The emotion will undoubtedly be there. On July 1, Prince Harry and Prince William will meet for the unveiling of the statue of Princess Diana. The two brothers will reunite to pay tribute to their mother, Lady Di, who is said to have celebrated her 60th birthday. Several members of the royal family will erect a statue in the gardens of Kensington Palace. A very dear place in the heart of the Princess of Wales, who adored the gardens of the residence when she lived there …
While the event is scheduled in a week, Princes William and Harry have decided to reduce the number of guests, according to information from the Daily Mail, this June 25, 2021. Both have chosen to reduce the number of participants, due to Covid-19, we learn. Basically, the brothers wanted a hundred people to attend the ceremony. Only the pandemic forced Princes William and Harry to change their plans and lower the gauge. “Instead, they will chair a greatly reduced gathering with only a handful of guests – the princes themselves and members of the Spencer family,” it read.
A second ceremony scheduled for September
The originally invited guests have been informed that a new date for a larger ceremony will likely be set in September. No doubt this news must be a great disappointment to many of Princess Diana’s entourage, and fans of the British Royal Family as well. For many, the unveiling of the statue plays a real role in the reconciliation between Princes William and Harry. As the tabloid reports, the two brothers barely speak to each other, since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left royal life to start a new chapter in their life, in California. As a reminder, the project of the statue in honor of Lady Di saw the light of day in 2017. To supervise this project, the two brothers set up a working committee and put their differences aside, until so hoped for July 1, 2021.
