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.

On Twitter, royal fans are thrilled at the prospect of paying their respects at the statue.

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.
