Kensington Palace revealed that the statue, which is located at the Sunken Garden, also had an extra special touch.

"Beneath the statue is a plinth engraved with The Princess’ name and the date of the unveiling," they said. "In front of the statue is a paving stone engraved with an extract after the poem The Measure of A Man which featured in the programme for the 2007 memorial service for The Princess."

"Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy."

Also in attendance was Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, and her sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Jane Fellowes. Other members of the royal family weren't allowed to come due to COVID-19 protocols, though it was reported that William wanted to show the figure to wife Kate Middleton and their three kids.

William and Harry are expected to meet privately after the ceremony to try and make amends.
