As happened on April 9 of this year with the death of Felipe de Edimburgo today, July 1, the United Kingdom succumbed in the greatest of tributes since the iconic Lady Di would have turned 60. Born in 1961 in Sandringham, Diana became one of the most respected members of the monarchy since her marriage to the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles who, despite everything, made life miserable for his wife.
So much so that, as history relates, Lady Di she chose to divorce her husband, but beyond this, she never ceased to be one of the most beloved women not only in England, but in the world. That is why today, together with her two sons, Princes William and Harry, all the subjects of who remains the Princess of Wales decided to honor her in a very special way.
It was in 2017 when the dukes decided to request a bronze statue of Lady Di which was discovered today in Kensington Palace, which was their official residence for years.. With this decision, both William and Harry were reunited with their uncles, the Spencer brothers and those closest to Princess Diana since health restrictions reduced access for figures like Kate Middleton.

On the other hand, those who were also conspicuous by their absence in this tribute to the princess were Queen Elizabeth II and her eldest son, Prince Charles, who assured that attending would reopen old wounds. However, other people who ignored the memory of the Earl of Spencer’s daughter were the actors of The Crown since no one commented on the matter about the memory of Diana.
There were many personalities around the world who remembered this woman so defiant for the monarchy, but not even Emma Corrin who played Lady Di in the fourth season and Elizabeth Debicki, who will be in his shoes in the fifth edition spoke about it. In fact, the only time some of the cast members spoke about the monarchy was when Prince Philip died.
Since its premiere, The Crown It was characterized as one of the series that most angered the members of the Royal family. Moreover, in the last season, released last year, the inclusion of Lady Di and Prince Charles was the straw that broke the camel’s back for many since different controversies were played again which, according to the Windsors’ opinion, were buried over the years and, one of them, is the fateful death of the princess and even the role that Camilla Parker Bowles played in the marriage of the Princes of Wales.
