Nelson Mandela Memorial

Tens of thousands of South Africans and nearly 100 of world leaders, among them Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri, have attended a memorial service for the late President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg today. At one point of the event the Grand Duke was seated next to Belgian King Philippe but could also be seen sitting next to Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark at another. South Africa's first black president will be laid to rest in a state funeral in Qunu, the village in Eastern Cape where he was born, on Sunday. No word yet whether the Grand Duke will also be in attendance for the funeral.
