From the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview to Netflix’s Harry & Meghan and Spare. The two have slowly and steadily let out the dirty secrets of the British royal family. Most of which included the hardships divorcee and the then-actress had to face as a woman of color. Following a plethora of such impactful projects and even paving a path toward becoming a billionaire, they signed yet another project with Netflix, Live to Lead.

Ndileka Mandela finally breaks her silence about the previous accusations against Harry and Meghan
Penning her words for Independent, the granddaughter of Nelson Mandela finally clarified the fuss going on about how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex used the late President’s name to fulfill their personal gains. She exclusively wrote that although she does not like her grandfather’s name used for such purposes, it “shocked” her to see people accusing her. Mandela went on to say that she never slammed the two for “profiteering” on Nelson Mandela’s name.
"It is true that I feel terribly disappointed whenever the Mandela name or face is used for commercial purposes without any benefit to the vision he stood for", writes Ndileka Mandela, granddaughter of Nelson Mandela https://t.co/8fsSb4Q6B0 #NelsonMandela

Instead, the media outlets misquoted her, causing a “global news coverage that weaponized my (Ndileka Mandela’s) name” and her anti-apartheid grandfather’s name. Further setting everything straight, she laid all the cards on the table. Ndileka Mandela finds it rather ironic that those who accused her of calling out the royal couple are the ones using Nelson Mandela’s name to accuse the woman of color.
