Statue of Diana To Be Erected At Kensington Palace

  January 28, 2017 at 8:48 pm by

Kensington Palace has announced that a statue of the late Diana, Princess of Wales is to be erected in the public gardens of the Palace, at the behest of her two sons, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

“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 two Princes said in a statement.

A committee has been selected to privately raise funds and commission a sculptor and design for the statue, in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces on its placement with the grounds. Heading the committee is Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, the former private secretary of the Princes, while Diana’s sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and her friend Julia Samuel sit on the committee.

It is hoped the statue will be completed for an unveiling by the end of 2017.

This August will mark twenty years since the Princess’s death in a Paris car accident.

    I would love to see a statue of her greeting her little boys after being away. She knelt down with her arms opened wide to take them both in.

    Overdue. I am so happy to hear the Princes talking and sharing so freely about their mum, a subject that which too often, is met with silence. They have become wonderful people, humanitarians in following the example of the late Princess Diana. Well done!

    Princess Diana really showed her children what life was like outside of castles and royalty. That is so so wonderful for her children do this for all to see and show how much she meant to us all. She raised these two boys to become men. For them, To show how much everyone means to them and the world. With all of their work they do for not just their country but for other countries. I want to thank you two and Princess Kate for that work. Stay beautiful people, as you are.
