This year, the Nelson Mandela Foundation had invited former US President Barack Obama to deliver the keynote address for the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela (18 July 1918 - 5 December 2013).

Before an audience of 10,000 people, Barack Obama gave a message of tolerance and democracy.

On this occasion, H.S.H. Princess Charlène met with Barack Obama, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Zulu King Zwelithini, along with many of the numerous personalities celebrating this event.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation perpetuates its founder’s heritage to help improve living conditions for the most underprivileged people in South Africa and the world over.

On Wednesday 18 July, H.S.H. the Princess went to Nelson Mandela Foundation headquarters for a presentation of the Foundation’s programmes along with new projects.
She was accompanied by renowned Human Rights champion Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Richard Branson.
