Talented artist Autumn Ying has shared her lovely sketches of the late Princess Diana with The Royal UK.
She has a huge following on Instagram, where she posts everything from fashion designs to finely-detailed portraits of Diana and other members, but these new images might be her best work yet.
These stupendous sketches imagine that Princess Diana is alive today, showing her with various individuals from the royal family. In two of them, she is with the daughter-in-law she never got the chance to meet, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex. In one, she holds hands with them as they walk. The young Duchesses are seen wearing the outfits they wore to the Centenary help at Westminster Abbey in November 2018.
In the other picture, she remains adjacent to a big white Christmas tree with her arms around Kate and Meghan. Each of the three ladies can be seen wearing impressive evening dresses and Meghan clutches her baby bump.
The best sketch is of Diana with her two adult sons.
Prince William embraces her from behind, while she catches a situated Prince Harry’s hand. It’s a recreation of the well known outside photoshoot the family did in 1988. At that time William was only six and Harry was three. This picture is an excellent tribute to the late princess’ affection for her children.
Prince William was only 15 years old when his mother died and Prince Harry was just 12. Both the brothers have since spoken about how difficult it was for them to get over their grief. But while Princess of Wales, Diana, never got to see them grow up, get married and have children of their own, it’s clear that both men still feel her presence.
When William proposed to Kate Middleton in October 2010, he presented her with his mother’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Moreover, when Prince Harry got engaged in November 2017, he said that he was sure his mum was ” jumping with joy” about the news.
