“For all their differences, the two are still totally bonded on preserving their mother’s legacy,” the source tells Us, noting that William, 38, and Harry, 36, will put on a united front in public at the July 1, 2021, event no matter what. “It’s a real shame that they’re on such bad terms going into this because it’s going to be very emotional.”
The princes initially commissioned the Diana statue in 2017 “to mark the twentieth anniversary of her death and recognize her positive impact in the U.K. and around the world.” After plans were delayed, William and Harry released a rare joint statement in August 2020 to provide an update on the tribute to Diana, who died in 1997 at the age of 36.
“The statue will be installed in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace on 1st July 2021, marking The Princess’s 60th birthday,” William and Harry said on August 28, 2020. “The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy.”
