When will the Princess Diana memorial statue be unveiled?

Tributes will be paid to Princess Diana next month on July 1 – what would have been her 60th birthday.

It was commissioned by her sons in 2017 to “recognise her positive impact in the United Kingdom and around the world.”

The coronavirus pandemic meant the event was delayed – but has fallen nicely on the Princess’s birthday.

Where will the statue be placed?

It will be unveiled on the grounds of Kensington Palace.

It will be installed at the Sunken Gardens, which was believed to be Diana’s favourite spot on the Kensington Palace grounds.

“Our mother touched so many lives,” the princes said in a statement, per the BBC.

“We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy.”

Will Princes Harry and William attend the unveiling?

William and Harry are said to have called a truce for the unveiling of the statue as they will both be present.

The feuding brothers are communicating by “minimal” texts amid their bitter fallout.

But they are determined to show the utmost respect by pledging a truce on what would have been the late Princess’s 60th birthday.

The Princes will leave Kensington Palace together, walk to the statue then deliver their own speeches.

Sadly, sources say there has been no reconciliation since Harry and wife Meghan trashed the Royal Family in their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview in March. In fact, they are further apart than ever.

This will be the first time since Prince Charles’ funeral.

Can I go and see the statue?

In a statement, the princes said: “”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.”
