William and Harry want to unveil Diana statue privately with no press present

Prince William and Prince Harry are set to unveil a new statue of their late mother Princess Diana in a scaled-down celebration with little to no press, a royal author has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex touched down in the UK on Friday and is now believed to have been staying with his cousin Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank at Frogmore Cottage.

Harry's return has been much anticipated in light of his apparent feud with brother Prince William and other family members since he shared the shocking revelations on numerous interviews.

Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie, who is also a close friend of Meghan Markle, confirmed that the Diana memorial will likely to have only one reporter attending the event.

He spoke on ABC's Heirpod podcast: "It is going to be a private event and by private event, I mean there will be little to no press presence at all.

"In fact despite reports saying that the Sussexes were bringing their own media team in and William was going to include all of the royal rota, it is actually much more strip backs.

"There will be presence of the video camera, of course, to capture the moment as well as a photographer. And a reporter representing an agency who will share with the rest of the world's media."

The unveiling of Princess Diana's statue will be held at the Sunken Garden inside Kensington Palace on July 1 and Omid revealed that both William and Harry will be meeting other people throughout the day that have "played significant roles in her life of philanthropic journey".

"I think that's the most neutral way of doing it, especially when you have two brothers who would most likely want to enjoy this moment as privately as they can," he added.

"This comes very close to what would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday, so a year in which her life is perhaps going to be celebrated just a little bit more than it usually is every year."
