A statue of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, commissioned by the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex, will be installed on what would have been her 60th birthday, Kensington Palace revealed.

In 2017, Diana's two sons commissioned the statue to honour their mum and all she did for the world.

Kensington Palace said installation of the sculpture had been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic, but would be put in lace on July 1, 2021.

It has been created by artist Ian Rank-Broadley, whose portrait of the Queen appears on all UK coins.

Further details of the design will be announced later, according to Kensington Palace.
