All eyes might be on little Prince George on his first day at school and Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend Meghan Markle but our hearts still bare a special place for Princess Diana. In particular, this year, since it’s exactly 20 years ago since she tragically lost her life. As a result, the town centre of Chesterfield decided to reveal their handmade memorial in remembrance of Diana’s death. Unfortunately, this didn’t exactly go as planned.
Volunteers worked on the artwork for over 120 hours using eggshells, flowers and grass seeds. However, this hard work isn’t exactly the reason why this specific memorial has been mentioned in the news. Instead, people describe it as ‘horrendous’ since it’s described as striking more resemblances to Worzel Gummidge than Diana. Luckily a local mentioned: “I saw it and thought what an insult to Diana.. Luckily she had a sense of humour and would probably be laughing if she could see it.”
