It is not yet known what the prince’s speech will be about. Nelson Mandela had met the royal family on several occasions before his death in 2013. And Harry himself had visited Graca Machel, Mandela’s widow, in South Africa in 2019.

“Great meeting”

Meghan Markle will accompany her husband on this trip. The couple went together to the United Nations headquarters last September. They had then met Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the American ambassador to the United Nations.

“Wonderful meeting with Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Important discussion on Covid, racial justice and raising awareness of mental health issues”, she greeted on Twitter.
