Prince Harry and Prince William: they will meet again in July for a symbolic occasion

On the occasion of what would have been Lady Diana’s sixtieth birthday, Princes Harry and William have commissioned a statue of their mother. If the two brothers have not seen each other for a year, it has been confirmed that they will attend the unveiling of the statue together in the garden of Kensington Palace on July 1, 2021. While no image of the latter is has been unveiled for the time being, the garden planners said: “I am convinced that even if a simple bronze block of the dimensions indicated were erected, it still would not interfere with the view of the palace. I do not think it was or our role to get involved in artistic design. “

Inspector of the ancient monuments of historic England, Jane Siddell shared: “The proposed art installation is located in the Sunken Garden, an element of the early 20th century gardens located a little away from the east facade of the palace. The location has been carefully chosen, the statue being off-center on one of the garden paths, near an opening in the hedges. It will be visible to the public looking at the garden, but the statue will not prevent the view on or from the palace due to its slightly recessed and protected position. ” Jane Siddell added: “There is a tradition of installing statues in Kensington Gardens and around Kensington Palace, for example the statue of King William III south of the palace and Queen Victoria near the Round Pond. , and the proposed installation follows this tradition. “

“Our mother touched so many lives”

Last August, it was in a joint statement that Princes Harry and William indicated that they “hope that the statute will help those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on the life and legacy of their mother.” In 2017, the husbands of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton had already revealed: “It has been 20 years since the death of our mother and the time has come to recognize its positive impact in the UK and the world with a permanent statue. Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help everyone who visits Kensington Palace reflect on her life and legacy. “
