‘I loved her!’ Princess Diana statue gains royal fans’ approval ahead of public opening


PRINCESS DIANA’s statue outside Kensington Palace has gained the approval of royal fans as the venue prepares to open to the public on the anniversary of her death.

The statue, unveiled last month by Prince William and Prince Harry, will be open to the public on Tuesday, marking the anniversary of Diana’s death. Cradle Walk surrounding Sunken Garden is currently only open to the public only from Wednesday to Sunday.

One Twitter user wrote: “I loved her, she was a complete breath of fresh air and loveliness in the Royal Family …the first royal I ever saw cuddling and hugging children.”

Another wrote: “Love her and this touching memorial to her”

One other user encouraged royal fans to go and visit the statue at Kensington Palace.

They said: “To all you people that took Princess Diana to one’s heart.

“This is the perfect opportunity to pay one’s love for her by visiting the statue.”

In a statement, a spokesman for the Historic Royal Palaces said: “We acknowledge that there will be interest in viewing the statue on that day.”

“So we will be providing access to the Cradle Walk which is essentially the beautiful walkway around the Sunken Garden.

“We will be opening that up, freely available, for passers-by or anybody who wants to stop and take a moment on that Tuesday, specially for the anniversary.”

The statue of Princess Diana was unveiled in July on what would have been her 60th birthday.

The statue shows The Princess of Wales alongside three children.

The brothers released a joint statement when the statue was unveiled back in July.

“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.

“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.”
