The former Princess of Wales, Princess Diana is set to be honored with a statue in Kensington Palace.

Her sons Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry feel this is an action and gesture long overdue in order to memorialize the legacy and influences of their mother in history. The Princes have assembled a private committee to help raise funds to sponsor the sculpting of the statue.

According to a statement released on the 28th of January, the statue is set to be placed in the public gardens in Kensington Palace after definite decisions on the details of the design of the statue and the sculptor are being made. These decisions will be made by the Princes in association with the Historic Royal Palaces.

In the press release the Princes stated that “It has been twenty years since our mother’s death and the time is right to recognize her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue”

“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”

The statue is set to be unveiled sometime later in 2017.

    20yrs already???? Wow!!! I remember watching her burial procession and all on TV. I cried like no man’s business. She’s my favourite princess of all times. I looked forward to her pics in Hello and OK magazines, would cut and paste on my wall. I so much loved her I copied one of the styles of her skirt suit (of course the tailor did a rubbish job). She will always be loved. Sleep well, Diana, Princess of Wales
