Princess Diana Was Given a New Memorial And It’s Kind of…Different

A new memorial honoring Princess Diana 20 years after her death has been erected in the town of Chesterfield, England. You would think that a tribute dedicated to one of the most widely-loved British figures of the past century would be on the side of elegance, but this recent memorial is…well it’s not quite what you’d expect.

Instead of featuring the princess with her signature kind smile and warm disposition, the artist decided to go more so down the route of Diana staring into your soul.

At least it’s given life to some pretty fantastic Twitter responses.

The tribute brings to mind another less than accurate monument dedicated to a popular European figure in the recently created bust of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Maybe this is the beginning of a new trend of creating tributes that don’t look much like the people they represent? If so, be on the lookout for Albert Einstein with a Gene Simmons-esque tongue sticking out or Winston Churchill with googly eyes.
