Princess Diana Statue At Kensington Palace Announced By Prince William, Harry
Kensington Palace revealed in a press release, “A statue of Diana, Princess of Wales will be erected on the grounds of Kensington Palace at the request of her sons, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.” It’s said, “The Princes have convened a committee to commission and privately raise funds for the creation of the statue. The committee will advise on the selection of the sculptor and will work with Historic Royal Palaces on the statue’s installation in the public gardens at Kensington Palace.”
The brothers say in a joint statement, “It has been twenty years since our mother’s death and the time is right to recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue. Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy.”
The Princes hope the construction and unveiling will take place before the end of 2017. This August will mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death in a fatal car crash. Both brothers, her only children, have been increasingly vocal in the past few months about the impact her passing had on them.
