Princess Diana's Statue unveiling: Harry and William Reunite and Family Tributes

The Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex were reunited at the highly-anticipated unveiling of a statue of their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

In a joint tribute, the royal brothers said: "Today, on what would have been our mother's 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better.

"Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy. 

"Thank you to Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams for their outstanding work, to the friends and donors who helped make this happen, and to all those around the world who keep our mother’s memory alive."

Prince William, 39, was pictured driving in London ahead of the event, which will take place at the Sunken Gardens at Kensington Palace.

It marked the first time William and Prince Harry have been pictured together since the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral in April. The Duke of Sussex flew to the UK from Los Angeles last Friday in order to complete a period of isolation before attending the event.

The date marks what would have been Diana's 60th birthday, with tributes being paid around the world to the late Princess.

Royal fans flocked to the gates of Kensington Palace to leave flowers, banners and cards.

William and Harry, who looked smart in dark suits with ties, arrived a few minutes early for the unveiling and stopped in a shrub-lined path outside the garden to chat to the chairman of the statue committee Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.
