Prince Harry and David Cameron both attended a memorial service to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela, which took place at Westminster Abbey in London on Monday.
According to the BBC, the service was attended by nearly 2,000 people including the deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and South Africa’s deputy president, Kgalema Motlanthe.
Earlier, the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, announced a memorial stone to honour Mr Mandela would be placed in the abbey.
Speaking at the memorial service, Archbishop Tutu told the congregation there was worldwide veneration of Mr Mandela following his death because he had made everyone believe in peace.
“He made us believe that all, each one of us, we are made of goodness,” he said.
“We are made for caring, we are made for loving, we are made for compassion, we are made for laughter, for peace.”
Archbishop Tutu thanked those who supported the anti-apartheid movement.
He said Mr Mandela had been “appalled” by the apartheid system that spawned signs in South Africa reading: “Drive carefully – natives cross here.”
“Without the anti-apartheid movement, without you extraordinary human beings, Mandela could so easily have died in prison,” Archbishop Tutu said.
“Wonderfully, exhilaratingly, the entire world glued to its TV sets watched as this man emerged from 27 years of incarceration.”
The service was attended by royalty, politicians and celebrities, including actor Idris Elba who starred as Mr Mandela in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Mr Cameron attended the service with Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Labour leader Ed Miliband.
Others present included former UK prime ministers Sir John Major and Gordon Brown, Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow and members of the cabinet including Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and the leader of the Catholic Church in England and Wales, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, were also present.
Earlier, setting out plans for the memorial stone, Dr Hall described Mr Mandela as “one of the most remarkable world leaders of the last century”.
He said: “His remarkable constancy under suffering stand as an example to everyone.
“In addition, his capacity for forgiveness and his generosity of spirit show what humanity at its best can achieve.
“His memorial in Westminster Abbey, justified in itself, standing amongst memorials to many of the greatest men and women of the world, not all of them British, will also prove to be a focus of contemplation and prayer for the gift of forgiveness and reconciliation in many communities and places in our troubled world.”
Mr Mandela visited the abbey in July 1996 when, during a state visit, he laid a wreath at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.
