The memorial statue honouring Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed has been removed from London luxury department store Harrods after 20 years.
The statue was erected following Diana and Al-Fayed’s death in a Paris car crash in 1997. They were dating at the time of the accident.
Al-Fayed’s father, Egyptian-born businessman Mohamed Al-Fayed, told The Daily Mail the statue is now displayed in his garden in Surrey.
“It is a blessing and a comfort to have the statue of Dodi and Princess Diana in the privacy of our family home after having shared it with the public for so many years in Harrods,” he said. “Dodi was a wonderful son who lived life to the full and this statue of them both at one of the happiest times of their lives is a perpetual memory to their love and their fulfilled lives.”
Mohamed used to own Harrods and revealed the statue was moved during Easter.
