London Luxury Store To Remove Princess Diana's Statue

14 January, 2018, 12:53 | Author: Cecil Buchanan
  • London luxury department store Harrods said it was taking down a statue of the late Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed

The statue was installed in 2005 and remained at Harrods after the Qatari royal family bought the store in 2010.

A statue of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Fayed that has been widely described as "tacky" will be removed from Harrods.

With the announcement of a new memorial at Kensington Palace, Harrods said the time was right to return the statue.

"We are very proud to have played our role in celebrating the lives of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Al Fayed at Harrods and to have welcomed people from around the world to visit the memorial for the past 20 years", he said.

Now, they have seized the opportunity to remove the shrine and return it to its owner, Dodi's father Mohammed al Fayed, 88, in the hope that it might one day entice the British monarchy back through its doors.

Diana's sons Princes William and Harry were commissioning their own statue to their mother at Kensington Palace.

Iran Rejects Trump Demand For Renegotiation Of Nuclear Deal
President Donald Trump on Friday said he is extending sanctions relief to Iran under the 2015 nuclear deal, but for the last time. Trump has argued behind the scenes that the nuclear deal makes the United States look weak, a senior USA official said.


Harrods was first awarded a royal warrant in 1913, but this was removed in 2000 following a "significant decline in the trading relationship over several years".

It is entitled Innocent Victims, a reference to Mr Al Fayed's belief - unsupported by any evidence, according to the inquest - that the couple were murdered on the orders of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Ten years later, he revealed he had had the "cursed" warrants burned.

Mr Al Fayed said he wanted to keep the pair's "spirit alive" through the statue.

In a statement to the Times, the Al Fayed family thanked Qatar Holdings for "preserving" the memorial until now. "It is now time to bring them home".

Years later, he claimed the club was relegated because the new owner had had it taken down.
