Since, a number of Britons have been taken with the likeness between the two.

Posting side-by-side images to Twitter, one wrote the comparison gave them: “Literal chills!”

Another wrote: “Diana is absolutely stunning, flawless there. William is his mother’s son. She would be so proud of him.”

“They are so alike. Hazza got absolutely no genes from his mother,” another commented.

One said: “They have the same nose.”

“I think he looks a good mix of Charles and Diana Harry is all Charles,” one wrote.

“They are like 2 peas in a pod. Both fabulous. Diana is so beautiful. William very, very handsome,” one said.

Another commented: “#William is almost a #Diana clone.”

“Looking so much like his mom,” one wrote.

Another echoed the sentiment, and wrote: “He is so like his mother…”

It portrays the Princess later in her life in a role she enjoyed, humanitarian and carer.

The statue depicts the mother of two surrounded by three children, placing protective arms around them.

Harry and William released a joint statement for the event.

It read: “Today, on what would have been our Mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better.

“Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.

“Thank you to Ian Rank-Broadley, Pip Morrison and their teams for their outstanding work, to the friends and donors who helped make this happen, and to all those around the world who keep our mother’s memory alive.”

There have been reports of a rift between Prince Harry and William for many months, making this week’s meeting between the pair poignant for the public.

A relationship expert has told Express.co.uk how Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey will make “resolution much harder.”

Relationship expert Neil Wilkie told Express.co.uk: “Family rifts often have their roots in a small miscommunication or misunderstanding.

“Unless these are dealt with, they fester, grow and positions become hardened.

“The original cause may even be forgotten, what is remembered is that it was ‘all their fault’ and ‘it can never be resolved.’

“It is even harder in the case of celebrities or the Royal Family because they are in the glare of publicity and disagreements make juicy TV or column inches.

“Expressing your family angst in front of millions of viewers or readers can only create a hardening of positions.”
