Prince William and Prince Harry will be “rehashing” painful memories of their mother Princess Diana when the two brothers reunite to unveil a statue in her honour. A royal commentator questioned whether the Princes would even want to attend such an event, knowing that the ceremony would bring back the trauma of her sudden death. 

Charlene White told Loose Women, “I saw stuff on the weekend about Diana turning 60 and I know that they’re going to unveil something in her honour, but it did make me think – do they even want to do that?”

“As someone who has lost her mum, I’m not sure if I’d want to be rehashing all of that for a big birthday like Diana’s coming up.”

“Everyone talking about conspiracy theories and their memories and all of that stuff.”

“She was their mum, do they want to do it? Probably not, but they have to do it because they’re part of the Royal Family.” 

Princess Diana died at the age of 36 in 1997 after her vehicle crashed in a tunnel in Paris. She and her partner Dodi Fayed were being pursued by paparazzi on mopeds. 

Her sudden death caused widespread mourning, with an estimated 2.5 billion people around the globe watching her funeral. 

Prince Harry has recently spoken about the traumatic impact of losing his mother when he was only 12 years old. 

Her death created a lifelong dislike for the media and the paparazzi and he told Oprah there was “no justice, at all” in what had happened to his mother. 

He also spoke of his frustration at having to share his personal grief with the rest of the world. Both Prince William and Prince Harry walked behind their mother’s coffin from the Mall to Westminster Abbey.

Prince Harry said, “For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses’ hooves going along the Mall.”

“I was showing one tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing. This was my mum – you never even met her.”

He also said that he thought his mother would be incredibly proud of his decision to relocate to California with his family and break away from the Royal Family.

Both William and Harry have worked hard to preserve their mother’s legacy and decided to commission the statue in 2017. 

The statue has been designed by famous British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and will be unveiled at the Sunken Garden at Kensignton Palace. 

Both Princes are expected to give speech to commemorate what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday. 

Relations between William and Harry have been tense since the fallout of Megxit. It will be the first time for the brothers to unite since the funeral of their grandfather Prince Philip.
