The statue of the Princess Diana is surrounded by three children and depicts Diana in the later years of her life. The bronze statue, by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, was commissioned by Prince William and Prince Harry in 2017, and aims to recognise the Princess’s positive impact in the UK and around the world, and reflect her warmth, elegance and energy.

The statue stands in the Palace’s newly-conserved Sunken Garden, with an updated planting scheme designed by Pip Morrison featuring a number of the Princess’s favourite blooms.
