On the day the Princess of Wales turned 60, her sons unveiled the statue in the gardens of Kensington Palace, the estate where Diana lived for many years and now occupied by William and Kate.
Artist Ian Rank-Broadly has the honor of creating the special statue of the beloved princess. The creation of the image was not without a struggle, however. Not only should the statue have been finished sooner – the announcement was already made in 2017 – William and Harry also reportedly did not always agree on the design. The men did come to an agreement about this design:
William and Harry chose a special place for the life-size statue of their mother with two children. It is in Sunken Gardens: Diana’s favorite garden on the London estate.
The brothers are still making themselves heard via social media. “Today, on what would have been our mother’s 60th 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,” Harry wrote. and William.
“Every day we wish she was still with us and we hope that this statue will forever be seen as a symbol of her life and her legacy.”
