THE newly-unveiled statue of Princess Diana is a bit too much, Britain has agreed.
The bronze shows the Princess leading a group of multiracial children from hardship to happiness while looking gorgeous, which in all fairness is not something she actually did.
Onlooker Francesa Johnson said: “She was a wonderful woman taken too early and helped with landmines and AIDS and that. She made a difference. But this? Really?
“It looks like they’ve captured her emerging from the clearing smoke of a bombed orphanage with the barefoot refugee kids she’s miraculously saved, and as far as I’m aware that didn’t in fact happen. Though I kind of remember it now.
“Like, when we have a statue of Churchill we don’t pose him holding Hitler up by his neck with his other arm cocked into a fist. We trust people to fill in the gaps themselves.
“Plus it’s sort of a bit sexy, which I guess she was but doesn’t seem entirely appropriate in a sunken garden dedicated to her memory.
“It would only be slightly less tacky if they’d rigged it as a water feature to cry real tears. Which I imagine they considered.”
