Queen Mantfombi MaDlamini Zulu held the status of "Great Wife" since her marriage to the king in 1977.

Her appointment has fuelled speculation that one of her sons will become king of the 11 million-strong Zulu nation.

Zwelithini, 72, had diabetes and died in hospital of Covid-related complications on 12 March.
