“Diana would have stood up for them and she would have seen the position they held in the mirror of some of the challenges she faced within the institution, but I think one thing we need to remember with Harry’s relationship is and William today is not over. ‘
Prince William and Prince Harry are believed to be at the official statue unveiling next year.
