Nearly 25 years after Diana’s shocking death, the statue William and Harry had commissioned was finally unveiled last month.
After Historic Royal Palaces made special arrangements for visitors to have access to the CradleWalk around the Sunken Garden from 3pm to 5pm today in honor of the anniversary, well-wishers can view the statue at Kensington Palace today (August 31, 2008), after they made arrangements with Historic Royal Palaces.
The area is closed to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays due to the pandemic.
Their animosity dates back to before Harry and Meghan were married. Harry was angry at what he saw as his brother’s “snobbishness” towards Meghan after William asked whether he should hurry into things with the ex Suits star.
In an Oprah interview, the Sussexes accused the royal family and Meghan of racism. They also said that the institution had not helped Meghan with suicidal thoughts.
William was reported to be “furious” at the publication of private family matters.
William, the Duchess and Prince Louis of Cambridge, and their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, are privately commemorating the anniversary.
Diana, affectionately called the People’s Prince, was well-known for her open and caring approach. She was also known for her love for William and Harry, her breakdown with Prince Charles, and charitable work.
The BBC wrote to the royal family this year to apologize for the circumstances surrounding Diana’s 1995 Panorama interview.
Earl Spencer, the princess’s brother, said that he “draws an imaginary line” between her television appearance on a bombshell and her death two decades later.
A BBC inquiry revealed that Martin Bashir, a journalist, used deceitful behavior to get his headline-making world exclusive. He also faked bank statements.
The program, in which Diana claimed there were “three” of them in her marriage and in which Charles was questioned about his suitability to be king, caused the Queen to encourage Wales towards divorcing.
William released a statement condemning the BBC, stating that the interview fuelled his mother’s fear, paranoia, and isolation in her final years and damaged their relationship with Prince Charles.
Harry also criticized the corporation, saying that “the ripple effect of unethical practices and exploitation ultimately cost her her life.”
Harry will publish his memoirs in 2022, which will be the 25th anniversary of Diana’s death. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will also mark the 25th anniversary.
Dodi Fayed, the princess’ lover, was killed in a car accident in Paris’ Pont de l’Alma tunnel. They were being followed by the paparazzi. Henri Paul, Mr. Fayed’s chauffeur, was speeding and drunk at the time of his crash.
Henri Paul, Mr. Fayed’s chauffeur, was too drunk to drive fast.
William was 15 and Harry 12, respectively, at the time. The brothers had to walk through central London to support Diana’s funeral procession in front of thousands of mourners.
The couple has been together for more than 20 years. Harry now lives in California with the Duchess. He describes it as “space.”
