london – In life, Princess Diana broke the mold for being a modern royal, a legacy that lives on 24 years after her death. it was thursdayIt’s 60th birthday. To mark the occasion, her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, were to unveil a statue in their honor outside Kensington Palace, but headlines have been the princes’ troubled relationship.
Following Harry and wife Meghan’s decision to step back from royal duties last year, and then publiclyHarry’s growing rift with his brother Prince William – in a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey – opened up.
“It’s love against duty,” said Robert Lacey, author of “Battle of Brothers. It’s William protecting the monarchy and Harry protecting his wife.”
Diana’s deep commitment to humanitarian work was fueled not only by her dazzling presence but also by her ability to connect with people. When she died, aged 36, the wave of mourning for the “People’s Princess” was unlike anything the monarchy had seen before.
Photos of her two younger sons, who were just 12 and 15 years old at the time, broke hearts with their every move on the long walk behind their mother’s coffin. It will be another funeral for his grandfatherIn Rill, who reunited the brothers for the first time since their differences came to light, but reportedly still weren’t keeping pace with each other.
As William, Harry and the world contemplate what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday, her legacy is not only lasting, but one that continues for the royal family.
“The controversy and interest over the boys, William and Harry, have obscured the fact that the unveiling of a statue of Diana, the royal rebel 20, 30 years ago, is a deeply significant event. It is a recognition of the changing style. About the British Monarchy. That this reach of Diana, this common touch, this courtship, this flirting with the media, is now mainstream for the royal family,” Lacey said.
