London Street Painter Bambi Unveils Princess Diana Graffiti

Princess Diana Bambi

Street artist Bambi has unveiled a heartwarming new graffiti in celebration of the life of Princess Diana, who died 20 years ago on Thursday,

Her latest dazzling work can be spotted in Seven Dials off Monmouth Street in the heart of London’s Theatreland.

It shows the “people’s princess” dressed as Mary Poppins, floating down from the heavens with an umbrella and Harrods bag (a nod to her lover Dodi al Fayed, son of the luxury department store boss Mohammad al Fayed, who died with her in the tragic Paris car crash) to meet her grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.


Words near the scene read “Be as naughty as you want, just don’t get caught”. Prince William recently revealed that his mother used to say this to himself and brother Prince Harry when they were little boys.

“I believe in this world, with a sprinkling of fairy dust, anything is possible and dreams can come true,” said Bambi, who creates street art to provide social commentary, most commonly about female identity in the context of the patriarchy and often through the depiction of iconic contemporary figures.

She recently gained international acclaim for her Lie Lie Land graffiti, showing a dancing Theresa May and Donald Trump in the pose made famous by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the Oscar-winning movie La La Land.
