long-awaited statue to honor Princess Diana is set to be installed this summer on what would have been the late royal's 60th birthday — July 1, 2021. Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, announced in August that the statue will stand in the garden of their mother's former home, Kensington Palace, and help people "reflect on her life and legacy."

Plans for the statue were first announced in February 2017, the year of many commemorations of Diana's life, as it marked 20 years since she died in a car crash in Paris. She was 36.
