Ndebele King Makhosoke Mabena II has given up on the single life. Mabena married the niece of Lesotho king Letsie the third.

Lesotho Princess Sekhothali Seeiso arrived at the church in a grey Rolls-Royce convertible and she looked stunning in a purple wedding dress with gold details in the bodice and skirt. She paired the unique wedding gown with a matching purple veil.
Her bridesmaids showed up in purple dresses with traditional prints and ruffle details on the shoulders.
IOL reported the wedding party was transported to the reception in a large convoy of vehicles and there were men on horseback draped in blue traditional Basotho wool blankets.
