Meghan and Harry 'are a shining example to today's youth' says Nelson Mandela's gran

On Tuesday Prince Harry and Meghan Markle met Nelson Mandela's grand-daughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela at the opening of an exhibition showcasing his life and career.

Dlamini-Mandela hailed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's support for 'justice and fairness in the world, calling them a shining example for the youth of today'.

She said it was "an honour" for Harry and Meghan to visit the event at London's Southbank Centre.

Ms Dlamini-Mandela, described the exhibition showing her grandfather's as an activist to president as "hugely significant".

It is the first time it has been shown in the UK

Harry and Meghan also met representatives from the exhibition centre, and one of Mr Mandela's fellow inmates.

Chairman of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition Lord Hain, said: "London was the centre of the anti-apartheid struggle.

"It was here that Mandela's close comrade Oliver Tambo lived, led and directed the worldwide struggle, from military operations in southern Africa to diplomatic lobbying of the United Nations.

"We thought to commemorate Mandela's centenary there should be an exhibition in London."

In 2008 The Duke of Sussex visited the cell where Mr Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 18 years and in 2015, he met Mandela's widow Graça .

My view: I agree with Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela that Prince Harry is a shining example for the youth of today', for his support for 'justice and fairness', but to say that Meghan Markle is a 'shining example to the youths of today', is just taking it too far, and she's not any more. Meghan used to be when she was 11-years-old, after she wrote her letter to protest about the infamous advert, that showed women as belonging to the kitchen. Meghan has changed since then, she has even snubbed herself, that 11-year-old Meghan that made her the woman she is today, she's selfish, greedy, self-absorbed, 'strategic and calculated.' If Meghan can find time to visit the exhibition of the revered Nelson Mandela and talked to his grand-daughter, so why can't she visit her own father or even talk to him since his paid ITV interview, or is it because her father isn't perfect, like the late Pa Mandela, but even the late Nelson Mandela would say nobody is perfect and he'd surely advise Meghan to find a space in her heart and soul to forgive her father and siblings and he would have advised her to invite her African -American side of her mother's family to her Hollywood A-list studded wedding. Nelson Mandela was a global icon of peace and tolerance, and leaves behind a true legacy of love. Nelson Mandela said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world," very true, and so true that, Meghan's father Thomas Markle paid her expensive private school fees so his daughter can achieve high goals in life, but now Meghan is snubbing the very man that gave her that stepping stone to a good life, and it's a stepping stone that millions of children from poor homes wants but unforgtunately they can't have it, they are the same children Meghan Markle meet and greet in the Western world and travel to Africa to meet, greet, hug and have photo opportunity with. I wonder why Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela, didn't ask Meghan Markle why she's not at peace with her father and siblings, and why she did not invite the African-American side of her family to her wedding? Meghan will look credible the minute she starts addressing her family's problem and make peace with them, before she goes out to hug, meet and greet and force her fake smile. Meghan please go and visit your father who is still alive, as he's more important than an art work, he paid your school fees so you can now be famous enough to visit a museum, show some love to him. I don't get that £623.45 sleeveless trench-coat dress, and charity begins at home, you don't ignore and snub your father when he's selling stories just to survive.
