The only Diana memorial?

Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed memorials may be about to be removed from Harrods

Not unexpectedly, the memorials' creator, Mohamed Al Fayed, thinks the statue of his son Dodi Fayed and Princess Diana should remain in the department store, saying, "It is the only memorial to the Princess in this country, if one discounts the misconceived municipal waterworks in Hyde Park."

You can see a photo of the full statue here. It's awfully cheesy, in my opinion, but is Mr. Al Fayed right? Is this better than nothing?

  1. all that money and that was the best bust he could commission of such a beautiful and photographed lady? how sad, she deserves better

  2. I am not a big fan of this statue, but at least it does capture the kindness in her expression. A lot of people would like to see an official memorial statue of Diana, but instead there is just the fountain. Maybe one day that will change.

    1. Update! A statue of Princess Diana is to be erected at Kensington Palace. I think this is good news, and long overdue.
