I always found the memorials to be in bad taste but it was Fayed's store so he could have put anything in there. I wouldn't buy too many things from Harrods because of the price range. Its awfully expensive ,an Armani t-shirt costs more than 50 pounds.

Cool

I'm glad that the new owners are removing that shrine. The minute Mr. al-Fayed's limo leaves, I'd be taking it down. It was incredibly tacky. A small brass commemoration memorial with the couple's pictures above in a discreet area would have been okay and not that abomination.

Mr al-Fayed's tastes are over the top with the D&D sculpture. To me it showed a man who wanted to displayed a sculpture to remind everyone of the deaths and not to forget. Only he does realize the artwork was incredibly bad taste and drew customers away.

Agreed Katrinna.

That statue took the cake for me, with Diana and Dodi reaching out to the bird and the words innocent victims inscribed on the bottom. He tried to portay Dodi as the love of her life which is far from the truth. I'm happy they're taking it down as well

What an immature act. The man is to be pitied as he's so delusional.

I find it hard to believe that his business tripled after the warrants were removed. Note to M al F: one doesn't increase one's chances of obtaining citizenship by publicly dissing the Head of State and her family.

The very day of Diana's death, live on tv, his agent spoke about his desired citizenship... I was really shocked !

Oh well, there will be a lot of us glad to see the "shrine" to Dodi and Diana be removed from Harrods. I hope the new owners also remove the ghastly statue of Al Fayed himself in the menswear department on the ground floor.

I don't think the statue was very tasteful at all, quite tacky. Although Fayed has been ungracious through the whole thing, I think he is still suffering from the loss of his only son and perhaps unspoken guilt for pressing the romance that resulted in the tragegy.

Does anyone know if the "tributes" have been removed from Harrods? I was wondering if the new owners had removed them but haven't found anything saying for sure if it's been done or not.
