“When I first looked at the photo, straight away, what jumped out is the joy on my mother’s face. The playfulness – cheekiness, even,” Harry said.

“The pure delight to be in communion with another soul so committed to serving humanity.”

He continued: “[Mandela was] still able to see the goodness in humanity, still buoyant with a beautiful spirit that lifted everyone around him.

“Not because he was blind to the ugliness, the injustices of the world, no. He saw them clearly. He had lived them. But because he knew we could overcome them.”

During his heartwarming keynote speech, Harry also spoke out on the “rolling back of constitutional rights here in the United States” and explained that Roe V Wade was a “global assault on democracy and freedom”.
