William And Harry Together Again As New Diana Statue Unveiled

The Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex have emotionally reunited to unveil a statue of their mother Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday.

William and Harry were joined by other members of their mother’s family, as well as some of Diana’s closest friends in what was described by a Royal source as “a small event and a very personal moment for the family”.

The new bronze statue shows Diana, Princess of Wales, surrounded by three children and is said to be based on the final period of her life as she gained confidence in her role as an ambassador for humanitarian causes. It also aims to convey her character and compassion.

Beneath the statue is a plinth engraved with The Princess’ name and the date of the unveiling and a paving stone in front is engraved with an extract from the poem The Measure of A Man, which featured in the programme for the 2007 memorial service for The Princess.

“Today, on what would have been our Mother’s 60 birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better,” William and Harry said in a joint statement.

“Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.”
