Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have visited an exhibition in London charting the life of Nelson Mandela.

Peter Hain, a former anti-apartheid activist and president of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition, said it was “very appropriate” for the royal couple to visit because Harry is doing good work in south Africa, and Meghan has said that Mandela is one of her heroes.

Harry is visited sites associated with Mandela, including his Robben Island prison cell, and a former Mandela aide has said that Queen Elizabeth II enjoyed a solid friendship with the South African leader.

The exhibition, curated by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, is opening Tuesday in London’s Southbank Center.
