“Diana, Princess of Wales” can be read at the base of the statue, which includes the late princess with her arms on the shoulders of a young boy and girl with a statue of another child in the background.
The unveiling of the memorial took place on what would’ve been their mother’s 60th birthday. Princess Diana died in 1997 in a car crash at just 36-years-old.
