See photos of Prince Harry and Prince William during the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue
Prince Harry and Prince William put their troubles aside this afternoon to honor their late mother, Princess Diana, on what would have been her 60th birthday, when her statue was unveiled in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, located in Hyde Park in London. The event was not attended by Prince Charles or Kate Middleton—just Harry, William and Diana’s family. Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, remained in California with their two children Archie and Lili; Meghan just gave birth to Lili on June 4.
Harry and William released a statement together to mark the moment. They said:
“Today, on the occasion of what would have been our mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character, qualities that made her a force for good in the whole world, improving countless lives. Every day we want her to be with us again, and our hope is that this statue will be seen as a symbol of her life and legacy forever. Thank you to Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams for their outstanding work, to the friends and donors who made this happen, and to everyone around the world who keeps our mother’s memory alive.
They were also pictured together unveiling the statue:
Kensington Palace issued a press release about the gathering, calling it a “small family event”. Diana’s siblings Earl Spencer, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes were in attendance along with William and Harry, as well as sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and gardener Pip Morrison.
Some royal reporters on social networks Noted that the event was private and closed to royal rotation (there was minimal press presence there), and that William had agreed to restrict media access at Harry’s request. There has been no public confirmation of this from Kensington Palace, and the UK remains under some lockdown restrictions due to COVID-19. But what the brothers have established today is that Diana’s legacy matters far more than anything else.
