OPINION: Royal Statue Fails To Capture Princess Diana, says PATTY SAFFRAN

DIANA had an ethereal beauty and she was always fashionable. Neither characteristic was captured by Ian Rank-Broadley in his new sculpture.

The statue was unveiled last week, to mark Diana’s 60th Birthday, yet it has divided Brits. Prince William and Prince Harry unveiled the art along with the sculptor, and Diana’s brother and sisters.

Presumedly, a maquette, a small model, was presented and approved by William, Harry and the Palace.

The question is how did this work get approved when the face bears little resemblance to Diana, and the sculpted version makes her body look massive rather than svelte. Her hair looks plastered down, and the dress has little flow.

A sculpture of Diana should be an inspiration to all who were helped by her and believed in her charity work. This new sculpture falls short of that goal.
