Princess Diana to receive a statue at Kensington Palace 20 years after her death

Princes William and Harry have announced plans for a new permanent memorial to their mother, Princess Diana, to be built twenty years after her death.

It is being further revealed that the statue is to be built at Kensington Palace where the princes were raised, so both William and Harry can see the new memorial from their apartments.

The princess have already appointed a star-studded committee to oversee the project and choose a sculptor, as well as to raise funds for the project. Chairing the committee is former Private Secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, who is also Prince George’s godfather.

Diana’s elder sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, will also be on the committee panel. The sculpture is hoped to be in place by the end of the year, as well as a memorial garden, which work has already started on.

“It has been 20 years since our mother’s death and the time is right to recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue,” the Princes said in a statement.

“Our mother touched so many lives,” the statement continued. “We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and legacy.”

During a visit with The Running Charity in London on Thursday, Prince Harry sweetly stopped to admire a photo of his late mother.
Diana’s sons have definitely kept their mother in their thoughts.
