Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition today at Southbank Centre in London to commemorate what would be Mandela’s 100th birthday (July 18). While at the exhibit, Harry and Meghan met with his granddaughter Zamaswazi Dlamani-Mandela.
They also spoke with Mandela’s good friend Andrew Mlangeni.

This is the first time that the Mandela exhibit has been shown in the UK, remembering the life and work of Mandela through six themes: character, comrade, leader, prisoner, negotiator, and statesman. The Robben Island Bible is among the artifacts on display. It’s the ‘bible’ that Mandela kept with him to hide the Complete Works of Shakespeare that he would read for inspiration and hope during his imprisonment.
The exhibition is free and runs until August 19th, which will be three months since Harry married Meghan. In that time, with the exception of their honeymoon, which wasn’t all that long, we’ve seen a lot of them. We’ve seen them almost every week. They said when they got engaged that they were looking forward to getting out there as a team. Meghan said that she wanted to get to work. And, so far, they have kept up with those schedule expectations, consistent with how active Harry was before the engagement. Which is one of the reasons he’s been considered the most popular royal over the last few years. I wonder what the results of the poll will be the next time they do it, now that Harry and Meghan are married.
As for their schedule, their communications team said even before the wedding that “You'll be pleased to know they're planning a lot of work to happen in the second part of the year, which is going to be incredibly busy”. So, if that is still the case, it doesn’t look like they’re about to slow down – even if her family keeps up with their f-cksh-t.
