Princess Diana Statue Unveiling: Everything to Know So Far

Princess Diana was a one-of-a-kind member of the British royal family, and since her August 1997 death, Prince William and Prince Harry have worked hard to preserve her legacy. In January 2017, the brothers announced their plans to commission a statue in her honor. “It has been twenty years since our mother’s death and the time is right to recognize her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue,” William, now 38, and Harry, now 36, said in a joint statement at the time. “Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy.” The project was initially slated to be unveiled later that year, but plans changed, and in August 2020, a new date was confirmed. “The statue will be i...

The story behind Princess Diana's wedding veil

We know a lot about Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress (and for those who fancy another peek, it’s going on display at an exhibition at Kensington Palace soon), but not so much about Princess Diana’s wedding veil. In fact, it was shrouded in secrecy until the big day, with only one person being let in on the secret, other than designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel of course. It was created by the embroiderers at S. Lock (now Hand & Lock) and took over two weeks to make. Hand & Lock in-house fashion historian Robert McCaffrey, said, ‘the truth of the project was only known by one embroiderer, Peggy Umpleby. At first she worked on the veil at home at night sometimes working until five in the morning before bringing it back on the tube.’ ‘Prog...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding anniversary is coming up, just after Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated theirs.

As you’ll remember, it features a large central diamond, flanked on either side by diamonds from his late mother Princess Diana’s collection. Harry told the BBC at the time, ‘The ring is obviously yellow gold because that’s Meghan’s favourite and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewellery collection, to make sure that she’s with us on this crazy journey together.’ The ring has since been upgraded to a diamond eternity band, to match the Duchess’ ot...
