Nelson Mandela death: Queen leads tributes
The Queen has led the UK in sending her “sincere condolences” to the family of Nelson Mandela and to the people of South Africa.
The Queen said the former South African president “worked tirelessly” for the good of his country, adding that his legacy is “the peaceful South Africa we see today”. A statement from Buckingham Palace said: “Her Majesty remembers with great warmth her meetings with Mr Mandela”.
”He was everything you’ve ever heard and more – humble and unscathed by bitterness. One of the great honors of my life was to be invited to Nelson Mandela’s home, spend private time and get to know him”
”I will never forget my friend Madiba.”
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela. You will be missed.
“He transcended race and class in his personal actions, through his warmth and through his willingness to listen and to empathize with others. He taught us that to respect those with whom we are politically or socially or culturally at odds is not a sign of weakness, but a mark of self-respect.”
“honored and humbled to call Nelson Mandela a friend of our entire family”
“Mandela played with the highest stakes. He put his family, his country, his time, his life on the line, and he won most of these contests. Stubborn til the end for all the right reasons, it felt like he very nearly outstared his maker. Today, finally, he blinked. And some of us cry, knowing our eyes were opened to so much because of him.”
“You will always be in my heart Mr. Mandela.”

I’m hearing about Nelson Mandela’s death while on African soil in Oran, Algeria. Sending prayers to Mandela’s family.
Mandela stood for justice and truth!! Today the world lost a beautiful soul, fighter and true KING!!
“What an honor it was to step into the shoes of Nelson Mandela and portray a man who defied odds, broke down barriers, and championed human rights before the eyes of the world. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
“He was the embodiment of the spirit of ‘Ubuntu,’ which is the belief that the collective is always more important than the individual. As citizens of the world we should all aspire to that ideal, and all that Nelson Mandela’s life represented, taking comfort in the knowledge that in so doing we will always stand in the long shadow of his greatness.”
Mandela kept the country together at a time when it very well could have spun into civil war.
RIP NELSON MANDELA… It will take a world of people to grab the baton that you ran with to continue your tradition… May we all grab hold
