PAYING TRIBUTE: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at the Southbank Centre Tuesday afternoon for the opening day of a major exhibition examining the life of Nelson Mandela that marks the centenary of the anti-apartheid leader.
Markle wore a sleeveless blush pink trench coat by Canadian label Nonie. She completed her summer outfit with a matching Mulberry clutch and nude heels and her signature messy bun.
The exhibition will highlight the life and legacy of the activist, tracing Mandela’s career from freedom fighter to becoming South Africa’s first democratically elected president. It is explored through six themes: Character, comrade, leader, prisoner, negotiator and statesman and the exhibition will run until August 19.
