Princess Diana is not just a name, it’s an emotion. Although she has left us after the tragic car accident of 1997, her love and warmth still stay fresh in our hearts. 

On July 1st, she would have turned 60. So, for her birthday, her sons Prince William and Prince Harry came together to honor her by unveiling her statue. 

A statue of Princess Diana, the design of which was kept a secret. It was unveiled in an event held on what would have been her 60th birthday

Two of her sons came together to pay tribute to their late mother and the Princess of Wales

‘Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.’ – shared The Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex in a joint statement. ‘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.’

Although the event was private, hundreds of people gathered outside the gardens for the unveiling of the statue
