Princess Diana is "still being blanked" by the Royal Family 24 years on from her death, a royal commenter has suggested.

Royal writer Daniela Elser noted that "not a single other member of the royal family" apart from the Wales brothers posted on social media about the unveiling of Diana's statue on Thursday.

Prince Harry and Prince William stood side by side in Kensington Palace yesterday to unveil the statue of their late mother, the Princess of Wales.

The commenter also indicates that the monarchy made no attempt at funding the statue that was so important to the two brothers.

Daniela Elser told News.com.au: "Tellingly, there has not been a single indication that the Queen and co might have dipped into their deep, deep pockets to help finance the bronze piece.

"When the project was announced in January 2017, William and Harry via joint statement said they had established 'a committee to commission and privately raise funds for the creation of the statue'."

Prince Harry flew into the UK last week and isolated at Frogmore Cottage, where Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank now live, although it was divided up to make it Covid-safe for his visit.

The former royal isolated for five days before the event and had to take multiple tests to prove he was negative for the virus.

It is understood that Harry has flown back to LA without meeting the Queen, The Express reports.

Elser said: "Thursday’s Court Circular, the official record of engagements carried about by working members of the royal family, failed to mention the event."

The royal commenter suggests that the lack of other royal's attending and tweeting the event is "no accident".

"Inside was a testament to what can happen to troublesome and vexatious royal recruits," she said.

The ceremony saw crowds outside Kensington Palace who held up photos and flags in tribute to the 'People's Princess' on what would have been her 60th birthday.

On Thursday, The Diana Award tweeted: "Today we stand alongside The Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex as they celebrate the legacy of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales."
