Dubious Diana portraits among tributes at Kensington Palace on would-be 60th birthday

The date would have been Diana's 60th birthday. There were also floral and other tributes left outside the palace and while the artistic merits of some of the paintings might be questioned, the well-meaning nature of the tributes could not be doubted.
