In a statement, Prince William and Prince Harry said: “Today, on what would have been our Mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better.

“Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.

“Thank you to Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams for their outstanding work, to the friends and donors who helped make this happen, and to all those around the world who keep our mother’s memory alive.”

Although the third child is partially hidden by the child on the right, the statue shows Princess Diana in a dress surrounded by three children. Kensington Palace said the design reflects her “warmth, elegance and energy” and the “universality and generational impact” of her work.

The statue also has an engraved extract of the poem,The Measure of A Man etched upon it, which says: “These are the units to measure the worth of this woman as a woman regardless of birth. Not ‘What was her station?’ but ‘Had she a heart? How did she play her God-given part?”
