A private moment for the family to reflect is planned at Princess Diana resting place in Northamptonshire.
Prince William and Prince Harry, accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge will attend a private service on Saturday to re-dedicate the grave of Diana, Princess of Wales.
The very personal service will take place on what would have been Diana’s 56th birthday, at her family home of Althorp House in Northamptonshire.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will also be bringing Prince George and Princess Charlotte with them to Althorp House, to pay their respects to the grandmother they will never meet.
The re-dedication of Diana’s grave will be given by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Diana’s brother, the Earl of Spencer will also be at the private family service, as well as Princess Diana’s sisters.
This August marks the 20th anniversary of Diana’s tragic death, following a terrible car accident in Paris, France. Diana died on 31 August 1997, when her sons were just 15 and 12.
A series of events and special tributes have been planned throughout the year to honour Princess Diana’s life. Kensington Palace, Diana’s home for many years, have put on an exhibition looking back at her style throughout her life.
Prince William and Harry have planned a series of tributes to their late mother. These include presenting the ‘Diana Award’ to exemplary youngster to mark their achievements, and taking part in a special TV show dedicated to honouring Princess Diana’s life and charitable contributions.
One person that will not be attending the private event in Northamptonshire on Saturday is Prince Charles. The next-in-line to the throne will not attend the re-dedication of his ex-wife’s grave because he is not in the country. Official say he will be in Canada with the Duchess of Cornwall.
