As if Diana hadn’t left the scene, the media continues publishing articles about her and any developments related to her complicated story.
Recent scandals include the current resurfacing of the story about the famous interview she gave for BBC Panorama and Martin Bashir’s method in obtaining it.

The unveiling of her new statue
Also, there was an outburst in media speculation around the unveiling of the new statue designed and built by Ian Rank Broadley. This was commissioned by Harry, 36, as well as William, 39. Harry has been overseeing this project since it was announced in 2017.
After months of separation, Harry, Meghan, and Harry have been rumored to be back together on July 1, after rumors that a rift has grown between them.
Tensions between the brothers have complicated the unveiling of the statue. It was initially meant to be a grand ceremony with over 100 guests, including former staff from Princess Diana.
Due to concerns by the Royal House regarding health measures following the Delta-variant-triggered rebound in Covid-19 in Britain, the event has been reduced.
British media claim that only two of the Spencer siblings and some Spencer family members will be attending. The Times says Prince Charles will not participate in due to “regrettable experiences.”
Diana, the world’s most photographed woman, is still “staring back at us frozen in time,” Andrew Marr wrote The Times. She wonders, “Had Diana survived to see her seventh century, what would her lives and those of her children have been like in Britain she transformed forever?”
Here are some images that have stood the test.
The 36th birthday of the Princess of Wales came on July 1, 1997. This was her last major celebration. This was one year after her divorce from Prince Charles, and she was still rebuilding her life.
