The new statue of Queen Elizabeth II will be placed in a prominent location in London
The new statue of Queen Elizabeth II will be placed in a “prominent” location in London, according to a new report.
The London Assembly unanimously passed a motion for a new permanent monument to Britain’s late Queen. The place will be chosen “in consultation with the royal family”.
This followed calls from MPs shortly after his death in September for a statue to be placed on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square.
The motion, according to the BBC, was put forward by Conservative AM Nick Rogers, who said a “prominent public place” would be a “suitable reward” for preserving his memory, at a meeting last week.
An earlier version of the motion said the statue should be placed on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, but the final wording said its location should “be decided in consultation with the Royal Family”.
