Royal brothers Prince William and Prince Harry have met for the second time in as many days to unveil a second statue of their mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
At a low-key ceremony at Kensington Palace in London yesterday the brothers revealed the official memorial to their mother, a statue (pictured below) by noted British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
But I can report exclusively that this morning the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex met again in an even more private ceremony to dedicate a second statue to the beloved “People’s Princess”.
My royal sources tell me that both young men regard the second statue as the “real” memorial to their late and beloved mother.
“The young Princes knew that the official memorial statue unveiled yesterday should meet public expectations of presenting Diana as she was at the time of her death,” one Buckingham Palace insider told me.
“They readily commissioned Mr Rank-Broadley to undertake the ‘official’ statue on the understand that he would also create a second statue depicting Diana as she would be today at 60.”
My sources tell me that both Princes are very happy with the arrangement which will give visitors to Kensington palace a chance to see Diana as she was and as she would have been.
Both memorials have been installed in Kensington Palace’s sunken garden which, I understand, was not sunken prior to the installation of the second statue.
