The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met friends and family of the anti-apartheid campaigner who died in 2013, including his grand-daughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela.

Dlamini-Mandela said after the meeting that the couple was a shining example for today's youth as they work for fairness and justice in the world.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out together in London on Tuesday, marking their first public appearance since Markle's father claimed his daughter looked "terrified" to be a royal.

The exhibit to honour the late freedom fighter and South African president displayed photographs, film, and artifacts relating to his life.

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

Among the guests was a former prison inmate of Mandela, and his granddaughter Zamaswazi Dlamini-Mandela.

Thomas - who hasn't spoken to his daughter since her wedding to Prince Harry - has previously revealed this is the longest he has gone without speaking to Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex.

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.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly not had any contact with the retired lighting director since his bombshell interview with Good Morning Britain. The information on display related to his character, his life as a comrade and leader, his time as a prisoner, followed by his achievements as a statesman and negotiator. Mandela served as South Africa's president for one term and forged a democracy which moved on from events of the past. The project was a collaboration between the Apartheid Museum in South Africa, the British Anti-Apartheid Movement Archives and the Southbank Centre.
