See Prince William, Prince Harry Reunite at Princess Diana Statue Unveiling
Prince William and Prince Harry are together again.
On Thursday, the two princes reunited to present a new honorary statue at Kensington Palace of their late mother, Princess Diana, on what would have marked her 60th birthday. The brothers have not attended a public event together since the funeral for their late grandfather, Prince Philip, back in April—partly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and partly due to Prince Harry relocating to California with his family after he and Duchess Meghan stepped down as senior working royals last year. William and Harry first commissioned the statue of Princess Diana to be made back in 2017 to memorialize their mother and mark the 20th anniversary since her death.
“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,” read a statement from both princes.
“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,” they continued. “Thank you to Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams for their outstanding work, to the friends and donors who helped make this happen, and to all those around the world who keep our mother’s memory alive.”

According to an official release from Buckingham Palace, the statue was designed to “reflect the warmth, elegance and energy of Diana, Princess of Wales, in addition to her work and the impact she had on so many people.” The sculpture depicts the late royal surrounded by three children who represent the “universality and generational impact” of her life’s work. The styling of the statue, including the dress worn, was based on the final period of her life, where she “gained confidence in her role as an ambassador for humanitarian causes.”
Prince William and Prince Harry were joined by a small group of attendees for the statue unveiling, including close family of the late Princess of Wales; members of the statue committee; the statue’s sculptor, Ian Rank-Broadley; and garden designer Pip Morrison. Both of William and Harry’s spouses, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, did not attend today’s ceremony. Kate Middleton was expected to have a private viewing of the statue with Prince William and their three children ahead of the ceremony while Meghan Markle is at home in California after recently giving birth to her and Harry’s second child.
