Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received criticism from Nelson Mandela's granddaughter after the release of their second documentary, Live to Lead.

Nelson Mandela's Granddaughter Reacts To Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Second Documentary

Ndileka Mandela, a social activist and writer, didn't hide her disapproval of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's second documentary on Netflix titled Live to Lead. She wondered why Prince Harry and Markle got the late South African leader involved in their show.

Ndileka said she was "deeply upset" for using her granddad's legacy to draw views and fund the Sussexes' life in the United States.

In the trailer, Prince Harry said that the show was inspired by Nelson Mandela. The politician's 57-year-old granddaughter said Prince Harry "needs to be authentic and stick to his own story" instead of using her late grandfather.

"I don't believe he nor Meghan have ever properly met granddad, maybe when Harry was young at Buckingham Palace, but they are using his quotations in the documentary to draw in people and make millions without the Mandela family benefiting," Ndileka said.

"I know the Nelson Mandela Foundation has supported the initiative but people have stolen grandfather’s quotes for years and have used his legacy because they know his name sells – Harry and Meghan are no different from them."

"Grandad rebelled against an arranged marriage to find his own path in life," she explained. "But it comes at a price, you have to then fund your own life."

"I’ve made peace with people using granddad’s name but it’s still deeply upsetting and tedious every time it happens."
