'PR catastrophe!' Meghan suffers backlash as Nelson Mandela's grandson dismantles Duchess


This came after Meghan suggested her marriage to Prince Harry sparked scenes of joy in South Africa, similar to the 1990 release of anti-apartheid campaigner Nelson Mandela from prison. In her most recent interview, Meghan recounted a trip to the 2019 London premiere of the live-action version of The Lion King. She said: “I just had Archie.

“It was such a cruel chapter.

“I was scared to go out.”

She said a cast member from South Africa pulled her aside at the premiere.

Speaking to The Cut magazine, she explained: “He looked at me, and he’s just like light.

“He said, ‘I just need you to know: When you married into this family, we rejoiced in the streets the same we did when Mandela was freed from prison.'”

But Nelson Mandela’s grandson, Zwelivelile ‘Mandla’ Mandela, questioned the remarks.

Speaking to the MailOnline, he said: “It can never be compared to the celebration of someone’s wedding.

“Madiba’s celebration was based on overcoming 350 years of colonialism with 60 years of a brutal apartheid regime in South Africa.

Meghan’s interview with The Cut also saw the Duchess discuss her position as a “real life Princess”.

She said: “It’s important to be thoughtful about it because — even with the Oprah interview, I was conscious of the fact that there are little girls that I meet and they’re just like, ‘Oh my God, it’s a real-life princess.'”

Speaking about the young girls who admire her, the Duchess added: “I just look at all of them and think, you have the power within you to create a life greater than any fairy tale you’ve ever read.

“I don’t mean that in terms of ‘You could marry a prince one day.’

“I mean you can find love. You can find happiness.

“You can be up against what could feel like the greatest obstacle and then you can find happiness again.”

Interviewer Allison P. Davis said that Meghan’s “ambitions for herself (and the little girls who look up to her) are more than to marry into a position.”
