Last month it was announced that a statue of the late Princess of Wales will be erected on the grounds of Kensington Palace this year at the request of her sons. William and Harry said in a statement: "It has been 20 years since our mother's death and the time is right to recognize her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue." They continued, "Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy."


In an exclusive interview withHELLO! last May, Prince Harry said he and his brother were determined tocreate a "permanent memorial" to their mother. He said, "We wantto make sure that there's something that she's remembered by and there'scertainly not enough on the right scale in London or anywhere in the UK thatshe's remembered for. And I think myself, William and a few other people, weall agree on that."

The 32-year-old Prince added, "Something needs to be put in stone or in place as a memory.

Lots of people still talk about her. Every single day we still think about her,so it would be very fitting on the 20th anniversary to have something that isgoing to last forever and is actually a proper recognition of what she did whenshe was alive."
