A bronze statue of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed is to be removed from the luxury department store, Harrods.

It will be returned to the west London store’s former owner and papa of Dodi, Mohamed Al Fayed, who commissioned the commemoration after the pair were killed in 1997.

With the notice of a brand-new tribute at Kensington Palace, Harrods said the time was right to return the statue.

Mr Al Fayad sold Harrods to the Qatari Royal family in 2010 for about PS1. 5bn.

Unveiled in 2005, Innocent Victims outlines the pair moving beneath a dove.

Michael Ward, managing director at Harrods, said he had been proud to have welcomed parties from around the world to find the commemoration.

“We feel that the time is right to return this monument to Mr Al Fayed and for the public to be invited to pay their respects at the palace, ” he included.
