Another statue, another dance of media and culture. Last week, on what would have been her 60th birthday, Princes William and Harry unveiled a bronze likeness of their mother Princess Diana by the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. Located in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, it includes three unnamed children standing about her.
The occasion combined respectful expressions of sympathy for the princess and her sons with frantic readings of the runes – who wasn’t there (Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cambridge) and what did that mean? What could you learn from the princes’ body language about their relationship to each other?
