Al Fayed Plans Memorial to Diana

June 10, 1998

LONDON (AP) _ Mohamed Al Fayed plans to commemorate the first anniversary of the deaths of Princess Diana and his son, Dodi Fayed, with a tribute at Harrods department store.

Al Fayed, the multimillionaire owner of Harrods, is considering erecting an image of the princess and his son encased in the symbol of a dove, spokesman Laurie Mayer said Wednesday.

The tribute may stand outside the store for all passers-by _ not just Harrods shoppers _ to view, Mayer said.

``It will be permanent,″ he said.

A shrine has been set up beside the store’s Egyptian staircase ever since the couple’s Aug. 31 deaths in a Paris car crash.
