On July 1, a monument to Princess Diana was unveiled in the garden of Kensington Palace – on this day she would have turned 60. The ceremony was attended by members of the British royal family.
The veil was removed from the statue by Princess Diana’s sons, Princes William and Harry. The latter came to Britain especially for the ceremony, although he now lives with his family in the United States.
The brothers expressed the hope that the monument will be a symbol of their mother’s life and legacy and thanked everyone who supports her memory. In addition, Lady Diana’s two sisters and her brother attended the event.
The sculpture depicts Diana with her two children, a symbol of the charitable work she did. William and Harry noted that the garden at Kensington Palace was one of the princess’ favorite places when she lived there.
Today, on what would have been our Mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better. pic.twitter.com/jsZXyUsG7q
