Prince William and Prince Harry will reunite to unveil a statue of their late mother, Princesse Diana, at the Sunken Garden in Kensington Palace jeudi.

The statue’s reveal on 1 July comes on what would have been the Princess of Wales’ 60th birthday. It has been erected permanently in the newly-redesigned Sunken Garden, which has been filled with more than 4,000 flowers and offers a “calmer and more reflective setting” for the permanent tribute to the princess.

Kensington Palace has confirmed the royal brothers and members of the Spencer family, thought to be her siblings, will attend the unveiling, along with the statue committee and others involved in the process.

The statue was created by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, who has a long track record of creating images of the royal family, and the garden was redesigned by Pip Morrison.

Diana’s key motherhood moments

Princess Diana was known for regularly breaking tradition when it came to parenting.

She took Prince William with her on her first overseas tour in 1983, despite him being only nine months old at the time.

She also brought both William and Harry with her on a 17-day tour of Italy in 1985, when harry was just seven months old.

William also became the first royal not to receive any homeschooling, as he and Harry both attended the Wetherby School in Notting Hill from the age of five.

Diana was also known to take part in the boys’ sports days being photographed on number of occasions.
