to mark the milestone birthday and celebrate the statue

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DIANA SUPERFAN AND ROYAL FAN, JOHN LOUGHREY, SAYING:"It would have been Diana's 60th birthday today, and there's no one else prouder than her two sons, William and Harry.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) 31-YEAR-OLD ROYAL FAN, FROM BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND, PATRICK O'NEILL, SAYING:

"The work she's done, if she was alive, I think she would be doing a lot of things with mental health and William and Harry have really carried that on. And I think she would love the two duchesses and I think she would love if they could repair that relationship. I say that would break her heart, but it's broken mine."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UK-BASED NIGERIAN PROFESSOR, CHRIS IMAFIDON, SAYING:

"Nobody tells the world what Diana did in Africa. They don't tell you how she changed leprosy, changed HIV, changed the thinking of girls and education. // And long after she's gone, she planted that seed, aspirational seed in little girls."
