Royal reunion: Harry and William unveil statue of Diana on her 60th birthday

Princess Diana would have been 60 today

Prince William and Prince Harry have reunited for a very touching occasion. This afternoon, the brothers walked side by side through the grounds of Kensington Palace to unveil a very special statue of their mother, Princess Diana.

The brothers have not seen one another since Prince Philip's funeral in April.

They unveiled a beautiful statue of Diana, which was created by Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams.

In honour of what would have been their mum's 60th birthday, the brothers issued a joint statement.

"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," they shared.

The royals added: "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."

Prince William and Harry were only 15 and 12-years-old when their mother was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris. The brothers have often honoured their mother and ensured her memory is kept alive.

Prince Harry, who recently welcomed his second child with Meghan Markle, honoured his mum by naming his daughter Lilibet Diana.

Prince William's daughter Charlotte also has 'Diana' in her full name.

It has been reported that the brothers are barely on speaking terms, but they decided to put their differences aside to pay tribute to their late mother.

Members of Diana's also attended the statue unveiling this afternoon, including Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Charles Spencer.
