Prince Charles was not present at today’s unveiling ceremony, which has been turned into a ‘private event’ instead of the big celebration to mark Diana’s life as originally planned.
The decision to reduce the reveal was in large part due to animosity between the brothers and Harry’s determination to control media coverage – and only aired after the Duke of Sussex was terminated and departed.
In a joint statement from the Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex released this afternoon, the brothers said: “Every day we wish that she was always with us, and our hope is that this statue will be considered forever. a symbol of his life and his legacy.

The lively Duke of Sussex had cheered enthusiastically and was seen joking with his uncle Earl Spencer and Diana’s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, greeting his two aunts with big kisses.
And at one point Harry yelled across the garden with his hands cupped around his mouth and laughed laughingly – but William looked a lot more serious throughout the short ceremony after 18 months at hardly speak to his younger brother since he emigrated.
Harry then made an abrupt exit – leaving Kensington Palace after just 90 minutes – despite arriving just 15 minutes before the ceremony began.
It’s unclear if he would return to Frogmore Cottage, where he might meet his grandmother, the Queen, who has just returned to Windsor for the annual horse show after a tour of Scotland.
Or he could be heading to Heathrow tonight to return to LA to be with Meghan, Archie and Lilibet. There are also rumors of a “guys lunch” being held with old friends from school and the military.
