    Princess Diana: Princes commission statue 20 years after her death

    Jan.29, London: A statue of Princess Diana has been commissioned by the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, 20 years after her death.

    The two princes said that "the time is right to recognise her positive impact" with a permanent statue.

    The sculpture will be erected in the public grounds of her former residence, Kensington Palace.

    A sculptor has yet to be chosen but a spokesperson said work on the artwork would begin soon.

    Princes William and Harry said in statement: "It has been 20 years since our mother's death and the time is right to recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue.

    "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."
