Statue Of Princess Diana And Dodi Al-Fayed Has Been Removed From Harrods. Why?

When the People’s Princess, Diana, died in the 1997 Paris car crash, people were shocked. At the time of her death, she was with Emad “Dodi” Al-Fayed, her Egyptian partner.

The infamous Harrods statue

In 2005, a statue was erected at the famous Harrods in their honor. The statue, commissioned by Dodi Al-Fayed’s father who owned Harrods at the time, was titled Innocent Victims.

It showed Princess Diana in her classic haircut and an evening gown, dancing with Dodi Al-Fayed beneath the wings of an albatross.

Although, it was an effort by Mohamed Al-Fayed to commemorate his son, the statue got a lot of criticism for its depiction of Princess Diana.

Harrods removes the statue

Prince William and Harry announced last year that a new statue of their mother had been commissioned to mark the 20th anniversary of her death.

And in response, Innocent Victims has now been moved to the family home of the Al-Fayeds.

Harrods managing director, Michael Ward, said earlier this year:

We’re very proud to have welcomed people from around the world to visit the memorial for the past 20 years.
