Changes that the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex would have made in the design of a statue of Princess Diana are delaying completion and exhibiting in Kensington Gardens.
Two years ago the brothers revealed that they had ordered the statue of their mother for the public part of their then palace, to commemorate 20 years since her death in Paris in 1997.
Yesterday, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told The Mail on Sunday: & # 39; This is not a short-term project, this is a statue that will last forever.
& # 39; The point is that this lasting monument is absolutely right. & # 39;

The sculptor of the statue, Ian Rank-Broadley, is particularly appreciated for his image of the queen, who has appeared on all coins in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth since 1998. He also designed a gold coin to mark the Queen's diamond anniversary in 2012.
Princess Diana died at the age of 36 when the car she was traveling with crashed into a Paris tunnel on August 31, 1997.
When the project was announced in 2017, William and Harry said: & It is 20 years since our mother died and it is good to recognize her positive impact in the UK and the rest of the world with a permanent image. & # 39;
The best-known work of Rank-Broadley is his effigy of the monarch, who has stood on all coins in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth since 1998
