The fact that Diana has a fountain is good enough imo. All it needs is some nice touches.

Well, there's this one:

which I find to be incredibly tacky.

If there were public pressure and interest, I'm sure a statue could be erected in her memory. Statues in Britain aren't limited to kings and queens after all.

But there would probably have to be a fundraising campaign, and there would be discussion as to whether Diana would prefer a statue in her honor versus a charitable donation somewhere. But like I said, I think the time has passed. Any statue would have been erected long before the Queen Mother's.

Yes, very tacky. Very much so. I was thinking more of public, official statues.

I don't believe there is the interest, even if a campaign was started.

I agree, Skydragon. There's just not an impetus for it now. The campaign should have been started no later than 2000. People have other concerns now (not that I'm against the idea, personally). And I don't see William or Harry being interested in doing this particular thing in the future...

Princess Diana Memorials

I'd love to start a thread about Princess Diana memorials around the world--the fountain in Hyde park for example. There must be more out there and I'd love hear about the best ones and how they pay tribute to her.

I haven't visited the fountain but I'd like to and am impressed by what I've seen of it.

I'm not sure about tacky but it's certainly eye-catching.

A rose garden was built in tribute to Diana on the 10th anniversary of her death in China.
