programme of historic artefacts, photographs and film is on show at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall in tribute to Mr Mandela on the centenary of his birth.
Harry and Meghan spent 45 minutes being shown around the collection after being warmly welcomed by Mr Mandela’s granddaughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela.
