In honor of Princess Diana's love of charity, Kensington Palace recently unveiled a statue of the late royal, which highlighted her connection with children.

At the unveiling ceremony for Diana's statue on July 1, the day she would have turned 60, her sons Prince Harry and Prince William reunited.

Their late mother was represented by a sculpture with her arms around a boy and a girl with a third child in the background. Harry and William each pulled off a piece of green cloth in order to reveal the sculpture.



The inclusion of children was meant to pay homage to Diana's remarkable ability to bond with people, especially young ones, as reported by PEOPLE.

Diana was heavily involved in a number of charities serving children, such as children's hospitals and homeless youth programs. Over 100 charities were under her patronage.

The Diana Award charity, which was established in her honor, also helps inspire young people to make positive changes in their lives.



As an ambassador of humanitarian causes, the princess had developed confidence, according to Kensington Palace, and the statue seeks to illustrate her dignity and compassion.

Meanwhile, Harry and William commissioned the statue in 2017 in memory of their mother on the twentieth anniversary of her death.

In addition to honoring her positive impact in the United Kingdom and worldwide, the royal siblings wanted future generations to appreciate the significance of her role in history.
